I can’t even begin to describe to you how good these are, except to say that I am still trying to watch my weight and count calories and I ate 2 of them yesterday! Even now I know that they are down there in the kitchen taunting me and I so badly want to go eat one for breakfast but like I said, I had two yesterday so I’m trying to pretend that they aren’t there. YUM!! The recipe comes from a blog I really love called “Six Sisters’ Stuff”.
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
1 Preheat oven to 350.
2 With mixer, blend melted butter and cocoa until smooth. Add flour and sugar and beat together. Mix in eggs and vanilla (and nuts if using them) and mix until combined, do not overmix.
3 Pour batter into greased 9 x 13″ pan. Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean.
4 Let brownies cool about 10 – 20 minutes and then frost while still warm.
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
