Brownies for a Crowd

This recipe is in an old Farm Journal cookbook, Homemade Cookies, published in the 1971.
The brownies are cake-like, the chocolate syrup making them nicely moist.
I have made this recipe many times, and it is always a family favorite.

1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease well a 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 1" jelly roll pan.
2
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in chocolate syrup.

7
Combine butter, sugar, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and vanilla.
8
Stir until mixture thickens slightly. (I hasten this process by putting pan's bottom in ice water.)
9
Spread icing over brownies.
If I haven't used nuts in the brownies, sometimes I sprinkle nuts over the icing as soon as I spread it.
