Mississippi Mud Brownies – Recipe

When going over our list of desserts of Thanksgiving it was brought to my attention that we lacked anything with chocolate. That was not acceptable, so I dug out this chocolate masterpiece that I have wanted to try for a while. I plan on making them for a few Christmas parties in the near future. Enjoy!
