Mom's Brownies - Our Kind of Wonderful

Mom’s Brownies

These are the brownies I grew up with, that everyone always requested my mom to make. These are her version of my grandpa’s brownies. He used to keep brownie scraps in the freezer for us when we’d come to visit, and we’d eat them so fast. They were AMAZING. He’d also make a fresh batch and sneak them to us, and his recipe is still served at my uncle’s wedding reception venue to this day. These brownies always make me think of my family, and bring back memories of when I was a kid, so they’re pretty special for me. Hopefully I can have something I make for my kids that can do the same for them.
