Brownies Comparison

I would like to post two brownie recipes and have some critiques from you folks. There is one that I make regularly and one that we have recently tried. I'd like some opinions because I plan to jar them and use them for gifts this year. So, would anyone be willing to test both recipes and give me feedback?

OK, thanks guys. I am going to post them in the brownie section and then post links for them here. I currently have a cat in my lap so I don't want to disturb him but I will post both later today.

Here is one.

OK, I'd like to resurrect this thread. Anyone willing to make a couple batches of brownies and tell me which they liked better?

OK, weird thought...what do you think adding blueberries or cranberries to either of these would be like? I'm not talking craisins either, but the real deal.

Oooh, Alix. I like the idea of adding dried cranberries to the brownies. Not sure about blueberries and chocolate. I have a recipe that calls for maraschino cherries as part of the brownie ingredients, so why not add the cranberries? Could be yummy.

Blueberries are awesome in brownies! I came up with a recipe for "Blueberry Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate Brownies" that are so absolutely amazing. I'll type up the recipe and post it here for ya... :)
