Layered Brownie To Die For

Before you look over this recipe, decide if who you are baking for is worth it.  You think we are kidding!   They are worth the extra effort.  When my mother-in-law, Barbara made these for us, we  felt the love.   Spread the love and make these for that extra special someone…..they are worth it.  The portions are bite-sized, therefore they make enough to freeze part of this recipe.  Barbara found this in one of Southern Living Cookbooks.
