ultimate brownies

My thing is baking so when I need to send something somewhere that is my first choice. My son is on a team where everyone brings a dish to share on long days of competition. He took these brownies and in less than 5 minutes of being there they were devoured. I also made some for home and had trouble sharing they were so addictive.
