My older kids start school again this week! I’ve got a 3rd grader and a 1st grader now. Crazy! When I think of back-to-school, I think of school lunch. And one of my favorite school lunch treats as a kid (besides peanut butter fingers) was the frosted fudge brownies. I’ll admit, I’m a chocoholic, but come on! Look at these brownies? I think most people couldn’t resist!
