I was craving chocolate late one night, came on allrecipes.com and found this recipe. 25 minutes later I had brownies. But, I didn't have shortening, so I used oil. The oil was drenching them and driping down my fingers, so that wasn't a good choice! But I made them again today with butter instead of shortening, and used 1/4 c less butter than it called for (shortening), and doubled the recipe because last time they were very thin. These were excellent!!! They would be good with nuts. Maybe even chocolate chips because they are not very chocolatey. But so simple and they really did have a great flavor. Just don't use oil and use less butter/shortening than the recipe calls for.

If I could have given this recipe a zero star I would have. I really should have read the reviews before I made this. It is disgusting. These "brownies" are most like "whities" because of the color. There is too much shortening to flour and chocolate ratio. They taste awful.

When I think brownies, I think fudgey. These were anything but. They satisfied my sweet tooth, but left me yearning for chocolate...
