These are very rich and definitely sinful brownies! For serious chocolate lovers only! This is similar to a brownie recipe I usually use with similar results. The only reason I'm not giving this five stars is because the directions could be stated a little better for beginner cooks. For example, it doesn't mention an oven temp, only moderate. I baked mine at 350 for about 30-35 minutes. I also used a 9x13 baking dish, which the recipe doesn't state. For the brownies, I added the butter-chocolate mixture to a mixing bowl to beat in the rest of the ingredients. And for the icing, I melted the butter in the microwave, then added the butter and then poured that mixture into a large mixing bowl to beat in the rest of the ingredients. I did need to add a couple more tablespoons of milk to make it more easily spreadable. My sons and DH will gobble these brownies up! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
Made this for the DH and he enjoyed it as a change from cake though he thought it was overly sweet. I only used about a 1/3 of the icing as I knew if I used it all it would be too much for him (I have frozen the rest of the icing to use on cupcakes later). I have frozen what he didn't take and will see how it goes and give a further update then. Thank you Noo, made for 1,2,3 and 4 Hit Wonders.
These were easy enough to make (I followed a previous reviewer's suggestion to bake them in a 13x9 dish for 25 min). They were not nearly as fudgy as I had hoped for, and next time I'll definitely bake them in a smaller dish as they turned out thinner than I wanted. I skipped the icing and served them with vanilla ice cream. Definitely worth making, and I'll continue my quest for the perfect (for me) brownie recipe. Thanks for sharing!
I make brownies a lot, so was not uncomfortable with the lack of oven temperature or baking pan size! However, that information really needs to be in the directions when it comes to those who aren't yet that comfortable in the kitchen! Your brownies are GREAT TASTING & easy enough to make! Thanks for sharing them! [Tagged, made & reviewed just for the 'halibut!']
