Homemade Brownie Recipe

Homemade Brownie Recipe

To me, a brownie recipe isn’t a brownie recipe unless it includes frosting! Even though these don’t, I surprisingly still enjoy them anyway.

My husband is the giant brownies fan in the house. He likes the edge servings and I like the insides, so it works out very well!

These came out of a cookbook that I really enjoy: Bar Cookie Bonanza, a 1982 Reiman Publications book. I just love it!
