    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Didn’t change anything and left it in the oven for 25 minutes and turned out perfect! It was gooey and cakey at the same time! Will DEFINITELY make again!

    Best homemade brownies ever. I add some chopped walnuts to the surface. While its cooling I drizzle caramel on top 😍

    They were yum but burnt on the surface. Maybe I should have set for a lesser time frame in the oven or set the temperature less I guess. But absolutely loved them!

    I’d use a 1/2 cup of sugar next time personally I feel the sugar amount was too much but I didn’t find out how sweet they were until after I made them! I added walnuts on top!

    They are a little fluffier than I prefer as I like dense brownies They are tasty though. I added walnuts

    Not bad, not as cocoa/chocolatey as required to earn the title "best".

    Way too much sugar, made it a bit crusty on edges and just tasted like over cooked sugar. Also had to make a double batch in order to fit 9x9 pan.

    Good. I used less sugar and more BP. It turned out nice cakey brownie.

    Yes. The whole family loved these warm with vanilla iced cream. What I love is that it's a quick and easy recipe that uses what I always have on hand. It's a new go to for us as well👍🏻

    Very quick and easy! Definitely trying this again!
    Used this recipe for ‘special’ brownies and they turned out amazing!

    They were fantastic I did not wait 15 minutes for them to cool, because I couldn’t. My Trader Joe cocoa was not as dark as yours. I even added more. They turned out more of a milk chocolate brownie and I absolutely loved them. The recipe is so easy that I have it memorized after one batch! Thank you Georgia.
