Love this recipe. It's my go to recipe if I fancy something chocolate-y. I do, however, use milk chocolate over dark as it is too rich when using dark chocolate.

Amazing recipe - my brownies turned out really yummy - however I ended up making mixing all the ingredients together first and I used a rubber baking tray. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Made these today and am very pleased with the results. Like some other reviewers, I didn't add the topping as the brownie is already very rich. This is a good basic brownie recipe, with plenty of scope for jazzing it up with added nuts / dried fruit / choc chips. Rum soaked raisins spring to mind.....

Made these for my work colleagues & they went down a storm! Not sickly at all & even a colleague who does not like chocolate cake enjoyed these!

This was my first attempt at brownies and was encouraged by the reviews to give this a whirl. I halved the quantities and cooking time and still had more than enough for a lot of people. I used a cake tin but still had enough left over to make mini muffins brownies. It is very rich, as others have said the topping isn't really needed - unless of course you want to pre-book yourself into hospital for a coronary! Gorgeously gooey and very easy to make.

Absolutely gorgeous! I didn't do the extra topping, but they were great on their own. Took some into work, and have gone down very well. Will definitely make again. Five stars!!
