Better than the Box Brownies

Every Sunday growing up I was in charge of making a dessert in the evening. It was normally brownies just out of the box. Our family LOVES brownies, especially the edge pieces!! We even have a special pan that all pieces have at least 2 side pieces. So since I was raised on gooey soft box brownies, I couldn’t stand it when people would make homemade brownies and they would be more like a cake than brownies. When I found this recipe, I knew it was a keeper!! If everyone would make these every Sunday, Mondays wouldn’t be so bad!
