A very moist, rich brownie with an incredible frosting! I think next time though I'll use the "one bowl" approach and melt the butter in the microwave, then mix in the cocoa and go from there. I've used other recipes that do this and they work find. These were for a teen event my son was attending and he requested nuts in the brownies so we added a 1/2 cup each of walnuts and pecans. They received rave reviews. Thanks!
