  • 1 C melted butter
  • 1/2 C dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 C flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 tsp vanilla


  • 1/4 C butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 C milk
  • 1/4 dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 C powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 inch pan with nonstick spray or you can line it with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter and cocoa powder with a wooden spoon, then add the sugar. Mix well before adding the flour. Add the eggs and vanilla together then mix well to combine until smooth.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow them to cool for 15 minutes before frosting the still warm brownies. To make the frosting, mix all the ingredients together well in a medium bowl. If the frosting becomes too thick while waiting for the brownies, just add a dash of milk. Allow them to cool completely before cutting and serving.
