Saturday baking ... brownie time!


I needed a quick chocolate fix for my husband, brother-in-law and I for our Saturday get together to play video games and watch some TV. This hit the spot and might just be my new "go to" brownie recipe. It was so tasty and moist, that I didn't bother to make the frosting part of the recipe!
