This brownie is nice and moist, but the mix is very thick. But it is worth it if you melt some chocolate chips on it as soon as it comes out of the oven.These go great warm with a scoop of ice cream!!

These Were SOOO Good!!

I made these using the Extra Creamy chocolate hearts instead of the butterfinger hearts for valentines day and they were delicious! Everyone loved them and I had to make five more batches because so many people wanted some more after trying them.

Absolutely loved these bars or cake. One complaint, I wish it would have made a bigger batch, cause they don't last long.

I used the Nestle dark chocolate Jingles, and added the zest of 1 orange to the batter, and cooked them at 350F. for 18 minutes. These were very rich, and we felt they would have been better if the bells had been cut in smaller pieces, and more evenly dispersed throughout the batter.
