Chocolaty and nutty goodness - that's what this brownie is all about. Adapted from an old Pillsbury recipe from 1985, this recipe is simple to prepare and enjoyable to eat. The special dark cocoa is what really makes this brownie rich and smooth. Butter and the vegan buttery sticks are interchangeable - I've used both with the same results so it's a good non-dairy alternative.
