I've made this about a million times! I melt chocolate in the mircowave, so it is only 1 bowl to clean. I do some luncheons and it is usually one of the desserts that I include.

I have various versions of these, and this exact recipe, but I can never get the caramel quite right!

Love them

Everytime i've made these they were gone instantly and everyone said they were definately the best brownies they had ever had!

perfect recipe

Like another reviewer, I substituted pecans for the walnuts to give them more of a "turtle candy" taste. Although the aroma was good when they came out of the oven, by the next afternoon the chocolate *really* sang. I'll definitely make them again, but I'll plan to bake them a day ahead. The batch was just enough for 4 college kids. :)

Yummy stuff!!!

These brownies are not only yummy, they are easy to make in a short time. They are best warm, whether not quite cooled totally or microwaved for 10-15 seconds. I make them using 2-8" square pans for 20-22 minutes to make sure the middle cooks through. Hope you enjoy them as much as my family & co-workers did!

Best Brownies EVER

I make these brownies all the time and everyone loves them. They are so easy to make and they taste great. I'll never make brownies from a box again!

I made these brownies for my niece and her family. These were excellent. They did not last long. I will have to make a double or triple batch next time. My great nephews already requested them for their goody box when they go off to college. Thanks for the great recipe.

AWESOME!!!

These brownies were excellent! I used pecans instead of walnuts though! I originally made a batch for one of my son's friends as a thank-you for being a "taxi" everyday, and had to make more for my family!
