This brownie was delicious. I used pecans in the recipe and I think it made all the difference. I really wasn't that crazy about the frosting though. That was the only thing that kept me from giving this recipe 5 stars.

This is so good & easy! The only thing I did different was that I put the frosting on when it was still warm so the frosting melted and sprinkled the walnuts on top. This was the best brownie ever. My girls just love it! ;)

This was much better than the store bought kind and my kids made sure there were no leftovers! I'm making this one all the time now. It is easy to mix together and the kids can get involved. The directions are simple to follow and the smell of them baking in the oven is out of this world!

a winner

I made these for a bake sale we had. I put little candy coated chocolates on the top. They were the first things to go! I will definitely use these again.

This was a very easy recipe to make. It was nice because even my three year old daughter got to enjoy helping, especially the mixing. It was hard to keep her from licking the spatula (me too).

Frosted Fudge Brownie

My two and a half year old and I love making this simple recipe while her two older siblings are at school. When the boys get home the whole house smells of nice chocolate. The brownies are gobbled up in a flash.
