MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2014

Sorry to say, this was probably the least favorite brownie recipe I've made yet. I've made about half a dozen or so, trying for the perfect recipe (by the way, think I've found it under Speedy Brownies here at Taste of Home). These were too chocolatey with all the chips, and maybe that's why the brownie/cake part is not sweet enough - to not make it too rich. But it takes the worst from both worlds - not sweet enough in one part and super-duper rich in another. But definitely try the other recipe if you're not satisfied with this one.

MY REVIEW

I know I'm in the minority but I thought these were not that great. I cooked them the minimum time and they came out very cakey. The brownie was pretty bland- they lacked the sweetness we like in brownies. We actually ended up throwing most of the pan away after they sat on the counter untouched.

These brownies are delicious! The chocolate flavor is amazing and the texture is the perfect blend between chewy and fudgy. My coworkers ate these brownies up in a jiffy!

This is my favorite brownie recipe. It's nice that you don't have to get out the mixer for it. Have to be careful to not overtake as it will be more cake-like.
