I was looking for something chocolate to cook, my family loves chocolate anything. I choose this one for 2 reasons - #1 simple ingredients things most bakers always have on hand and #2 directions seemed very easy.

This is very simple to make - comes out moist and rich. I followed the recipe for the icing and it was a little thick, which my family likes. If you want a thinner icing, add a little more milk. My husband and three boys loved this. I will never buy a box mix again. Very easy and DELISH!!

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa. Let it cool.
2
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add this mixture to the egg mixture. Stir in the vanilla and the cooled chocolate mixture. Mix well.
3
Spread the mix into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes.
4
For frosting, in mixing bowl cream all ingredients together. Start with adding a 1/4 cup of milk in and if too thick, add a little more to achieve spreading consistency. Spread over cooled brownies.

Yield: 24 brownies
