Recipe Comments & Reviews

Really, really good brownies and easy! I also made them with milk chocolate chips and kinda like them better. Both ways are awesome!!
I find this recipe VERY easy to make and have had many people ask for the recipe! You do want to be mindful not to overcook them or they become dry - but a little icecream will fix that RIGHT up!
Mouth-watering! I haven't tried the optional toppings yet, but this brownie is truly fudgy and flavorful. I've been asked for this recipe several times!
These brownies have never failed me. I try to use chocolate that is higher quality for better flavor. I've made them many different ways swirled in a peanut butter filling, stirred in mint chips, and various toppings also and they have turned out great every time. Moist, chewy, and deliciously easy.
I made it with the peanut butter cups and it was awesome!!
Wonderful! I like to use Snickers candy bar pieces instead of the peanut butter cups and it still tastes great!

I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
