county fair brownies

Recipe by

I made this recipe when I was a child. It was from a child’s picture cookbook my mother got for me. Everyone loved them. I got a blue ribbon them when I entered them in the County Fair as a 4-H entry. It became the recipe I taught for 4-H because of the steps and the substitution requirement ( baking chocolate in the original recipe to coco).
