    I made this recipe for the first time last night. I took half the pan to work today & they were gone before lunch time. Several people asked for the recipe. They were very easy to make. These are some of the chocolatiest brownies I have ever made. I like them way better than the Nestle chocolate chocolate chip brownies. Definetly fudgeier.

    The family reviewed these as the best brownies ever. I added some leftover caramel chips to it and they were amazing.
