I have been making these chocolate brownies since I started baking on my own. I grabbed the recipe when I moved out on my own an still make them. I’ve never been one for buying mixes from a store or anywhere else.
The icing I use, is amazing. It is just perfect.

I made these chocolate brownies just the other day when a chocolate craving hit. I had no chocolate stashed in my house, what kind of woman with three kids doesn’t have chocolate stashed somewhere? Probably one (like me) who has willpower issues.
Grab your mixer, use your whisk attachment, and toss in your eggs and sugar to mix for a minute. Add in your butter, mix for a minute.
Add in the remaining ingredients and, of course, mix. Pour the batter into a greased 9X9 pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Do you see just how great that edge looks. That is my favorite part of the brownie, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way.
While letting your brownies cool, make up your icing. This icing is my favorite, I don’t like canned, but I suck at making my own usually. This recipe though is rather fool-proof – this fool can make it!This fudge chocolate brownie #recipe is made from scratch and taste like heaven! Click To Tweet
That is honey you see above on the cocoa, I swear that that is the reason I love this recipe.
I also have to love that I can pour this over my brownies, and it will harden a bit, it will not drip off when you’re trying to eat them.
