This came out so strange with a very unexpected taste. Very dense and like a cookie, not at all like a brownie. Although I made no errors while baking, the edge and top was almost burnt while the middle was underdone. I am not sure what went wrong here, but I know I will not be making this again. Very disappointing.

I made these for a family party & everyone loved them! I used 3/4 cup pre-crushed Heath bits, and substituted semisweet chocolate morsels for the chunks (because that's what I had on hand). They baked 18 minutes and were done. Excellent recipe -- a keeper!

I may have cooked them too long as the edges were a bit crunchy.. upgraded this to 5 stars, as I think they actually got better the next day!... Delicious!

I love blond brownies and these sound so good! We are not Heath bar fans is there another candy bar to substitute? Would it be too much chocolate to use a Hershey bar?

Used milk chocolate chips instead of chunks of chocolate and this was fantastic. I will be making these to take camping all summer long!

Not sure if I did it wrong, it came out like cookie dough. It was good, sure, but it felt wrong...also I rolled it out in a cookie sheet.
