Tuxedo Frosted Brownies

I grew up on a farm and always liked to help my mother in the kitchen, even at a young age, especially when it came to making desserts. When we're planning to serve refreshments at one of our social meetings, I'm often asked to make these brownies. —Edith Amburn, Mount Airy, North Carolina
