Chewy Cocoa Brownies

Chewy Cocoa Brownies

The recipe for these brownies and the frosting came from a Nestle Toll House cocoa container. I prefer chewy brownies to cakey ones. If I want cakey, I will eat cake. They come together pretty fast.

Chewy Cocoa Brownies with Chocolate Lover's Frosting From: Nestle

1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons of water
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix sugar, butter, and water. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and then add to the wet mixture. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 18-25 minutes (a tooth pick will come out slightly sticky). Cool in pan.

3 cups sifted powdered sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter, softened
5-6 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla

With mixer, beat 1 cup of the powdered sugar, the cocoa, butter and vanilla together. Slowly add the milk and the rest of the sugar, beating until smooth. Spread immediately over cooled brownies.
