The Fudgiest Brownies!
1 cup butter, melted
3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Lightly grease a 9x13 cake pan.
Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared cake pan
Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely before cutting or frosting.
These are the fudgiest brownies you'll ever find so they don't really need to be frosted..... but why not.... now they are the most outrageous fudgiest frosted brownies you'll ever find!
¼ C butter, melted
6 T cocoa powder unsweetened - I use Dutch cocoa powder for this frosting
½ tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup milk
Stir butter and cocoa together until smooth, add vanilla.
Stir in milk, add powdered sugar a little at a time, using a hand mixer at medium high speed beat until rich and creamy, about 3 minutes or so.
If you like your frosting thicker add more powdered sugar if you like it thin add more milk.
