These brownies are really good. They are more like Texas Sheet Cake than brownies, with the icing put on while the brownies are still hot. Also, I found that 1/4 c. cocoa was not enough - next time I will use 1/2 c. Same thing with the frosting - needs more cocoa. DH really like the brownies, but said they needed more chocolate. They looked more like a milk chocolate rather than chocolate fudge. I will defintely make these again.
