These brownies are addictive. The frosting is my favorite.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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!!
