Very tasty and rich but dense and chewy. I will make them again but I'd like to find a way to lighten the brownies up a bit? - 25 Mar 2012

Absolutely fantastic recipe! Having read the comments and had difficulty getting the vegan choc chips, I simply replaced with melted vegan chocolate in the recipe then drizzled the finished brownies with melted chocolate- fantastic! So squishy too ! Xxx - 07 Nov 2015
