My grandma told me that these frosted brownies are her favorite dessert. These simple frosted brownies are the bee’s knees, y’all! Take a look at what my friend Erin from the Making Memories With Your Kids food blog had to say about this magnificent recipe:

easy dessert recipes frosted brownies

I thought the brownies were wonderful! They were chewy and delicious! They were pretty darn chocolatey (I can’t believe I’m saying that like it’s a bad thing!) My son absolutely loved them! I thought they might be better with a cream cheese frosting. Of course this doesn’t mean I didn’t eat 3 of them the first day =o)

Well, I ate 3 of them the first day. Ain’t gonna lie LOL!



Killer Frosted Brownies
* 1/2 cup Kerrygold butter, room temperature
* 1 cup Domino sugar
* 1 tsp. McCormick vanilla
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 cup Gold medal flour
* 1/3 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
* 1/4 tsp. baking powder
* 1/4 tsp. Morton salt
* 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Creamy Frosting
* 3 Tbsp. butter, room temperature
* 3 Tbsp. Hershey’s cocoa
* 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup or honey
* 1/2 tsp. vanilla
* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 1 Tbsp. milk



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×9 inch pan (line with parchment paper like this)

Stir together butter, sugar and vanilla. (I used my stand mixer because it was easier, but you don’t have to.) Add eggs and combine. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
I forgot to add the chocolate chips to the batter (I’m such a dork sometimes) so I sprinkled them on the top.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until brownies just start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
To make the frosting:
Beat butter, cocoa and corn syrup together in a mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar and milk and mix until smooth. If it appears too thin, add more powdered sugar; too thick, add more milk. Makes about 1 cup of frosting.
Spread over cooled brownies.

Quick Tip: We like to eat these brownies with a scoop or two of ice cream. Yummy!
