    The family's favorite!! We will be using these for favors at my daughter's wedding. Use the Special Dark cocoa for extra chocolate flavor.

    I've made these brownies for almost twenty years—have never found anyone who does not love them. The name says it all!

    Finally a recipe that comes out the way my wife and I like it...CHEWY! The only thing we changed was omit the nuts and sprinkle coconut flakes. Perfect!
