"I was very pleased with this recipe! I did make adjustments by adding 1/2 tsp. baking soda. I'd also used 3/4 cup chocolate chips with 1/8 cup all-purpose flour! I did use 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries, but omitted the nuts. I took this pan of brownies to my ENT doctors/their staff! I'd baked 30 to 35 minutes, using a cake tester! My baking pan was greased and floured to make sure that brownies were easier to cut and ease from baking pan! The Drs' office really liked these brownies!

This is definitely a keeper for me! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

"Very good and moist. Didn't add the cherries or nuts was great without. Turned out perfectly. Baked for 30 minutes."

"I have not made brownies from scratch before. This recipe is very easy and tastes great. I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa & Special Dark chocolate Chips. If you don't like dark chocolate, use regular cocoa and milk chocolate. These were so moist and yummy! Will definitely use this recipe often."
