or , as I’m calling them, brownies.  These things are excellent!  Moist, light, rich, chocolaty and sweet.  Perfect.  For a quick dessert, warm individual pieces up for a few seconds and scoop some good vanilla ice cream on top.   I don’t think I have to go try any other sheet cake recipes, this is the one to go into the recipe box.  Once again, I’m not let down by The Pioneer Woman!
