  1. My mom, (Vilo Westwood) used to make these about once a year, traditionally in the coldest part of the winter. I remember coming home from freezing days of sledding, hands numb and raw from cold, to a warm house full of the smell of butter. YUM!

  2. I have a recpie! I don't know what to do after saying I have one so I'll write it here and you may do whatever you want with it!!!

    Man-D's Freakishly amazing Brownies to take to elderly and friends and elderly friends

    1st! take your favorite brownie recipe.
    2nd! turn on classic rock (why?! cause that's what you do when you cook silly) (for the younger generation, classic rock= queen, the police, the cars, ect. anything between about the 60s-90s)
    3rd! make the recipe, WHILE singing along to the class rock (If you don't know the words, LEARN THEM! and that just goes to show you ought to cook more)
    4th! add in Chocolate chips! (I add in mint, butterscotch, white and regular, but whatever floats your boat.)
    5th! BAKE THEM! (this is one of the more important steps)
    6th! take them OUT of the oven (again, freakishly important)
    8th! cut them and then put them on paper plates and put plastic over them (don't forget to save some for yourself)
    9th! make sure you have the car keys! (this was a problem yesterday)
    10th! make sure it is a reasonable time to deliver brownies
    11th! deliver brownies
    12th! enjoy the brownies you made for yourself when you get home (unless your family ate them all while you were delivering like mine did) and also enjoy the feeling of helping others!

    And that is what I do when I make brownies!
