I think this should be fairly easy, it doesn't sound harder than the box kind. I never knew brownies were so easy.

I normally do cold desserts, they are pretty hard to mess up!

They are very easy. Mix up all of the wet, add the dry and mix with a spoon!

They are done when they are crackled on top and start to pull away from the pan. I have a blog post about them too!

Brownies are one of my daughters favorite desserts. I think I will make them when she come back from Florida. After I make her pineapple upside down cake. Her ultimate favorite. Or maybe a custard pie. Or an apple pie. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Or even some fresh pasta for her family. I just found out that Kitchen Aid makes a fresh pasta thingy that pushes out different shapes. Oh dear, I see another attachement in my future.

The brownies and the peanut butter puppy poppers turned out great. I like leaving my desserts in the pan and just slicing off what I want and since I didn't use parchment paper or sprayed the pan they are sticking a bit.

Addie, I love love love pineapple upside down cake.

I just got the largest kitchen aide mixer off of Craigslist the other week because of making my own dog treats. I am also in a thing called "power of vitality" through my company and we earn points of taking care of ourselves. I got the meat grinder attachment and I am thinking about the pasta attachment. Heck, even if I only use it once a year I can't complain since all the attachments are free for me.

Glad you liked them! I like using the parchment to get them out and cutting them pretty. I also have coated, non-stick pans so I don't want to cut them up. Lots of people like cutting them right out of the pan that works too!

I think I am going have to make these soon, as there is so much talk around the forum of brownies right now, that I am getting cravings of the brownie variety

I used a Corningware pan. I can't get myself to use parchment paper for some reason. I have it but I don't like using it.

Kylie, make'm they are really good.

I shared a large piece with 3 guys at work and my Lead said he likes his more chocolately, the other guy said I did good considering I am a drunk baker (yes, I decided to have a few beers on Saturday) and the baker in our group said I did okay but couldn't tell me what I should have done differently!

I have a recipe for Man-Catcher Brownies that is out of this world chocolaty! It starts with melting 2 sticks of butter and adding 2 cups of cocoa powder. I'll dig it up and post it separately.

I think it is a just conspiracy to get you to keep practicing and sharing!
