Summer picnic sensational

Excellent summer treat. I bring this dessert to all cookouts and picnics and only end up bringing home the empty dish - not even a crumb remaining.

I was never fond of brownies until I made this for a family function. Who knew that brownies were so good. This is now a favorite of mine.

Mine didn't come out as nice but edible. I switched to blueberries instead of blackberries-we don't eat blackberries. Will bring to my Aunt's for July 4th

Wow! These are the best brownies I've ever tasted, they don't even need anything on them. They were also wonderful with the topping. Instead of whipped cream (because I didn't have any) I used cream cheese mixed with a little sugar and covered the top in fresh strawberries. YUMMY!! This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This was very easy to make and fun. It did not last long at the family gathering. I will make this again very soon and recommend this to anyone.
