I followed the recipe for the most part but added a high quality baking bar melted in with the butter. I also cut the sugar down by 25% because the people I made these for font like overly sweet treats. Finally I used one half whole wheat

Not my favorite brownies. I decided to try these after reading the rave reviews. Who can refuse a delicious bite of chocolate? Mine turned out a little cakey for my taste and they didn't give me that rich and gooey chocolate I love in the box mixes. The only differentiation I made was to substitute a Splenda blend instead of the sugar. (added to qualify my review)
