Bring to a light boil, stirring rapidly for a minute or two until well combined, then remove from heat. Allow to cool and thicken, then drizzle over brownies.

The original Recipe for these Brownies came from a friend of mine who made these for our teams serving as humanitarian aid workers in Iraq in the aftermath of ISIS. After cleaning out dirty; often burnt and ransacked, concrete houses, she would often have these fresh brownies waiting for us, giving us a taste of home after a long, hard day of work.
