Ooey Gooey Chocolatey Brownies

Who doesn't love brownies? The smell, the texture, the taste... Really, sit a plate of these brownies in front of me and not only will I be instantly transported back to childhood but you can bet your sweet ass those brownies are going to disappear REAL quick! These are my favorite brownies to bake and are my "Go To" whenever I'm in need of a serious chocolate fix. They are SO moist, Soooo chocolatey and just.... UGH! They practically shove themselves down your throat. Give em a  try and tell me what you think.

Is your mouth watering?


BROWNIES:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • 1 "snack pack" of chocolate pudding
  1. Heat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9 inch square baking pan.
  2. Stir butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl.
  3. Add eggs and beat well with a spoon.
  4. In a seperate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Give it a lil stir.
  5. Gradually add flour mixture to the egg mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in nuts if you are using them. Add the "snack pack" and give one final stir.
  6. Spread batter evenly into pan.
  7. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until brownies start to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  8. Frost when completely cool.

FROSTING:
  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp milk
  1. Beat butter, cocoa, honey and vanilla in a small bowl until blended.
  2. Add powdered sugar and milk; Beat until spreading consistency. If frosting is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar; If it is too thick add a little bit more milk.
** When i make these, I mix together about 2 Tbsp of cocoa powder and 1 Tbsp of powdered sugar and sift over the top of the frosted brownies.
