Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me. John 14:6
This recipe was given to me years ago by a friend I worked with named Kay. It has been a family favorite ever since. I have them in the oven now. I also have the coffee brewing. I am anxiously awaiting them to get done.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
*I usually use walnuts, but you can use whatever kind you like or omit them if you don't like nuts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in pan while preheating oven. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Spread remainder of margarine in pan to grease pan. Bake 30 minutes.
Icing (if desired)
1/2 box confectioner's sugar
2 heaping tbsp cocoa
1/2 stick margarine or butter, melted
Directions: Mix all ingredients together. Spread over brownies while still warm in pan. Cool and cut into squares.
This is a nice refreshing cool dessert. By adding the fruit you up the nutritional value.
