This is one of my favorite brownie recipes. It makes a fudgy delicious brownie with a decadent frosted top.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Topping

  • 6 tbs butter, softened
  • 6 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

  • Preheat over to 350 F. Grease a 9×13″ baking pan.
  • In a saucepan, melt 1 cup butter. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 tsp vanilla. Beat in 2/3 cup cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into a prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes (careful not to overcook).
  • To make topping: combine softened butter, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Frost the brownies right after they come out of the oven. If you have a hard time spreading the frosting you can stick the brownies back in the oven for 1-2 minutes to warm it up and make it easier to spread.
