Wedding Present Brownies


Rosie stuffed this hand written recipe card into a healthy eating cookbook she gifted me as a wedding present twenty four years ago,”For when you’re not counting calories”.  Apparently marriage seriously distracted me from calorie counting, cause I bet I’ve baked a bazillion batches of these fudge like brownies!  All five of my children can stir these up by heart as well- they enjoyed introducing new friends all around the world to Wedding Present Brownies.  This is my favorite brownie recipe because it uses simple ingredients, whips up in under 5 minutes and only uses one pan.  You will never need a mix again!!!

  •  Melt together on low heat
    • 1 cup butter
