Chocolate-Glazed Brownies

These moist and fudgy squares are bursting with such rich chocolate flavor, you'd never know they're low in fat. They're ideal for taking to bake sales and family gatherings. For holidays, I like to dress them up with colorful candy sprinkles. —Deb Anderson, Joplin, Missouri

    Awesome, wish I could give it more stars. I added 1/4c mini chocolate chips. They made great bases for brownie sundaes!

    These came out very moist and the icing added that touch that they were missing. I made these with gluten free flour as well without any adjustments. I was very happy with the result. We topped these with raspberries and a chocolate drizzle.

    Great lower fat/cal brownie. Love the icing and the sprinkles add a s[ecial treat for the kids for the holidays (use different holiday themed sprinkles).

    The brownies were not fudge like at all, they are very dry, almost like cake
