It's the thought that counts though, right?!
Yes, you could call them brownies - but they don't have that flakey surface that I insist on in a brownie. (Just kidding! Call them brownies if you want to!)
But now that we're on the subject: if you want that flake, rather beat the sugar and eggs together until fluffy, then add the melted chocolate and butter followed by the rest of the ingredients. (Have I confused you?!)
And the mix would also make good muffins.
