Chunky Chocolate Brownies

    Wow..I realize I am not a baker, but I cannot figure out what I did wrong here and why my review differs so much from others. These never did set up -- I kept checking them and having to put them back in. Even after sitting overnight, they still were almost like a thick frosting consistency -- there was no cutting them into squares. I ended up throwing the whole pan out (and I have two children, mind you, so this illustrates how truly bad they were!)

    These brownies were super easy and amazingly chocolately! A major hit at a super bowl party. I used macadamia nuts. Delicious!

    I have a recipe that my son calls "mom's world famous brownies". I decided to make these for a party in addition to the other brownies which I make for every party. Several guests said this brownie was excellent and rivaled the old standard.

    These were fantastic. I subbed coconut oil for the butter and did not add nuts, and they were so moist and fudge like. I was a little concerned after adding the chocolate to the sugar mixture since it looked weird, but as soon as I added the eggs it became smooth. I will certainly make these again.

    Wonderful Brownies! I agree that you should add the flour mixture first and then the chocolate chunks. I didn't read that review. Therefore, I added together and the chunks melted. However, the Brownies still tasted great!

    This recipe is a keeper! I will never go back to boxed brownies again! One thing I will change next time is not adding in the extra chocolate chunks, they were a little too much for me. Other than that, Great, easy recipe with ingredients I usually always have on hand!

    This is a good recipe, not too sweet and can be modified. We added marshmallows and pecans and omitted the powdered sugar. Also made with splenda. They turned out great.

    Good brownie. Easy to make. Would like it to be more cakey.

    These brownies are scrumptious, and I love the fact that since I'm making these from scratch I know exactly what's going into them. These are very easy and delicious, so I probably won't be making boxed brownies anymore.

    I will never buy a boxed brownie mix again. This is so easy and delicious. I want to try it next served warm with vanilla ice cream. I don't bother with the powdered sugar. You won't even miss it!

    Fudgey, easy, excellent. They even get the flaky outer crust like the boxed variety, but are much richer. Loved them.

    I have finally found a go-to brownie recipe. Easy and delicious. I used toasted pecans..yum, yum.

    Very, very yummy. I undercooked them and had to put them back in the oven after it became apparent that the brownies weren't going to harden much more on their own. After the 2nd bake (only 5 more minutes), I cooled them, then cut them and they were perfect. Used pecans instead of hazelnuts because that's what I had. My husband said they would have been better without the powdered sugar, but that they were delicious. He's very picky when it comes to brownies. He liked the gooey middle pieces, I like the firmer edge pieces. This was my first time making brownies - they were so easy!

    I substituted 1/2-c honey for the sugar, added 2 tsp ancho chili pepper, more pecans, baked at the long end of things, and served with berries. Not bad, but chunk-free since those had a meltdown.

    After I put the brownies in the oven, I tasted the remaining batter in the pan. It was soooo good, I thought, how can this not be the best batch of brownies ever? I brought them out after 28 minutes and let them cool. Cutting into them now, I found, as other reviewers stated, they are more soupy than brownie. So I poured myself a square, ate/drank it, and put the baking pan in the microwave for 2.22. It now looks like a hot mess, but it did set up. I'll try this again, but I'll have to cook it longer next time. The flavor is great, but it doesn't work using the cooking time provided. Now I'm wondering if this would have gone better had I used the convection oven setting. Has anyone made these using their convection oven, and it worked out?
