Delectable Maple Nut Chocolates Recipe

Delectable Maple Nut Chocolates Recipe

"This recipe goes back about 40 years. My father loved anything with maple flavoring, so my mother tweaked a brownie recipe to suit his tastes. She would be so happy to know her recipe is a runner up after all these years." –Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota
