The Big Bad Wolf's Brownies

The other night we had a full moon that will be the biggest and brightest of 2018. It's called the Wolf Moon, named after howling wolves on the coldest night of the year. It got me thinking about wolves in stories, and I remembered the Big Bad Wolf's Brownies from the Walt Disney Mickey Mouse Cookbook. This is a great and easy recipe--no huffing and puffing. Celebrate the Wolf Moon with these Big Bad Wolf Brownies.
