Best Iced Brownies Ever! My Favorite Brownie Recipe.

It's not that I'm a total brownie expert, but I do love them.  I've made many a brownie recipe from scratch, but the following is my absolute favorite.  It comes from my Baylor Homecoming cookbook.

Iced Brownie Bars:
2 cups sugar
1 cup margarine, softened
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
Icing (ingredients to follow)

Cream together sugar and margarine.  Add eggs and beat well.  Add vanilla, then stir in remaining ingredients.  Spread in a greased 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350* for 30 minutes.  Cool.  Spread icing on brownies.

1 cup brown or white sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
3 1/2 tbsp margarine
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Mix the first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan until margarine melts and all is combined.  Cool slightly.  Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla.  Frost immediately.

These would be wonderful with a tall glass of sweet tea.

I love a good brownie, and a good iced brownie is even better!

If by chance, I don't win the parfait glasses-I'll take a batch of these as a consolation prize, ok? ;)

OH NO!!!

Why do you do this? Well, at least I'm through with my diet! :)

I love brownies, and so do the girls; I'll make these the next time they're over.

Have a wonderful day! :)

When I was a kid my mom used to make frosted brownies. As adults we have asked her a million times for the recipe but she lost it. How awesome would it be if this were close to the same? Thanks!
