These scrumptious brownies get dressed up with a delicious browned butter frosting. The combination is delightfully different and assures they vanish fast around the house or at a party. -Peggy Mangus, Worland, Wyoming

"These are truly yummy! I was a little weirded out by the glaze ingredients.....no sugar added to the unsweetened chocolate and butter?? How can that be?? I even tasted it.....do not do this. Yuck! But I still frosted the bars and drizzled the glaze, trusting Taste of Home. Oh my gosh, the frosting and glaze balance out. A lot of you cooks probably knew this, but I did not and I am so happy with the way these turned out. My friends said that it was so sweet, it made their cheeks tingle! But again, don't taste test the glaze! ??"
