These are very moist brownies, I made them for a gift for Christmas, and they were a hit!!! I got this out of the Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Mine is a Better Homes & Gardens recipe and is packed away. These brownies are the easiest to make and I've been making them since 1981. The ingredients are simple and usually on hand. I made a double batch at 11pm last night...yummmy
