These rich cake-like brownies are generously topped with a scrumptious mocha frosting. They're an excellent dessert to serve to company...or to share when you need a dish to pass. Be sure to hold back a few if you want leftovers! —Jill Bonanno Prineville, Oregon

"Revision to my first review: Great frosting, really dry brownie. There are better mixes for chewiness. Make the frosting, but find a different recipe for the brownies"
