Notes

These are the most decadent brownies I have ever eaten. I have had the recipe for a number of years and have modified it several times to come up with this wonderful decadent brownie. It takes a lot of time to make but the results are really worth it. I have served these at a formal dinner for dessert to rave reviews.
