Best Brownies

As I was baking my brownies today, I realized that I had never share my recipe on the blog.  WHAT?!  How could I have done this?  I mean everyone needs to know how to make brownies.  It should be a law.  So today I am going to share my favorite and most delicious brownie of all time recipe (at least in my opinion).
2 Sticks of Butter
1/3 C. Cocoa
2 C. Flour
2 C. Sugar
4 Eggs
4 tsp. Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Over medium heat, melt the butter and cocoa until smooth.  Pour into a mixer and add the eggs, vanilla, and sugar.  Mix until creamy, and add the flour.  Mix until well incorporated, and do not over stir.

Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper and pour the batter into the dish.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool for 10 minutes and then frost.

Frosting Recipe
1 cube butter
1/3-1/4 C. milk
3-3 1/2 C. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 C. Cocoa
Pinch of Sea Salt

Mix all together until it's the consistency that you would like.  (If you want it more runny add 3 C. Powdered Sugar, for firming add 3 1/2 C.)

Pour over warmed brownies and let harden just a bit.

I serve with Vanilla Ice Cream.  Enjoy!!


  1. Just double checking what you mean by 2 cubes of butter. Do you mean 2 tblspns? Or 2 sticks? That would be a lot of butter. I am new to baking so any help is appreciated! Thanks!

  2. I know it sounds like a lot, but yes, it's 2 sticks of unsalted butter or 1 C. of butter. I will edit that to make it easier to understand. If you have any other questions please let me know and good luck! I know they'll turn out great!

  3. How much is 1 cube of butter? I noticed this measurement in the frosting. Can you please reply asap since I want to make this yummy treat tomorrow night for family movie night. Thanks fort he recipe!

  4. It's 1/2 cup Sandra. Hope you love them!

  5. Thanks Jilly! My kids have been looking forward to brownies all week! I will post your recipe/link to blog on my next post about baking!
