    Been a long time for me making a brownie. This recipe is good hot or cold. It crumbles less when cold. Heat from brownies was barely enough to melt the frosting just enough to make it spreadable. I would still like to put a little more fluid in the frosting next time.

    Frosting is oh so thick. Barely got it all to come together. Might need just a little more fluid.

    I made these last night and they turned out great! I love that they are so easy with simple ingredients. They were so good that I didn't even make the frosting. They don't need it.

    I must say that I tried the brownies later and they were better than I thought- I must have been all sugared out when I first tried them

    Good recipe, but a little too sweet for me. Next time I'll leave out some of the sugar :) The frosting is awesome

    To be honest. I really didn't like this recipe. I thought I would try it because of the rave reviews, but mine turned out like tar or bricks each time, and I made 4 batches, just to see what was going on. I tried them in 3 different pans; glass pyrex, my stoneware square dish and a metal one.

    This is an awesome recipe. I haven't tried the frosting yet. I just made them plain, and they were just delicious. My husband just raved over them. And it was such a simple recipe. Soooo easy! Thanks for sharing!
