I pinched this recipe from a friend back in 1998! I have baked it ever since. I know Americans are experts at baking brownies - but I find this a simple delicious brownie - and the fudge sauce is delicious! I chop in pecan nuts and pieces of chocolate for an extra chocolaty taste. Its best to cut the brownies into squares and then pour on the fudge sauce. A brownie smothered in fudge sauce mmmmm
