Our Favorite Brownies

This is the most requested recipe in our house. As soon as they are cool, everyone starts hanging out hoping to eat a few. The fat and calories in the brownies have helped our son with CF to gain weight without a problem. Many friends have requested the recipe and I continue to bake them for company who always love them.
