Oh my, what an amazing version of brownies. I made this for a celebratory occasion and they were inhaled by an appreciative crowd (6 people). I brought home two pieces and that was only because people were too embarrassed to take them all. Many thanks for a great recipe and a lovely reminder of TwisSis.

These are so chewy, moist and good! The frosting is delicious too. Once you have one you automatically head back to the dish for another. Saving it for future use!

I made these for dessert for our Irish dinner and they came out absolutely amazing! I loved the frosting! The only thing I did that deviated away from the recipe was to add 1 cup of walnuts. Mmmmmm mmm good!

TwisSis RIP Forever in our Kitchen

Made for the new FF&F Beverage Tag Game – I said it before & I’ll say it again. This recipe is a taste sensation! I was able to use a better sized baking pan this time, halved the amt of icing as noted in my prior Fooddotcom review & otherwise made the recipe as written. This is a special recipe, Lazy One, & I happily reminded myself just how special. I uploaded the same pic I posted at It was 1 of the few pics I posted yrs ago that I truly liked, so I sent it to the recipe’s new home where it belongs. :-)
