The three-star rating is a rounded average from our family. The individual ratings were from 2, 2, 3, and 4 with the rating of 4 coming from the baby who tends to eat anything chocolate without much discrimination. I was looking for a brownie recipe. This one sounded good ("deep dish") and had a 4.5 star rating. I decided to try it without looking much at the reviews. Our batch came out notably dry. It tasted too floury and not enough chocolatey. The texture was more like a heavy cake than a fudgy, chewy brownie. I decided to read the reviews. (Yes, I also read instructions AFTER assembling my children's toys.) Well, then I see review after review saying basically, "Oh, these were wonderful. I just changed (followed by three to five recipe adjustments)." Jiminy! People, there are only 8 ingredients! Changing the amounts of three or more, or adding one or two new ones, amounts to some significant recipe changes. We followed the recipe as written. Collectively, our family rated it 2+ stars and then found another recipe to try.
