    I am surprised nobody ever rated this before--I have been making these for years! This is a great recipe. They are best chilled but they are good warm out of the oven too. My electricity went off in the middle of my preparation today and I forgot that the brownie layer is supposed to be baked first (I was using the online recipe). I put the top layer on while waiting for the electricity to turn back on. I baked the whole thing for about 40 minutes and they turned out fine.
