Ratings & Reviews

    Honestly, after a year and half, I tried every recipe I could find and thought I found one recipe that was 4.5 stars. Came across this one by mistake and decided to give it a try. Should have tried this one FIRST!! This recipe is a keeper. The only change I made was that I used a 9 x 9 pan and omitted the chocolate chips and NO frosting. Next time, I will use a 8 x 8 pan for thicker brownies. Extremely easy to make and you won't go back to box brownies.
    I subbed oil for butter and used extra dark cocoa powder for an adult party. Perfect dark chocolate brownies that weren't overly sweet. I will definitely make these again.
    Simply delicious! Everybody loved it! :D
    My mother made these for me when I was a child. I lost the recipe after my kids grew up. They are excellent and so simple to make.
    They were very moist and delicious!
    I HAVE USED THIS RECIPE FOR YEARS! IT IS THE BEST BROWNIE RECIPE EVER! OFTEN I MADE IT IN THE CLASSROOM AS CHILDREN LOVE THE "SCIENCE PROJECT" BAKING SODA REACTION!
    I have been using this recipe for at least 20 years and it never fails. It makes the best brownies, add some ice cream and WOW!
    Very good brownies.
