Moist, thick fudge brownie's are one of my favorite treats, top them with fudge frosting and I think they are perfect. I will warn you ahead of time that when you make these brownies you may just eat the entire pan of frosting it is that good. It is easy to make, creamy and fudgy. You can use it on brownies, cupcakes, cakes and more. I personally like it as the filling of cakes.
Recipe adapted from Baker's Chocolate
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of flour
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9 x 13" baking pan by lining it with parchment paper and then spraying it with baking spray or butter.
In a large bowl melt butter and chocolate. You can use the microwave but I use a double boiler. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir occasionally until the butter and chocolate are melted. Add the sugar and mix well. Then add the eggs and vanilla and stir until combined. Add the flour and mix until just incorporated.
Pour mixture into pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. I like to bake them until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean with a few crumbs on it. Do not over bake.
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup milk
5 tablespoons butter
Put first three ingredients in a saucepan on low, let the sugar dissolve and then bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. With a wire whisk mix until creamy and cooled. Then frost your brownies or cake and enjoy.
