Vintage Recipe: Fudge Squares

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This recipe for Fudge Squares appears to be similar to (if not exactly like) a chocolate brownie. The recipe was handwritten in beautiful blue script on both sides of an index card. The recipe card is dated 8/8/41.
