I found this recipe while going through the papers of a relative that passed away, it began with this story: This is the Grubstake BBQ original recipe. Every morning the kitchen staff made a double batch, and frequently a second batch had to be whipped up in the afternoon. The Grubstake was famous for these brownies. I surmise that The Grubstake once a restaurant in California. I made one change to the recipe - which is to use a microwave to melt the butter and chocolate, making it a one bowl type recipe.
