Recipe by Bec6206

You'll see how these are unique if you read the instructions! A recipe by Mary Burghardt from the "From the Governor's Pantry" cookbook, Lind House Association in New Ulm, Minnesota, July 1988. The book is dedicated to the many volunteers who had donated their time, talents and money to restore the John Lind home.

Top Review by HokiesMom

I'm so sorry but these were not a brownie that my family loved. The recipe is accurate in that everything turned out but we did not really enjoy the uniqueness of them. I know someone is out there who will love them - they just did not meet my family's tastes.
