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

  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.
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture. Add nuts if using.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake about 22 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pan.
  6. When brownies are cool, prepare frosting:
  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.
