Since you "dump" all the ingredients together for these brownies, they take very little time to prepare. There's no mistaking the homemade goodness of a freshly baked batch—they are rich and fudgy! —Diane Heier, Harwood, North Dakota

"Very good, very easy. I read the reviews and it is funny how to some say these are the best and a few others say they are the worst. Maybe some people can't bake. I put espresso choc. chips on top and I thought they were great."

"I have made these twice now, these are the best brownies and they are so moist stay that way for a days if they last that long. I added on my second batch 1 c chopped walnuts, just because we love walnuts and they were fabulous. This is my new brownie recipe, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!"

"These brownies where easy to make and like other reviewer said, the next day they where amazing!

Also I can't help but laugh at one review :D I really hope she posted this as a joke! A cup HOLDS 8oz of WATER, chocolate chips have air pockets around them, so they will be lighter, and a cup of feathers will be even lighter :D"

"I made these on a whim after having a serious craving for brownies, and fresh out of the oven, I had an experience similar to some other reviewers here: the brownies were too dry for my taste, more cakey than gooey or fudgey... However, upon tasting them the next day, they are delicious. Gooey and chocolatey and your perfect brownie. The third day, even - just as delicious. Long story short, if you find your brownies a bit dry out of the oven, let them rest for a few hours and then dig in."

"I got this recipe originally from the Taste of Home magazine a few years ago. I love it and so does everyone that eats the ones I make. Of course, us cooks all have our own little 'touches' and 'substitutes' we use, as I do with this recipe. That's OK too.

I highly recommend anyone to use this recipe.
They are oh, so good."

"I was reluctant to try this recipe as it calls for canola oil instead of butter. I did make them, and they turned out to be very good. I took them to serve after a function, and they were all eaten. I did reduce the eggs to 4 instead of 5 as another reviewer suggested. A good brownie recipe ... and quick too."

"Easy to make, but not as fudgy as I expected."

"Just made these this evening. They are very good. They have a cake/fudgy consistency. I started checking them at 25 minutes for doneness. My oven took about 28 minutes - the toothpick still had some moist crumbs on it. The only change I made was I used 4 eggs, because that was all I had. They still turned out great. Would make them again. Nice simple recipe with great results. Just don't over bake them."
