Chocolate Brownies

Rich Chocolate Brownies In my continual quest for the perfect brownie, my sister shared this contribution.

A cocoa brownie, these are still very gooey and rich!

They get extra points for having a frosting layer as thick as the brownie layer!

They are most definitely a contender – and disappeared very quickly around here!

Rich Chocolate Brownie

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter melted
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Frosting:

3 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
2 tablespoons warm water
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Add butter and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add to the batter and mix well.

Pour the mixture into a greased 8 inch square baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. remove from the oven when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

For frosting, combine the cocoa and the butter. In a small cup, dissolve the coffee granules in the warm water and add it to the cocoa mixture. Stir in the powdered sugar until smooth. Frost the brownies.

Enjoy!
