Speaking of Christmas,  It’s already less than 100 days to the holiday season.  And many of you might be preparing your menus to serve during noche buena and media noche.  You can add this brownie to your menu as dessert.  The kids will love this.  This is the recipe that Ais’ kids like.  They always request for me to bake this on weekends.
