“This is a recipe from my New Orleans days. If you like fudgy brownies, you've come to the right place. These are outrageous. You MUST keep them in the refrigerator. The recipe comes from my Aunt Susan who passed away years ago. My Cousin Doug named it "Moment of Silence" to commemorate her and her wonderful recipe. It's not overly sweet (like Aunt Susan), so you can add up to 1/4 cup more sugar if you like a sweeter brownie.”
