Oatmeal and wheat germ add a nutritious touch to these fudgy brownies sent in by Marilyn Yates of Roanoke, Virginia. "This recipe seems too good to be true, but these brownies really taste great," she assures. TIP: Use 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips if you don't have six semisweet chocolate squares.
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 1/4 cup butter
