    This chocoholic's favorite brownie. The recipe was shared with me by an ex-MIL over 25 years ago. Good recipes, unlike marriages, never die.

      This recipe deserves some recognition - its absolutely fantastic. I followed the recipe as is. It has a rich, super-chocolately flavor that is kind of unique. Can't describe the uniqueness. I'm thinking it might come from the buttermilk? The frosting is an absolute must - its a definitely a necessary component because it seems to partially melt into the cake itself. Anyways, its guaranteed to satisfy any chocolate craving - no matter how wild it may be.
