This is technically yesterday's post. I forgot to post it! Melody will have another post for you later today.
My family has a brownie recipe that is incredible. This recipe has one cup of butter and two cups of sugar. They are no joke, hence the name that I gave them.
They are the perfect brownie to whip up when you have guests coming over, because believe me, you do not want the whole pan in your house because you will eat them all. The whole pan.
Place a scoop of ice cream, some warm chocolate sauce and even some sprinkles on top and you have the perfect dessert.
No Joke Brownies
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
3 large eggs
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (also optional, but you will be missing out if you don't put them in. Just sayin'.)
Preheat oven to 350 fahrenheit.
Melt butter and add sugars and cocoa. Blend well. Beat eggs in one at a time. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add vanilla. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Bake in a 9x13 pan for 30 min.
** Sometimes I don't use this icing recipe and just use a store bought version. Easy and still good. **
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup icing sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
2 T milk
2 T hot coffee (you can use instant coffee for this)
Beat the butter, sugar and cocoa together. Add the milk and hot coffee to the mixture. Spread on top of cooled brownies.
