Best Homemade Brownies

I had a house full of boys last weekend and all they wanted were brownies.  I pulled out my favorite all time BEST homemade brownie recipe.  I haven’t made them in forever and, now I know why, they ruined my diet! I think I ate more than the boys.  Actually, I know I did.  I loved every.. single .. bite.  I have never been so happy to cheat on my diet and I had a large ice cold glass of milk to go with them.  Yum!

For a little Friday fun, check out the first time I posted this recipe (4 years, almost to the week, ago!) and see how different things were back then.  It is so cool to look back and see how I was blogging and taking pictures .. things sure have changed around here..
