Kelli's Story

These brownies are addictive. The frosting is my favorite.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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!!


1 c
3 Tbsp
2 c
1 1/2 c
1 tsp
1 tsp
3/4 c
baking cocoa
1 tsp
baking powder
6 Tbsp
butter, softened
2 2/3 c
powdered sugar
1/2 c
baking cocoa
1 tsp
1/4 to 1/3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
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.
Spread the mix into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes.
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

Absolutely wonderful brownies. I agree, I will never buy a box mix again. Brownies are moist and yummy. Frosting was yummy too. Together it was a little to sweet for my taste so next time I make them, I must just do half the frosting. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Maybe you should read the whole recipe again. It is not confusing...really!!
The one cup of butter goes in the brownies and the rest of the butter (6 Tablespoons) goes in the frosting for on top of the brownies. Hope this clears it up for you. 3/9/14

Just wanted to post a little tweak I made tonight...I've been substituting ground flaxseed for egg in a lot of my recipes lately, and I tried it with these tonight. Turned out great! I've learned the secret to subbing flax is to wait for it to thicken a little past egg consistency. :) Hope this helps someone out! I'm sure I'll be posting some "weird" recipes on here soon, as my family is starting to move away from certain not-so-healthy things. :) Thanks again for making this recipe easy to work with! :D
