    Giving two stars because the recipe ingredients is incomplete. Am in the middle of making this how, when reading the second half of the directions and I learn marshmallow creme, vanilla, and chocolate chips are needed. I don't have the marshmallow, so I'm going to try and improvise with peanut butter. Really annoyed with this. Won't be using taste of home recipes anymore because of this. ????

    Great recipe! Makes really great fudge and brownies. Next time I'll make them separate and serve two desserts. Best recipe I've found for both!

    The amazing thing about these brownies was that they really do turn out as attractive as the picture of them! Yes, they are somewhat rich, but they are a wonderful treat to enjoy slowly- more of something you'd nibble on, rather than taking big bites of. One thing I found out the first time I made them, is that it is best to cool the brownies completely before topping with the fudge. The first time, I poured the fudge on the warm brownies and it squashed the brownies significantly (after all, fudge is rather heavy). It's better to make the fudge a few hours later, when the brownies aren't soft from being in the oven, and pour it on then. They're great for a bake sale because a pan goes a long way- you can cut them small and people still get a wonderful treat.

    I think these were just a little to sweet. But the kids really enjoyed them.
