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!!


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
