This was my mom's recipe for brownies. She made them for every family get together. They were gone even before they hit the table! She was a home ec teacher and this was a recipe she used to test following directions. Use a wooden spoon as the directions indicate. I am just saying!!! She always said the kids that used a mixer never had them turn out. These make a great hot fudge brownie sundae!
