My Mom had me make these when I was a teenager in the seventies, they are so yummy! I'm going to make them tomorrow.

These are a Christmas family tradition that my mother started 30 years ago for us! I love these decadent treats! They are especially good heated and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Very much worth the work.

I have been making these for years... They are wonderful and worth the effort. I have made them so many times, it is very easy now! I am constantly asked for the recipe. They are great for special occasions and look especially nice cut on a tray. They are rich and different, so much better than ordinary brownies... Try them once and you will be hooked....

I have been making this recipe since I first saw it in the Pillsbury Bake Off Cookbook in 1972. My husband asks for it every year for his birthday and for other special occasions. It is our all time favorite, and once you get the hang of it, very easy to prepare. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the recipe for you !

If you leave out the nuts, it's just as good. And a hint, if you half all of the ingredients and cook in an 8x8 pan, it works beautifully. My boyfriend is a huge chocolate marshmallow fan, and he DIED over this one.

A family favorite since the '70's. One time, trying to make an impression on those we were meeting, I made these wonderful bars. At that time my young son already wore a "really big shoe". Yes, on the long car ride he moved his feet and stepped on the foil covered plate. Not so pretty any more but every little flat bar was enjoyed by all!

I have made this receipe for at least 25 years, mostly at Christmas. My family says it isn't Christmas without them...well this year I just couldn't stretch my time enough to get them made...yes, they were missed, especially by my military son. So thank goodness Valentines isn't that far away and I'm going to surprise everyone with a batch!

This recipe has been a family tradition since 1977. No Christmas holiday is complete without several batches. (The very first cookbook I purchased after my marriage was a Pillsbury Classics and this was one of the first recipes to be tried. How I wish I could get my hands on that cookbook as mine is completely disintegrated!)

I have been making this recipe for years, and love sharing them with friends and family as well. I have shared this recipe with co-workers, friends and family members. Very sweet, but I cut my bars on the smaller size. Everyone always comes back for seconds! I am not big on sifting the powdered sugar so after I have heated the frosting, I cheat and use my mixer to blend the sugar in with the chocolate mixture. My way of being lazy, maybe, but it works well so the sugar is not gritty!!! Great for Christmas get togethers, or any time you need a good dessert to take for a covered dish food.
