I have made all manner of brownies in the past. I even own cookbooks dedicated entirely to brownies. However -- I always come back to this very simple but delectable recipe!! I experiment all the time too. For my birthday this year, I added 2/3 of a cup of shredded desiccated coconut and half a cup of chopped hazelnuts. By the way, hazelnuts and chocolate are a match made in heaven! Combined with coconut, these brownies are outstanding!! Try other combinations too. Add pecans and finely grated orange zest; make a Rocky Road version with nuts, mini marshmallows and crushed shortbread or Oreo cookies; try adding a swirl of Nutella and coarsely chopped Maltesers!! The choices are endless!! Simply outstanding recipe!!!!

Awesome recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, including doubling the brownie batter for a 13 x 9 pan. Also increased cooking time to 30 minutes, checking with a toothpick every 2 minutes after 25 to come out clean with a few crumbs. Used walnuts on half by spreading half the batter, adding nuts, the covering with remaining batter. Also sprinkled some nuts on top for good measure. Very rich, fudgey sweet and chewy result. Superb.

Made these today, they are all gone. I never have luck with brownie recipes, no idea why, just never happy. These were fantastic, omitted the nuts and the frosting, just a preference thing. So happy to have found this recipe, thank you, thank you, thank you

Easy recipe! I don't think I'll ever make boxed brownies again!! I cooked for 15 minutes in an 8x8 pan which turned out perfect.

I made little brownie bites out of this batter and it worked very well.

These brownies were very easy to make and turned out delicious. Fudgy and not too sugary sweet. Didn't frost them. They don't need it. Kind of thin but we liked them that way. Not sure why a couple of reviewers said they were dry. Must have made them incorrectly. I will surely make them Again.
