    I like cashews in brownies (or almonds) not fond of walnuts or pecans.

    My sister hates all nuts (including peanuts) so my mother would add corn flakes or rice krispy cereal to brownies (and cookies). Could be because I grew up with this, but these are good alsol.

    I am making these brownies right now (with no nuts)

    Great recipe, thanks for sharing! Simple ingredients I had on hand made for a fabulous Sunday evening dessert. I made two slight alterations by increasing the vanilla by 1/4 tsp. (I always use the Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract) and needed to add a bit more powdered sugar for thickening of the frosting. To please the palate of all in my family, I added the walnuts to half the pan and gently pressed them in with fork. Loved by all!!

      If you watch the video again, you will hear them say to add one and a half cups of powdered sugar, not the one-half cup listed in the frosting recipe, Without the extra cup, the frosting is very watery.

    This weekend, Feb. 18, Matt Brickman wanted people to submit names of independent Baristas, he said no Caribou and Starbucks. I CANNOT find this anywhere on your site.
    Thank you,
