Every review, all 52 at the time I looked at this recipe, warned that the mix would rise over the top of a 9x9 pan, so I used a 13x9. Seemed as though there was not enough batter to reach all corners. While baking it did rise evenly, not too high, and after 30 minutes at 325 it started to pull away from the sides, so I removed it from the oven and sprinkled chopped pecans mixed with the second portion of semi-sweet chips to allow them to melt and stick together as a topping since I didn't add them in to the batter. We like frosted brownies so rather than a chocolate and sugar overdose I tried a different approach. Also, some reviews mentioned using different chips for peanut butter flavor so I used 2/3 cup crunchy peanut instead of butter. I also added a teaspoon of instant coffee to the water. One last touch was a sprinkle of sea salt on top of the melting topping based on the salted brownies recipe we love.
