Reviews forFrosted Double Decker Brownies
"I made these for a gathering, and they were very well recieved."
"As the recipe's title suggests, these do go over very well with boys and men. When I made them, that is not to say they were not enjoyed by everyone. :) After taking them to a friends house, I was asked for the recipe."
