Chewy Gooey Brownies with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Yield : 9″ x 13″

INGREDIENTS:

For the Brownies:

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

12 tablespoons butter

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups cocoa powder (I used this dark cocoa powder)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used these bittersweet chocolate chips)

For the Frosting:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1/3 cup cocoa powder (I just used regular cocoa for the frosting, not the dark, but either would be good I’m sure)

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup milk (plus more as needed)

a pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS:

For the Brownies:

  • Grease a 9×13 inch pan and preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Combine the sugars and butter in a microwave save bowl and cook in the microwave until the butter is melted. Allow to cool slightly. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  • Combine the cocoa, flour, salt, and soda and add to the butter mixture, stirring until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Frost cooled brownies with chocolate frosting (recipe below).

For the Frosting:

  • Combine the butter and cocoa and cook on the stove or in the microwave until the butter is melted. Add the vanilla. Alternately add the powdered sugar and milk, mixing well after each addition. Add more milk about 1 tablespoon at a time if necessary until the frosting is smooth and glossy. Add a pinch of salt.
