Homemade Brownies

Years ago when I was a kid, I had a few neighborhood friends over one day. As we were talking we decided to make brownies. I began to get all of the ingredients out of the cupboard to make these homemade brownies, then one of the girls said, “Don’t you have a box of brownie mix?” I looked at her and said, “You can buy brownie mixes?” I always had made these homemade brownies with my mom, and I didn’t know you could buy it in a box (LOL). I’m not a fan of just any brownie because after growing up with these delicious brownies, they have become my favorite! Try them out, and you’ll see why.
