Mom's Outrageous Brownies

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Janet Knowles

My mother found this recipe in the newpapers several years ago and claimed it as her own even though it was originally submitted by a woman named Lola Wohlford. I will give credit to both ladies here as the creators of a truly "outrageous" brownie.

Featured in my Book#237470. Originally reviewed on Oct. 15, 2008. A treasure! Signature heirloom quality! Outrageous that this has never been reviewed before. This is the exact recipe I have used for years that is inside the Dunn County Cookbook. The only difference is that I use walnuts and bake in a jelly roll pan that is 10 X 15 inches for 35 to 40 minutes. The icing is like fudge! In the Dunn County Cookbook 13 people contributed this recipe so it must be great! Thanks Janet Knowles for posting.
