- 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons milk or half-and-half cream

- 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.

Made these for our Super Bowl party. The brownies turned out great but I had trouble with the icing. Mine turned out very thick and grainy like the sugar didn't dissolve properly. We still ate them & I may try the recipe again as I think they have potential. Not sure what happened.

My 9 and 7 year old made these for a bake sale and everyone loved them.

Oh Man, these sound great- but anything with 1/2 & 1/2 is good. I used to make frosted brownies for when we would go to the lake but I always put a bunch of walnuts on the top of half (some for those who like nuts, and some for those who don't). Your recipe reminded me of how much I like these- thanks for the recipe--I will definatly try these!

I make this for all my church functions and I use it when I have dinner parties. Never have any left overs. Merrybears
