Best Brownies

Last night I just wanted something really chocolaty and easy to make. So I decided on a brownie. I found this recipe online for "Best Brownies" and I figured I couldn't go wrong with a name like that. It was a reaction similar to the reaction of Will Ferrell's character in the movie Elf where he sees a sign for "The World's Best Coffee" and figures it must be true. While I don't know if these are truly the best brownies, they were tasty. They are very gooey, chocolaty, and rich. In fact the frosting is almost like fudge on top of the brownie, and the hint of honey makes it unique.

Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 30 min

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.
  4. To Make Frosting: Combine 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup confectioners' sugar. Frost brownies while they are still warm. *This frosting is very thick, I had to add a splash of milk.

Brownies (especially with ice cream) are my favorite. You are welcome to try these out on my family next time you come visit Caroline.
