"This recipe is great! You can double it to make more, using a bigger pan. My family just loves them. It is a regular dessert is our home! The brownies just melt in your mouth! Adding peanut butter to the batter really brings out the fudge taste!" — TERESA VANNATTA

unsweetened cocoa powder
These were the best brownies I have ever made. I gave them four stars due to some changes.... 1 cup sugar because some said they needed to be sweeter. 1 egg rather than 2 because that made them fudgier, and 1/4 cup p-butter to compensate for the lack of one of the eggs. Also, I used dark choc cocoa because that is what I had. They turned out very fudgy and dark and tasty. By the way, the batter was very thick like cookie dough.
We are a group of grade 10 students in a foods class, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, Canada. Our class tried out many different brownie recipes and our group was assigned this one. They tasted really good and didn't take long to make. Instead of baking a double batch, we just baked a single batch. We agree that it should be two batches because it's really small. Chocolate chips would be a good additional ingredient just to sweeten the brownies a little more. We chose not to add peanut butter to the recipe because we thought it would ruin the taste. The recipe was very delicious but we have made a few minor suggestions for next time. Thanks!

A okay recipe, but not nearly as good as other brownies. Too bland, and there was not enough chocolate. I think that adding a cup of chocolate chips and doubling or tripling the peanut butter would help make this recipe shine.
These are excellent. We were laying around last night I decided that I wanted to make something with my 2 yr old. Well I came on to ALLRECIPES.COM and looked for brownies. I found these luckily. (We were out of butter and milk) And decided to make them. I made a double batch. These are really great because they are not over sweet!!! I made the double batch less than 12 hours ago and they are gone. There are only three of us living in the household!!!! Try these and you will love them. This recipe has broken me from ever buying store bought again!!!! Congrats!!!!
Man, these were DEFINATELY not what I was craving. If you like cake-type brownies, then these may be up your alley. I thought they were WAAAAY to thick. I doubled the batch as suggested by others, I even added a little extra oil, just in case and removed them from the oven earlier than suggested. The batter was extremely thick, which should have warned me, but I thought I would give the recipe the benefit of the doubt.
I made a double batch of peanut butter frosting, which was the best part.
I was very disappointed and wasted a lot of ingredients.
My husband took one bite, made a face and put it back on his plate. He loves "cake style" brownies, but these ruined it for him.
My reccomendation, try another recipe, don't bother trying to tweak this one.
Not a recipe I would pass on. Too dry, and not very sweet or chocolatey.
I used 1 cup sugar and substituted the peanut butter for chocolate chips and they were great! The top was a little crunchy and they were super gooey inside. I also used a 8x8 dish. My kids loved them!
I followed the original recipe and instead of peanut butter I added Nutella. It was really good! The is a great simple recipe for brownies that is easily adjustable to tastes.
