    Delicious.. I added the glaze to some.. not to all of them. Was good both ways. Net time I think I'll add some cinnamon  -  01 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were superb! As moist as any 'typical brownie'. I stuck by the recipe for the brownies, however...I added brown sugar to the glaze to make it caramel. By placing butter, dark brown sugar, and evaporated milk in a saucepan, I let it come to a medium boil for about 3 minutes. Then, beat it into the confectionery sugar and added the vanilla. Made it for a group of 40 and they all loved it!  -  29 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I highly recommend this one. It's so moist and flavorful. I made it and it was all gone in a day. I'll make it again for our family reunion this weekend and I expect grand reviews even there, with my bohemian dessert making aunts...  -  06 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
