These chocolate brownies are honestly the best you’ll ever make. They are soft, fudgy, full of chocolate and really easy to make at home. Even best? They are frosted with a sweet and chocolaty frosting that’s just to die for.
Out of all the desserts ever created there’s one that wins my heart every time, it’s the simplest, easiest, most traditional one but I just can’t contain myself when it comes to it. Yeah, the title of the post probably explains everything but seriously, brownies are my soft spot when it comes to desserts.
However, I’m really picky when it comes to brownies just a boxed one wold not work, the reason? Becuase bronies are not easy to get right. They should be fudgy and slightly cakey (after all they should hold the shape) they should be full of chocolate flavor and not be overpowering sweet and they should be easy to make and quick to bake because after all, they are an everyday type of dessert (okay, maybe not every day but definitely not a fancy one).
As a self-described brownie aficionado, I’ve done my fair share of research when it comes to the perfect recipe, and after years of woking with only one I’ve finally decided to try a new one. This one is actually my latest favorite chocolate brownie recipe ever!
Becuase it’s as delicious as a chocolate brownie can get. The base is great, as in lick your fingers after eating it and don’t let any crumb go to waste. But the thing that really takes it to the next level of deliciousness is the frosting.
Oh my, the frosting not only amps up the chocolate flavor (and let’s be honest, that’s something that can always be amped up) but it also adds an extra layer of moistness and richness to the recipe.
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1 Cup cocoa powder
½ Cup milk chocolate
1 ¼ Cups sugar
2 Sticks butter
1 Tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
For the frosting
1 Cup whipped cream
1 Cup melted chocolate
¼ Cup powdered sugar
1 Tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350F
Grease a baking pan and set it aside.
In a pot over medium heat melt the chocolate with the butter. Remove from the heat when completely melted.
Pour the melted chocolate into a bowl and add the eggs. Stir until well mixed.
Add the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix well.
Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 20 minutes or until done.
Remove from the oven and set aside to cool down.
While waiting, mix in a bowl the whipped cream, melted chocolate, powdered sugar, and salt.
Spread on top of the brownies cut into squares.
Serve and enjoy.
Add some chopped walnuts or pecans to the batter.
