This has been a recipe in our family since before the turn of the century. I am 70, so you can imagine when it started to get down to my sister and me. Now my grand-nephew enjoys them. Keep under lock and key, or they will disappear in a trice!

Perfection... After reading several recipes and reviews I decided to try this one because it was the first recipe I'd ever seen that uses brown sugar. I was skeptical so I used 1 cup brown and 1 cup white sugar to be safe. I was out of butter so I used margarine instead. I also added two tablespoons of Dutch Cocoa and a splash of cold coffee for an extra kick. I was leary about the temp so I used 350 degrees and baked for 30 mins using a 9 by 11 in. pan. I discovered this is the identical recipe as Baker's and Hershey's (on the unsweetened chocolate box) with the exception of the brown sugar. For the first time in my life I had perfect brownies! I will never use a mix again. These took some time but they were worth it, absolutely perfect! Gooey inside and crispy outside just the way a perfect brownie should be. One day I will try the recipe in it's orginal form. I can't wait for my kids to try these. I am topping them with homemade chocolate frosting and m&m's at their request!

Turned out great (gooey and fudgy) with a few modifications. First, I didn't have choc squares so I had to use the cocoa powder/butter ratio on the back of the Hershey's box (I picked this recipe because several reviewers mentioned success with this). Second, I couldn't help myself, I added a dash of clove. Third, I used roasted walnuts, and a small handful of semisweet chocolate chips. Fourth, I cooked it for 60 mins at 250, then turned the temp up to 300 for another 20 mins, and they were perfect. I think it is important to have a glass pan. Glass and metal cook very differently!

Followed recipe to an art except that I changed the baking temp to 350 and baking time to 30 minutes. I also used a glass baking dish. EXCELLENT! VERY SOFT!
