Comment on this recipe

"I have been making this recipe for as long as I can remember and we were married 41 years on Sept. 26, 1999.

"Our family loves my brownies. There are 22 in my immediate family. They look forward to these every time. I'm sure it will be a favorite for years to come."

1 stick butter
4 tablespoons cocoa
5 tablespoons milk
