These brownies have been in my recipe collection since I was 9 years old. I've added to and altered the recipe over the years, and now I think it has the perfect amount of everything, including semisweet and milk chocolate chips and pecans. They are my husband's and son's favorite. -Louise Stacey, Dane, Wisconsin

I just realized I used salted butter. That's why it's too salty.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2013

It was all good until I added the salt and baking powder. It has too much of a salt taste, and takes away from some of the sweet. Since I used natural salt, maybe I should have used less. I also didn't put in the chocolate chips or nuts. So maybe without those, you have to adjust to using less salt.

MY REVIEW

Excellent! No complaints, these brownies were awesome. I baked them in a 8 x 8 pan instead since my husband likes his brownies to be thick so they had to bake a lot longer. This will be my go-to brownie recipe!
