The same aunt who contributed the Egg Nog Bread also gave me this, and I can vouch for them 100% – they're amazing.

“Once-a-Year” Brownies
1 C. flour
1 C. sugar
1/2 C. margarine, softened
4 eggs
1 1/2 C. Hershey’s chocolate syrup
nuts, if desired
Directions: Grease a 13x9” pan. Combine all ingredients; beat until smooth. Pour in pan. Bake at 350ºF for 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake. While brownies are still hot, pour on fudge frosting; cool. Store at room temperature.
Comments: “J. R. calls these ‘once-a-year’ brownies; I make them more frequently than that, but not often enough for him. And God forbid I try a new recipe! ‘What’s wrong with the one we like?’”

Fudge Frosting
1 12 oz. pkg chocolate chips
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Directions: Melt the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk. Add vanilla. Pour over hot brownies and cool. Frosting will harden to “fudge” consistency.
