I found this to be a solid 4 star recipe. Batch # 1 had me thinking it didn't need the frosting- the brownies were perfectly, mouth-wateringly fudgy and delicious, (I baked them for about 23 minutes & they seemed the perfect chewy consistency) It didn't SEEM like there was a need for frosting, and the frosting was too clumpy to adequately spread, so I just kind of lopped it on there the best I could. HOWEVER, there were nowhere near 16 servings. I could barely cut them into 8 fair slices for guests, so I made Batch #2, and omitted the frosting. I baked batch #2 for the full 25 minutes, and they came out much more cake-like and less tasty (to me) and I didn't have time to do the frosting, which these definitely needed. So, my recommendation is- under-cook them just slightly, and use the frosting, even if it is a bit unsightly. I found myself going back to Batch #1 and having to slap my own hands not to eat all of them!
