    Great chewy, fudgy brownie IF you eliminate one egg, and add more cocoa (1/4 cup). No baking powder, or else it will rise too much like a cake. Not really deep dish, but just regular size thickness. And make it easy on yourself folks, this can be a one-bowl recipe. I just add all the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and slowly stir until it's all incorporated. Definitely increase cocoa and add 3 tablespoons sugar to compensate. I also used just 1/2 stick of butter and 1/4 cup applesauce and it was super moist and hopefully a smidge healthier. This is a really easy recipe and quick and fun to do with kids. Why use stuff from a box with all those preservatives when this is soooo easy. Bake no longer than 35 min in 8x8 square pan. Tip for all brownie recipes: grease only the bottom of your pan, not the sides to avoid burning or turning too crisp or dark on the sides of the brownies. With a few changes, this one is my master recipe.  -  27 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was pleased with these deep, dark, chocolatey, moist, fudgy brownies. Just for something fun and different I added quartered Oreos to the batter. When the brownies were nearly done I topped them with more crumbled Oreos and miniature marshmallows and popped them under the broiler for a minute or two until the marshmallows were melted and a light golden brown. To gild the lily even further I finished them with a drizzle of melted chocolate chips. It takes a good, reliable recipe to mess with it that much!  -  17 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    LOVE these brownies with my modifications: I only used 2 eggs and omitted the baking powder and I sprinkled chocolate chips on the top. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 9 x 13. These were everything a brownie should be - chewy, fudgy, wonderful! I will make these again and again! Thanks ! ***Update*** Just wanted to let you all know that I made these with baking Splenda and they did beautifully and tasted delicious! *Another Update* - It's been a longtime since I found this recipe, I make it all the time. The only thing I have changed is that we don't use choc chips anymore. This is still a major hit!  -  28 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
