1 cup melted butter
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
Chocolate Frosting Ingredients:
¼ cup butter
¼ cup milk
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a 9×13 baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
Melt two sticks of butter, and mix with cocoa powder with electric mixer until smooth.
Add the sugar and flour and mix.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix again.
Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.
While the brownies cool, make the frosting.
Using a mixer, combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.
Frost the brownies after they have cooled about 75% of the way but are still slightly warm.
Place the brownies in the fridge to cool completely before cutting.
