Mrs. Quinn's Easy Brownies are the rich fudgy kind. If you bake them just a little longer, they won’t be as fudgy. Just be sure not to bake them too long or they will dry out.
- 3/4 cups butter
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder

- You can eat these plain or frost them with a nice chocolate buttercream. We like them plain, served warm, topped with ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
- Boozy Brownies: These are my next door, tea-totally, neighbor gets these brownies at least once a year for her birthday. It’s made with not one, but two different flavors of alcohol.
- Flavored Brownies: These brownies get their flavor from your choice of liqueur. My two favorite liqueurs to use with this recipe are: amaretto (almond flavored) or Kahlua (coffee flavored).
- Fudge Brownie Pie: Next time you want to make a dessert a little different, try this recipe. It’s a brownie batter bakes in a pie crust. Be sure to serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream. (Shh, don’t tell him, but I think this is the dessert that made my then future husband fall in love with me.)
