"DEE-LICIOUS!! these brownies are the best homemade brownies i have tried, and i don't need to try any other. I love boxed brownies, but obsessed with making homemade versions of my favorites, and this is it. This is the brownie recipe I will use from here on out, and all my family agrees. I've tried ina garten's outrageous brownies, and did not care for them at all. They were too chocolatey and too fudgy in texture, but these were just right. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!"

Double Layer Brownie Fudge

If you like it, you might also try this

"That's right -- brownies & fudge, at the same time! This amazing brownie recipe is so rich and so sweet. Make sure you cut the brownies into very small pieces - about 1" square, because not many people can handle a bigger piece! You can omit all of the nuts if you'd like; the recipe will still turn out. This is the ONLY brownie recipe my roomate will let me make; he's wild about the concept of a double layered brownie!" — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Marshmallow Brownies

If you like it, you might also try this

"An ooey gooey marshmallow layer is sandwiched between chocolatey frosting and a thick & fudgy brownie studded with milk chocolate chips. If you want to make them rocky road style just add one cup of walnuts or pecans to the brownies. SO much better than using a brownie mix!" — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs

A variation on this recipe

"If you love raw cookie dough, which I do, and chocolate (who doesn’t?), then this recipe is for you. These lil nuggets have a lot going on, but it all works well together and the flavors don't overpower each other. The cookie dough remains soft and gooey, while the chewy brownie provides the perfect blanket of rich chocolate" — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Very good classic brownie recipe. But it would be too thin in a 9X13 pan. We tried it, and scraped it all out and put it in a 9X9 brownie pan, and it was perfect. Also would be best either with chocolate chips in it, or with a chocolate glaze on top--or both!
