"Mine came out too dry on the edges and I would've liked a stronger chocolate flavor (more cocoa, perhaps?)"

"I make brownies all the time but I do not like to eat them, I give them away. This recipe is probably my favorite brownie recipe yet. I would make these again and I will eat them."

"Very good but more of a sheet cake than a brownie in my opinion. Everyone who ate any of these raved about them. I added a dash of almond flavoring to the coconut along with the vanilla."

"Excellent but very rich! I thought 48 servings listed on the recipe seemed like awfully small pieces, but you won't want one any bigger than that!"
