I found this brownie recipe years ago in a magazine. I remember making brownies for my kids. My daughter coming home from after school activities and the boys coming home from working at the farm and indulging in a chocolate brownie, or in their case the pan of brownies…
The Best Brownies
1 1/2 sticks of butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/14 tsp vanilla extract (use real extract)
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 T milk
In a large heavy saucepan on low heat, melt 8 T of butter and the chocolate, stirring constantly
Remove from heat and add the sugar, 2 tsp vanilla and the eggs, one at a time
Blend in the flour and nuts
Pour into a greased 8 inch square pan and spread out
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or till the brownies start to pull from the sides of the pan
Frosting
In a medium size bowl beat with an electric mixer the remaining butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy
on low speed gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa, alternating with the milk ( you may need to adjust the milk, I add a bit more)
Beat till fluffy
Frost the brownies when still warm…
ENJOY!
