This recipe makes a wonderfully rich and moist brownie. Aside from the taste and texture, what I like most about this recipe is its size. Since it's just my husband and me, most brownie recipes make way yonder too much. This one makes just enough for us to nibble on for a couple of days (maybe!) I hope y'all enjoy these yummy brownies!
