The Best Brownies EVER! Lunchroom Ladies 50 year old recipe

Written by admin

Brownies are my very favorite sweet treat. I bake them all the time. So naturally I had to try these Lunch Lady Brownies that I saw all over Pinterest.
Because what’s the only thing better than a brownie? A brownie with frosting. And these brownies are covered in a wonderful chocolate icing.

These are my very favorite kind of brownie- fudgy, chewy, and oh so chocolaty.
You’ll have a hard time not eating 2 or 3 or even 4 or 5. They are that good. It’s a classic recipe you will want to make over and over again.
Supposedly this recipe was originally from a lunch lady in Idaho- hence the name Lunch Lady Brownies. The recipe dates back about 50 years, proving it has stood the test of time. It’s a simple recipe made from just butter, cocoa, flour, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
