Simply Fudgy Brownies

I don't know where I got this recipe, but I've had it for over 30 years - it's written on an old yellow piece of paper. Adding chocolate chips was my idea. When my children were in school, I found out they were selling these brownies to their friends! -Marjorie Hoyt, Center Conway, New Hampshire

    I have been making these brownies forever. I got the recipe in a advertisement for the magazine. It took me a while to become a subscriber but everyone asks for the recipe every time I bring them.

    Like the names says, it is really simple to make. I used sunflower oil, since I never buy canola oil, and I was IN HEAVEN, when I tasted it. It's like out of this world!!!

    Very sticky batter. Shiny top. Not TOO fudgy.
