THE BIG BAD WOLF'S BROWNIES: Wolf Moon Brownies!

Last night was the full moon 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 thought of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs. The recipe below is for 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's Brownies.
