  1. I have sent your recipe on to my daughter, the family brownie maker. She makes brownies at least once a week, her oldest is a huge brownie fan. I am blessed that everytime she comes for a visit she brings a nice fresh plate of beautiful brownies. This will let her change it up a bit and also give a good hint, that I would like some brownies, please.
