I know that we have already shared this recipe on our blog, but they are so good, they deserve a second post. Besides, I think that when we first posted them, our blog was just starting out and probably our only reader was our mom. 🙂
I had to put “Famous” in the title because our mom is seriously famous for these amazing brownies! When we were growing up, our mom would make these brownies all the time, but it was always for someone’s birthday or for a sick neighbor or for a friend . . . never for us! When mom did make a pan just for our family, it was always a special treat. And we could eat the whole pan in a matter of hours.
I now make these brownies quite a bit because they are easy and it makes a TON so they are perfect to share with neighbors or take to a potluck party!
Or, eat the whole pan if you feel like it. I won’t judge you. 🙂
