"I'd actually prepared these brownies when they were featured in Taste of Home and yes, this recipe is a keeper! I have made adjustments to this recipe as I plan to prepare it in 2 weeks for a luncheon at my chapel. My adjustments are as follows: I have been using 1/3 cup each of vegetable oil and water & 1/4 cup chocolate syrup. For filling, I'm omitting the walnuts and using a substitute of 1 package of Oreo instant pudding mix plus enough crushed cookies to equal 1 cup. I'd used about 3 Tbsp. milk for the icing! I'd used 1 tsp. coffee granules (Instant coffee) for more flavor and kept the amount of chocolate chips the same & the 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine the same amount! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein"
