This is amazing! Fixed my chocolate craving like a charm. I didn't have any vanilla extract so I used strawberry extract instead, that's the only modification I made. (: It came out of the oven not so long ago and my dad and I have already annhilated the hell out of it! Thanks for the great recipe!!


Wow, I just want to say that these are the most AMAZING brownies ever! I brought them to school for my friend's birthday and everyone thought I had stopped being vegan, because they are so rich and taste like "real" (in their words) brownies! I baked them for 25 minutes and they were perfect. Defenitely need a utensil to eat them with, though. SOOO GOOD!


Oh my goodness... I just took these out of the oven, they are just wonderful!  They're rich, gooey, comforting, tasty... they tasted like more... I had two.  :-[  Next time I think I may take them out of the oven just a little bit sooner, but even still they were delightfully delicious.


this was such a hit!!! it turned out exactly how i anticipated; all of my favorite dessert components into one. moist chocolate cake, crisp brownie crust, thick gooey hot fudge sauce. i followed the recipe exactly, but i did substitute oil for the applesauce (which makes the texture) i served this with scoops of so delicious chocolate velvet ice cream and poured the molten hot fudge all over. i think my favorite part was the leftover hot fudge! i will be making this again and again. (its also been requested!)


This was like a chocolate pudding without the butter! Second time it was over-cooked and I had to do half-carob half-cocoa


This was ok - very gooey  ;)b


I wasn't incredibly fond of this recipe. I did 'replace' some of the molasses into cane sugar for brown, and that had a bit to do with it. I definitely reccomend that the fudge isn't extracted from the recipe though. I warm this up with a spot of peanut butter and it does taste great.


I really liked the texture of these no-fat brownies and the gooey layer.  I tinkered with the recipe and decided to make brownie muffins.  Next time I will reduce the topping amount and increase the cocoa for the main brownie layer. 


This recipe seems to have  a lot of mixed reviews.  My kids whipped this up last night with a little help from me.....
One thought it was lick the plate delicious and the other hated it!  I personally thought it was pretty good and will definitely be making it again with some modifications to suit my own personal taste.

The fudge part was good and I loved how it turned out on the bottom!  However, I could really taste the brown sugar.  Next time I think I will try regular sugar instead.

The brownie part was very cakey.  Next time I will try more cocoa powder and maybe half the baking powder. 

Overall, it is good recipe and worth trying.


I was nervous, because I used very coarse w.w. flour and sucanat instead of most of the brown sugar ( my brown sugar had solidified and is in a glass jar ), but it's tasty! I think I added a little more cocoa than the recipe called for, but it's not bitter. Yum.
