~ Katy ~ Ah, the Million Dollar Brownies. As a kid, I couldn’t get enough sugar, and sugar in chocolate form was (and still usually is) my sugar-high of choice. This recipe was in one of Mom’s favorite cookbooks, so I gave it a go and never stopped making them. In fact, the frosting was so delicious that I would secretly make batches of it and hide in the bathroom (the only rooms with locks on them) to eat it by myself–a major feat with 8 people in the house.
Cider mills , apples , cinnamon, doughnuts , sweaters, jeans, boots, leaves, football, tailgate parties , pies , soups , stews , chili ...those are what come to mind when I think of fall. The air turns nice and crisp and I am immediately reminded of fall in Michigan, with all of the beautiful leaves and the perfect weather to leave the house wearing jeans, a sweater, cute boots and a scarf. My all-time favorite outfit. Another item that always comes to mind when I think of fall always puts a huge smile on my face. As soon as the first of October arrives, I immediately take out my fall decor from the storage closet and begin placing these beautiful little gems all around the house.

Happy Valentine’s Day, chocolate lovers!! You can do one of two things with this recipe: a) Make these brownies for your sweetie, as a lovely dessert to top off your romantic Valentine’s day dinner. b) Make these brownies for yourself, as a way to celebrate the fact that Valentine’s day sucks. I’ll be going with option B.
