brownies that bring grown men to tears

When I find a little time to write, I’m pouring it into my novel these days. And it’s SO MUCH fun! Still, I want to keep up the blog, I have lots to say, photos to post. For a long time, I’ve intended to put all our favorite recipes on the blog just so my kids can find them whenever they want. So, I’ll start here, with one little recipe.

Honestly, it’s one of my best. And no, you do not need any baking soda or powder. The eggs do all the heavy lifting in this one.

brownies that bring grown men to tears (because you know you want the recipe)

Cream together.

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar

Then add:

1 cup cocoa
4 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1/4 cup milk

Mix well. Add
1 1/4 cups flour

and finally
2 cups chocolate chips

325° until cracks form on the surface.

For Xander’s birthday we added frosting and turned the brownies into a birthday cake. Enjoy!
