We went to a potluck last Sunday and our neighbor brought these brownies. He told us this recipe has taken him five years to perfect. I think the time payed off because these brownies are amazing! I am posting this recipe for your enjoyment and as a precaution for losing this recipe because if I lost it I would never forgive myself!! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
