Last night we tried out the Barefoot Contessa's Outrageous Brownies- and they certainly were outrageous with a pound of butter and more than a pound of chocolate. They were very rich brownies and definitely needed adequate time to cool, when they first came out they were very crumbly. They have a good flavor but they are rich enough that it would be hard to eat more than one, especially if you don't have milk or ice cream to go with them. The crumbly factor was not in its favor either. The directions said to tap the brownies against something half way through cooking, there was no way that was going to happen, they would have spilled all the way over if we had tried. Overall I would give these three stars because they had a good flavor but they are not my favorite.
