"Very soft, moist brownie with classic chocolate frosting. These probably would be living in my dreams if I was still a child. Great, easy recipe for a gathering!"

"Fantastic brownie! I often add whipped cream instead if the milk in the frosting makes it super fluffy. Served these at my neice's wedding reception. Everyone lived them."
