Frosted Fudge Brownies Recipe

Frosted Fudge Brownies Recipe

A neighbor brought over a pan of these rich brownies along with the recipe when I came home from the hospital with our baby daughter 12 years ago. I've made them ever since for family occasions, potlucks and parties at work.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + cooling Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FROSTING:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2-2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup milk

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan, melt butter. Remove from the heat. Stir in cocoa; cool. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until blended. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture. Stir in vanilla and the cooled chocolate mixture until well blended.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.

"These brownies would be really good but my personal opinion about this recipe is that the teaspoon of salt should be cut to 1/2 teaspoon and the butter to use is unsalted butter then next time some one try this recipe a teaspoon of salt would be perfect"

"These were amazing! They stayed moist and yummy for several days . . . and they only lasted that long because I hid them! Next time, though, I'll probably half the frosting. The recipe made WAY more than I needed, but it was good for use on other things like cupcakes."
