These have been my son's "birthday cake" ever since he was about 3 years old. The brownies are chewy and chocolately, and best of all, easy to make!

Ingredients

BROWNIES

1 c
butter, room temperature
2 c
sugar
4 Tbsp
cocoa powder (heaping)
4
eggs, beaten
1 c
all purpose flour
1 c
walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 tsp
vanilla extract

ICING

1 - 1 1/2 c
powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
1 1/2 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 Tbsp
boiling water
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Step-By-Step

1Cream sugar, cocoa and butter.
2Add beaten eggs and vanilla.
3Add flour and fold in walnuts.
4Bake in greased 9x13 pan at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Top will appear underdone (falls in the middle) but DON'T overbake!! Should be moist and chewy.

While brownies are baking, prepare icing by mixing ingredients together with electric beater.
5Add icing immediately after removing brownies from oven so it will melt into a shiny glaze.
6Let cool and enjoy!
