Brownies from Heaven

How many Brownie recipes can there really be? I have asked myself that before. BUT, these Brownies are the bomb. One bowl wonders of amazing deliciousness.(is that a word) I have made these brownies four times now, and each time they were perfect. No debate.

These brownies are frosted. Some might say, that these would be "just fine" without frosting, but I disagree. The frosting is put on when you take the brownies out of the oven. It just melts in, adding more flavor.

Morsels of moist chocolaty deliciousness.

Brownies from Heaven

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup of cocoa powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Turn on oven to 350 degrees. Spray or butter a 9 x 13 pan. I have also used tin foil in my pan for easy removal. Spray tin foil if using that method.

In a large bowl, add butter and chocolate. Place in microwave and melt for a minute or two. Time depends on the power of your microwave. Continue to check and stir until completely melted. The butter will melt first, and then the chocolate.
Remove from the microwave and with a spatula, gently stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs and mix. Then add remaining dry ingredients and mix until combined. Spread batter into baking pan and place in the oven for 28 minutes. Bake until toothpick comes out mostly clean, with a little bit of fudgey.

One bowl is all you need to make these brownies, NO mixer today

This is a full pan of brownies

6 tablespoons butter softened
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 - 2 cups of powdered sugar

Beat until combined to the consistency you like. Will be slightly stiff. Frost while the brownies are warm. The frosting will melt over the brownies. These brownies will not dry out. Let cool completely before cutting. 

A nice layer of frosting to add more flavor

Another quick easy recipe, that would be a hit at any party.
