When my grandchildren were young, sometimes I'd pick them up to spend the day with me and we would always make these wonderful brownies. They're all teenagers now, but they still remember these brownies and ask me to make them when I'm in town. These brownies also dissappear rapidly at bake sales and pot luck dinners and I've never found a mix that was anywhere near as good. This recipe has created some wonderful memories that I will always treasure. I'm happy to share this recipe with you all and hope you create some special memories, too!
