My Mom used to make the best brownies in Texas! Oh my GOSH! They were soooooooooooooo good! All four of us kids loved her brownies so much! So I am going to share her recipe with all of you. (Here it is...they should be in the TEXAS hall of fame!!!) LOL!

Oh, these brownies brought back childhood memories. They reminded me of my grandmother's brownies. The buttermilk helps make these super moist. And that icing? Tops them off perfectly. So chocolaty, so moist and so good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
