My homemade brownies are the best. They are not dark chocolate, but rather a medium chocolatey taste, and they are not gooey; they have a wonderful texture, slightly chewy but not overly so, and they form a delicious crusty edge. I wrote a hub about them. I've had the recipe so long (over 50 years), I've forgotten where I got it. My brownies are always a hit and often requested by friends at potluck get-togethers. They are especially yummy with vanilla ice cream on top. A person could add whatever they wish to the basic recipe -- walnuts, pecans, cherries (yum). Best of all, the recipe is super easy to make and most people already have the ingredients in their pantry.
