This is hands down the best fudgy frosting for brownies! It is super simple to make too! I don't recall where I got this from, but I use it a lot!


  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  2. Add cocoa and remove pan from heat.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients until smooth.
  4. Spread over brownies.

This was perfect on top of Tequila Brownies! Very simple to make, and the perfect amount for topping a 9"x13" pan of brownies. Thin enough when warm to pour over the brownies, so you don't drag crumbs everywhere and mar the icing surface, too. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall '12
