Personal Notes:
I've actually been paid $$ for these brownies. I found the original recipe in a Food and Wine cookbook and have tweaked it. It's a great brownie recipe. Be creative with it... I even put caramel kisses on the top once it came out of the oven -- let them melt a bit and then spread around for a fun 'frosting'.
