WILL YOU MARRY ME BUTTERMILK BROWNIES

OK everyone, sit up and take notice.  These brownies have quite a history; who knows how many zillions of pounds we have gained and lost because of these brownies!  Also, I have actually received numerous marriage proposals from men in a brownie induced stupor/coma.  Our rule is that my husband Pat is not allowed to be in the same room with buttermilk brownies . . . fresh or 5 days old . . . without adult supervision!
