These were very yummy and easy to make. I only used half of the chocolate and butter called for in the final layer as well. The only thing with doing this was you have to work quick to cover the top completely before the chocolate begins to get hard again.

I'm not one for brownie mix, so I made the brownies from scratch using Best Brownies. They turned out delicious, however I think the chocolate topping was too thick. I would recommend maybe using just 6oz of chocolate instead of 12, as it turned out to be like a half inch of chocolate. Between the chocolate, the icing, and the brownies, it was veerryy sweet. Really good and very festive though!
