really gooey, probably a bit too sweet for me but goes down really well with everyone when I make them. Could easily reduce the sugar by a third, especially when using milk chocolate.

simple to make - but when they were done - it was awful taking them out of the pan as it just broke :( I may also cut down the sugar a little next time.

I made these for a dinner party and they were fab. Everyone raved about them. Thoroughly recommend.

Made this today and loved it. Easy to make, baked it for 30 minutes and it had the right amount of squidgy-ness in the middle, perfect.

Deliciously chewy and easy to make, even for beginners! They got eaten immediately! Maybe next time I'll try adding a bit less sugar.

Made these during the weekend, and they hardly lasted hours, and we were just two! This is, without doubt the absolute best brownie recipe I've ever tried. Making a new batch now, and hoping it will last over night as its a gift!

I have made this many times and it is a great recipe to make ahead and freeze! I take a piece from the freezer to put into childrens lunch boxes and by the time they eat it it's defrosted or let it defrost and then it can be warmed as a desert with cream or icecream. I have also made it in a square tin to cut into brownies.

Could this be made in advance (say a day) then reheated? I fancy doing it as an alternative Christmas pudding for the kids but don't fancy making it on the big day!

I have just made this. I checked it after 30 minutes and it was still very runny in the middle so I put it on for an extra 15 minutes. Looks and smells delicious though :p
