Mary Reed Brownies

Mary Reed Brownies

My mom got this recipe from her friend Mary Reed in 1963. They are gooey and good.
I've made a few tweaks to the recipe but have included the values from the original recipe.
Course Dessert, Snack


  • 7 T. cocoa (Original recipe: 3-1/2 T; chocolate is good for you!)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar (Original recipe: 1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 T. flour
  • 1 cup nuts (Original recipe: 1/2 cup)


  • Heat oven to 350.
  • Mix ingredients.
  • Put in greased square pan.
  • Bake 20 minutes.
  • Serve as is. Or you can ice them. Vanilla icing is good on them.
