Brandi's Brownies

My daughter-in-law, Brandi, makes the best brownies. They are a "choco-holic's" dream--chewy, chocolate brownie with a creamy chocolate, chocolate icing. MMMMMM! I can taste them now.
Brandi's Brownies
2 sticks butter
2/3 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter. ( I use the mircowave, but be careful not to burn the butter--45 seconds should do it.) Add cocoa, sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, and salt. Mix until blended. Pour into 9X13 greased pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. (Don't bake longer than 25 minutes or they may be dry.)

1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients together with a hand mixer and spread on top of brownies.

  1. Even though I make real fudge, my kids refer to this as fudge. That is how moist and rich it is. Yea for chocolate!!!
