So, I finally got my brownies and was sooo excited. I made them and I followed the directions - it looked like it's supposed to, but I hated the taste. Just found it pretty much tasteless. What am I doing wrong?.

I haven't had that problem, but in the beginning I did think they smelled a bit eggy. However, I've been using coffee instead of plain water to make them lately. You could also add cayenne for a little heat/mexican brownie..

I couldnt tell you what you are doing wrng, but I love these but I have gotten burnt out on them lol,..

I cook mine for a min in mic, then put in freezer for like 20 mins! delish!.

I think we all just have different taste buds. We all won't like the same thing. I would try the cookie recipe. Use 2 Tab of water instead put on sprayed plate and cook for 1min 45 sec. I like them both ways. You can also use a condiment and take some cream cheese with a little splenda for a frosting. Good luck I hope you find a way to enjoy them..

I cook mine for 30 sec and then put in freezer for 30 min. Taste like fudge..

Comment #4

What are you doing wrong? Not waiting another month to try them again.

I was bothered by their weird taste at first, too. But now they're just fantastic any way I make them..

Comment #5

I add a splenda and substitute a T of WF chocolate surup for a T of water.

Comment #6

Awww poo, and I was really looking forward to my 4:00 brownie (first one)! Thanks everyone for the tips in case they aren't to my liking either!.

Comment #7

I don't add anything but water. I do add a little more water than is called for. I micro for 1 minute and cool for 5. That's it. You will get used to the taste and love them just like Freya said!.

Comment #8

I hated them at first too. I use more water than is called for. Then I microwave for 1 minute. They are now delicious and moist. In fact, I can't wait to get home to have one!.

Comment #9

I make them according to the package directions. I didn't like them much the first time I tried them, and the boxes I bought sat in the cabinet for 2 or 3 months. Then one day I decided to give them another shot,and loved them! You might decide in a few weeks they're great!.

Comment #10

I liked them from day one. I add a tablespoon of pb2 to it and swirl it in, follow directions as indicated..

Comment #11

I'm gonna go try freezing one now. I'm really excited about this!.

Normally I wait until I'm hungry to make it, but I can wait a while. yay!.

Comment #12

I didn't really like them at first either. I think it was because I had the idea that it was going to taste like a "real" brownie. Once I tossed that idea out the window and stuck it in the freezer for about 10 minutes, they became a favorite. In my experience, the colder they are, the better they taste. Good luck!.

Comment #13

I too got burned out on the brownies.... but have found a love for them as cookies..

Comment #14

I add 1/4 tsp baking powder to the brownie batter, cook and add spray butter. Eat it while it's hot and steaming, like a piece of cake right out of the oven. YUM..........

Comment #15

I don't think you're doing anything wrong. I'm one of those that never warmed up to the brownies...you may be, also. I, too, had high hopes, but I still don't like the taste, no matter what I do to doctor them up..

Comment #16

I don't mind themI had one last nightbut they aren't brownies. That was my problem initially, thinking they would be like an actual brownie, which they aren't. I won't order many more because I get more satisfaction out of the other foods, but they are nice when you want something to actually chew that isn't a bar. I may just eat the batter next time, since I prefer brownie batter to the baked thing any day.
