The basic recipe is about as good as it gets. Nothing fancy about it. Tastes great.



Very good and easy to whip up. I made these for a school bake sale and they turned out fantastic. They were a cake-like brownie. Tasty.



These are perfect! I have been looking for a good recipe since I lost my favorite one in a move. I keep the "basic cookie mix made" and they only take 5 minutes to mix and 25 minutes to bake. 30 minutes and you are done and they are the perfect texture and so chocolaty.
