This easy recipe has been in our family for years. It is the most simple way to make brownies and they always come out delicious. As I’ve stated in the recipe, oven temps do vary, so you may have to watch them closely the first time you make them to get your temp and time down just right. After everyone tries these, they’ll be a favorite at your house just like they are at mine. The nuts are always optional, I’ve made them with or without. I’ve even added chocolate chips to them for those who really love chocolate. Of course, I’m speaking of myself.
