    these look like the perfect kind of brownie – fudgey with a crinkle top – beautiful picture, too!

    this recipe does sounds easy and quick! most good recipe do require lots of chocolate, or a couple of bowls. that's why I went for a brownie mix this weekend. I'll try this recipe for sure!!

    I just made these today and they're insanely fudgy!! I had trouble cutting into them. How did you get yours to look so neatly cut?

    I’ve just made it, and it does get crinkly, just the way I like it! However, I forgot the salt. I’m so sad… How could I have done that? Oh, well, I’ll remember next time. Thank you!

    I made these on a whim today and they are the best from-scratch brownies I have made! They were super easy, and they weren’t too cakey like most of the brownie recipes I have tried. They were fudgy and super rich.Yum!

    I love this recipe tessa! It’s 2:40 am in Pakistan right now and I just got done baking them!
    My 10 year old follows this recipe easily and has made these brownies 4 times! I’m not allowed in the kitchen when he’s in the mood to be independent!
    One question though, what is the reason for mixing with a wooden spoon and not an electric mixture?

      Wow, that’s awesome Saarah! Great question. Mixing with a wooden spoon instead of an electric mixer helps ensure the brownies stay chewy and rich, instead of light and cakey. An electric mixer would incorporate more air, causing that cake-like texture. Hope that helps :)
