    Proud Veteran's wife's Note:

    This recipe I got from Five Star Classics (the essential guide to cooking with gourmet cheese vol 1) it was a free little book from Albertsons. I really loved the recipes in it so thought I would post and share them here! This is a very versatile recipe that has 4 different ways you can make the brownies. Hope you enjoy!
