These brownies had a good taste and the icing was very good also. Unfortunately my brownies were accidentally overbaked by about 10-15 minutes so they ended up extremely cakey and sort of dry. I might try these again though and hopefully my timer won't fail again, because I did like the taste. To be honest, I did not add the black pepper because I was a bit skeptical. I thought they were quite tasty without the pepper. The frosting, as I said, was tasty (very chocolatey) and had a nice texture when cooled, very smooth but not sticky so these brownies packed well. I did not taste the Kahlua as much as I had expected. Of course the alcohol baked out of the brownies, especially since I overbaked them. The Kahlua added an interesting flavor, but people who sampled the recipe said it wasn't strong enough that they would identify the flavor as Kahlua. If you really want to have a Kahlua flavor, better add some extra. And if you want fudgy, DO NOT OVERBAKE! I was disappointed with the cakiness due to my own mistake. I may have to try again, bake correctly, and re-rate if the fudginess pushes these to a 5-star recipe.
These brownies were very tasty. The frosting definitely makes them. They are very cake-like rather than the fudgie type brownie I prefer. I started to check on these after 20 minutes and took them out after 23 minutes and they ended up a little dry.
Delicious! I follwed the recipe exactly, but left out the nuts (not a big fan of nuts). These are easy enough and so yummy!
These are fabulous by simply following the recipe! They are rich, but not too chocolatey gooey brownie. Be very careful not to overbake--mine were ready right at 25 minutes. The only thing I had to change was to decrease the amount of powdered sugar in the frosting--2 c. would have made a VERY thick (probably unspreadable) frosting. I started out with about a cup and that ended up being the right amount. These could definitely handle a larger dose of Kahlua if you want to taste it.
I love these brownies. They are nice and moist and not too sweet. I love that you can taste a hint of the Kahlua in the icing. Way better than brownies from a box!
Wonderful recipe! The frosting is completely unnecessary--I didn't have powdered sugar, so left the brownies "as is," and they were fantastic. I would add more Kahlua next time, to make the flavor more pronounced.
These are okay, but definitely not one of the best brownie recipes I've tried. For a brownie called "double fudge", they were awfully cake-like, even though I only baked 25 minutes. The taste was still fine, but nothing exceptional, and no one who tried them could tell they were supposed to be Kahlua brownies. The frosting was pretty good, a tad on the sweet side, so I definitely wouldn't use the full 2 cups of powdered sugar! But it's good if you like frosted brownies.
these were the best brownies I have ever tasted! They were a hit for Thanksgiving!
