I've spent years trying different recipes in search of the perfect brownie...and this scrumptious version might be it. The fluffy melt-in-your-mouth top layer is absolutely heavenly. It's impossible to eat just one!—Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah

"This is the absolute best brownie ever! It melts in your mouth."

"This recipe for the brownies was so good. I did not have the cream to make the topping, so I did the brownies with a chocolate icing from another brownie recipe.

Yum! Will make them again and again. I will try the topping with the Chocolate Brownies Recipe next time. Best brownie ever, thank you for sharing."

"This is an excellent recipe, I've made it several times. I'm going to use it as a base for the Mint Sundae Brownie Squares recipe since I'm not a big fan of box brownie mix."

"I used this recipe to make brownie bites with miniature reeses peanute butter cups pressed in the middle! Out of this world :) I also think they would be really good with rolos in the center."

"I was short on time so I used a boxed brownie mix for the bottom. Was very tasty! I would like to try the full recipe another time."
