Fudgy Avocado Brownies

This is a recipe idea adapted from Martha Stewart I just made it quick and easy with this short cut recipe which is very moist and rich- I guess it's from the avocado and its oil. So do not over bake these lovely hide-in-the- corner so no one sees you eating them all.
They are quick and easy.
These never last at the church luncheon or dinner table dessert either.
