Trish Yearwood's Brownies

Who doesn't love a good brownie?

These certainly do the trick for a chocolate fix!

I found the recipe at the Cook book project. I didn't add the nuts as I made them for company and I wasn't sure if they liked nuts. We do, so next time I'll add them.

 They were rich and fudgy,and the frosting was SO creamy, I closed my eyes while I ate one, to savor every bite. 
They were so good!
