Did someone say…..brownies???

Told ya I would make sure to stay up on my posting this time. Helps when I tell the husband to go away or put him in the living room with a plate of food and a couple of sodas with the remote in hand….

Thankfully, as a result, I was able to make up a recipe that I have been wanting to trying for a long time. Lunch Lady Brownies!!!!

Sound delicious right?

I found this recipe by accident among my husband’s grandma’s cookbooks and thought that it sounded simply irresistible. Little did I know it would be years before I finally got round to trying it, but hey, who’s counting….

So story behind this recipe is that it came from a former lunch lady that used to make it for school lunches. Not sure how long ago its from as everything comes frozen or prepackaged now, but supposedly these are the best brownies you will ever taste.

I decided to make up a batch for Easter dinner with hopes of leftovers to bring in for the Group at work. To say they were a hit would be an underestimation of their favorability. Not trying to brush off my own shoulders, but these brownies seriously rocked the socks off everyone who ate them. I’m already getting requests to make them again….

  1. Oh man, so much chocolate! I love it. Back in the day, I always thought I didn’t really like brownies, until I realized that I’d never had a REAL brownie. Since then I’m obsessed. Loving the simplicity of this recipe. Anything that can be made in under an hour i’m a fan of making haha.
