I remember a time in my life when I was content to eat Brownies made from a box. I actually remember thinking, "what's the point of going through the trouble of making them from scratch when the box ones are so good?"
Well, I have now realized that crazy thinking was only because it had been so long since I had these. I couldn't count the number of times I helped my mom make these when I was growing up. She had the recipe memorized, which was a good thing because the actually recipe was faded so much it was illegible. Now I get to enjoy them with my kids. (My mom usually added walnuts to hers, but I hate nuts in them so I don't even know how much she added.)
