These are the best brownies that I have ever tasted!!! It's pretty simple to make and I am sure everyone will love them! This is also from one of my favorite cookbooks-The Breast of Friends...
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 -1 1⁄2 cup icing sugar
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 3 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix all brownie ingredients. Bake in a greased 9x11 inch pan at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.
- While brownies are baking, mix all icing ingredients together. Set aside.
- Immediately ice brownie with icing while still hot.
A bit too sweet, but very good!
WOW! Just when I thought I was already making the best brownies (the Hershey syrup recipe) in the world, these come along. These are a chocolate lover's dream. I have to warn you, though, they ARE very very rich but I love them that way. They almost taste like fudge only they are so very chewy. I did have to bake mine about 35 minutes, but I think that was because I used a stoneware baking dish. I also had to add a little milk to the frosting to get it to the right consistency to spread over the brownies. If you love chocolate, you have to try these.
My sweet baby girl you are now able to fly the nest...and I will miss you terribly till next time anyway. I made these up after Cathy did, they were quick, easy and just the right answer to my chocolate craving. Thank you so much for a dreamy sweet confection recipe.
