Recipe by BigFatMomma

Dated 6/21/78, this is a victory for my mother, since no one else got the famed brownie recipe. These are amazing. They must be done by hand in order to insure the proper texture. Just think, you’re pre-emotively burning calories!

These were awesome! Nice and fudgy. Easy to prepare. Made without nuts for a friend who raved about them. I will make these again, with nuts for my DH, who gave this recipe his stamp of approval.
