  3. holey cow these turned out so good

  4. Seriously the BEST brownies I have ever made, no joke!!

  5. These are so good! I doubled the recipe, baked it in a 9x13 pan for the full time. Didn't use the frosting and they still tasted amazing. Almost exactly like a classic packaged brownie mix.

  6. These were so good! Doubled the recipe and baked in a 9x13 pan for the full time. Didn't use the frosting and they were still awesome. Taste almost exactly like a classic boxed brownie mix.
