World's Best Brownies

These brownies will blow your ever-living mind.  At least I hope they will.   We have had this recipe in the family for years and they are always a favorite.  I love them cold, my husband loves them warm with ice cream.   I'm not going to judge a guy for the way he takes his brownie.

These also freeze super well.    We used to make them for big women's retreats, baking them a few days early and sticking them in the freezer so they were ready to go.   Cut them when they are cold or almost thawed and they will make perfect squares.


Great for a potluck, family night or really any occasion, these brownies are one dessert recipe you will want to keep handy.
