"I am wondering if you need to refridgerate the leftovers since there's Cool Whip and cream cheese in the frosting?Thanks!"
"These are officially my favorite brownies! I used chopped walnuts and i didnt put the caramel topping or the shaved candy bar on top (unnecessary calories) and it was the perfect amount of sweetness. Got many requests for the recipe :)"
