Broadway Brownies

Broadway Brownies

The kids love, love, love to make brownies. And eat them. Copious amounts of them.  While left to their own devices, these chocolaty pillows of pleasure would come from a box, but Mamma Bear often intrudes and encourages them "scratch it."

Here's what we came up with the other night. We dubbed them Broadway Brownies, because I was talking about my experience with Broadway in Bryant Park, and because after eating we decided they were Award Winning!
