Recipe from Amy Bakes Everything
In case you haven’t noticed, I bake. I bake a lot! In the process of all this baking, I have decided I need to be on a quest to find the perfect brownie. Also the perfect chocolate chip cookie, but that’s a whole separate post.
This past summer I tried out my first homemade brownie recipe. They were definitely a good, cake like brownie, but since then I think I have discovered that for me, the perfect brownie is fudgy. Very fudgy.
The moment I saw these brownies from Amy I knew I would need to make them, and I knew they would be great. The recipe certainly didn’t disappoint. The fudgy frosting on top of this recipe is what makes these brownies amazing for me! I’ve already been thinking about other recipes I can use it in, and honestly, I may just top all of my brownies with it from now on! The hardest part was having to wait for the frosting to cool, but trust me these are worth the wait. Enjoy!
Texas Fudge Brownies
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
⅓ cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick margarine
½ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup (1/2 stick) salted butter
¼ cup milk
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together eggs and salt until light and frothy. Add in sugar and mix well. Add vanilla. In a microwave safe bowl melt together the margarine and chocolate chips (approximately 30 seconds). Add chocolate to egg mixture while mixer is running. Mix in flour just until combined. Pour into greased 8×8 inch baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes.
To make frosting, heat butter, milk and cocoa over medium high heat. Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Add in powdered sugar and stir until smooth. Pour over hot brownies. Cool completely before serving.
