Brownies on Steroids

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by miss gracie

My friend Larry, a lover of all things dessert, declared these are the most outrageous brownies he has ever tasted and nicknamed them "brownies on steroids." They are more like candy than true brownies, and they disappear at our house faster than I can make them. I have heard they keep well, but they never seem to last long enough for me to find out!

Pretty darn good!. I don't know if I'd consider them brownies...more like 7-layer bars with a brownie crust. My only problem was with the crust...i had to add a little water(about 5 TBS)
