This is a from-scratch recipe---and the best thing, you probably already have everything you need. It is very easy to make. These are NOT the cake-type brownies--and NOT the kind that will make you skinny. This will make fudgy brownies. I originally got this recipe from an online site, but can no longer locate it. I have modified it some for my personal tastes. So thanks to whoever published it first. It is very delicious and EASY to make. Despite the little amount of chocolate, these are VERY chocolaty.
