Iced Brownies

Brownies are a favorite for summer picnics, and these are the best! I received this recipe from a dear friend many years ago, and I still make it at least once a month. Whenever I'm asked to bring a dessert to an outing, or if I want to send a treat to a neighbor or friend, I always prepare these wonderful brownies.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    about 3 dozen


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • ICING:
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons milk or half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add syrup. Gradually add flour and mix well. Fold in the nuts. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, for icing, combine the sugar, butter and milk in a small saucepan. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and chocolate chips until chips are melted. (Mixture will be thin.) Immediately pour over brownies. Cool completely before cutting.
