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.

How to Make Brownies for a Crowd

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350 degrees.
    Grease well a 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 1" jelly roll pan.
  • 2Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in chocolate syrup.
  • 3Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture. Add nuts if using.
  • 4Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake about 22 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • 5Cool in pan.
  • 6When brownies are cool, prepare frosting:
  • 7Combine butter, sugar, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and vanilla.
  • 8Stir until mixture thickens slightly. (I hasten this process by putting pan's bottom in ice water.)
  • 9Spread 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.
