“Very good brownies. These take about 15 minutes to prepare and 30-35 minutes baking. I found this recipe in a Betty Crocker cook book printed in 1976. BAKING TIPS: For light, moist brownies, cool chocolate mixture completely before combining it with other ingredients; test for doneness 2 to 3 minutes before the suggested baking time.”
