Great recipe, Member alwaysabaker

The recipe was easy to make and I liked that most people will have the ingredients in their kitchen. The only caveat was that the cooking time took an extra 20 minutes. I added 1/4 c of applesauce to ensure the brownies would be moist. Following the instructions on the icing, your icing will be thick. It helped me to heat it a bit before adding to the warm brownies. I thought the icing was too sweet. Next time, I would cut the sugar in half. My family didn't like the gooey brownie. They prefer more cake like. I don't think I'll make the recipe again. Brownie is headed in the trash :(
