Fantastic easy recipe - use the darkest and best plain chocolate possible and you will not be disapointed! Be careful not to cook over 25 mins as outside becomes a little hard. Delicious, easy, fast and my 3yr old was in heaven licking the spoon!

Squidgy and yummmmm. Next time I will add fruit/cherries for extra texture and flavour.

One of the easiest cakes I've made. Really yummy, chewy and gooey in the middle with a delightful crust on top. Added a small bag of crushed pecans and served warm with vanilla ice-cream. Will definitely make this again.

I made this for mother's day and its lovely. We have made it three times now and we never tire of it. I think it should have ten stars.

Had a brownie cook off with my DH and I won with this recipe, everyone thought it was fantastic. My sinks in the middle too but it just makes it gooey-er! Wish I had some right now!

I love this, if you leave it too cool and cut into little squares it makes them perfect to pick at as a snack. Brilliant and sticky!

Not sure if I would make this again. I wanted to try it as I am just a beginner baker and its very easy. I followed it exactly but was a little too sweet and wasnt as good as I imagined.

This was really good. I used Terry's chocolate orange instead of plain or milk chocolate and it went down a treat :)

My 10 year old daughter made this with her friend - it was easy to make and tasted so good we sent the recipe home with her!! Better than any shop brownie we have ever tasted - we didn't give it a chance to get cold!!!

This recipe came out great a bit hard round the edges but it tasted great and the texture was soft and chewy in the centre.
This was a fantastic reacipe for me to use in my platinum award in food technology. :D

Follow this recipe to the letter and you will not be disappointed!
A crunchie topping that hides lovely chewy gooey chocolate ;)

I am new to cooking. I made this recipe today. I found it so easy and they are the best brownies I have ever tried. Even if I do say so myself.
Honestly, they are better than any shop bought rubbish.

Just wanted to add, I made this again but used 80% cocoa chocolate - warning - don't! It didn't mix as nicely as plain and when cooked left a thick dark layer in middle and not gooey as usual :(

I've made chocolate brownie before but never as good as this! It was fab - making it again this morning to take to friends for New Year's Eve dinner. I'm going to add some of the left over Christmas 'After Eight' Mints to the top as it bakes to give it a minty taste - will report back next time!
