"I must agree with a previous reviewer This was a very disappointing recipe for brownies. They were too dry and not at all sweet. Definitely a letdown if you're expecting a sweet chocolate treat."

"I made it according to the recipe, and the bottom was gooey and hard to get off the foil lining I put in my meatloaf pan, but it tasted good. I made it using two tablespoon sugar and the rest Splenda. It was dry and didn't taste good."

"Delicious! As common sense should dictate, all ovens are a little bit different, some are hotter than others etc.....so DO check these so they are not overbaked. In my oven they were done perfectly in 16 minutes."

"So delicious. A perfect size batch for my family of three (two days worth for each of us). We all loved these! I did have to bake them a little bit on the longer side...about 16-17 minutes."

"bake 30-35 minutes. After 15 minutes a toothpick came out with batter still on it. I left them in for 33 minutes and the toothpick came out clean and the brownies were just right."
