  1. would you just double the recipe for a 13×9 inch pan? I have 3 teens at home. 8×8 doesn’t seem worth the effort.

  2. i made these and must say, not so good. completely grainy. there was so much sugar that it wouldn’t dissolve during baking.

    when i bit in to the brownie, it was crunchy from the sugar. it needs more flour. i’m trying to find a way to alter this to make it acceptable because right now, you could give yourself diabetes with this one!
