Mrs. T's Brownies

These are the brownies my mother made when baking Congo Bars.
They are the simplest, easiest and moistest brownies you will ever bake from scratch.
I won a blue ribbon with these at the county fair and everyone loves them.
~You can use cocoa is place of chocolate. It will not change the taste. I prefer using dutch processed cocoa. The flavor is so much better that regular cocoa.~
