Granny's Brownies


"This has been a recipe in our family since before the turn of the century. I am 70, so you can imagine when it started to get down to my sister and me. Now my grand-nephew enjoys them. Keep under lock and key, or they will disappear in a trice!"

Perfection... After reading several recipes and reviews I decided to try this one because it was the first recipe I'd ever seen that uses brown sugar. I was skeptical so I used 1 cup brown and 1...

Turned out great (gooey and fudgy) with a few modifications. First, I didn't have choc squares so I had to use the cocoa powder/butter ratio on the back of the Hershey's box (I picked this recip...
