These Lunch Lady Brownies are the most chocolatey, fudgy and moist brownies ever! Just like the ones they served for school lunch dessert, but this homemade version is better!
I’ve been on a brownie kick lately. I don’t know what’s come over me. Maybe it’s the stress of selling our house (which we finally sold. Yay!).. and probably the stress of building the new one soon. I dunno. All I know is that these brownies were sent from heaven above. And that I ate 4. For reals.
These brownies are simply incredible. Fudgy, chewy and totally amazing. Apparently, it’s an old classic recipe from the sweet ladies who served our lunches in Elementary school. I honestly don’t remember the brownies in Elementary school, but I do remember the rolls and the pizza. Remember how good those dinner rolls were? After I would eat mine I would go around the lunch table asking everyone else if I could have theirs. Haha.
The recipe for these Lunch Lady Brownies has been passed down for generations and is the actual recipe used in schools over 50 years ago! These fudgy brownies are soft and thick with the most delicious chocolate frosting.
Our lunch ladies would wake up at the crack of dawn to make everything from scratch. Ahhh, those were the days.
