Brownies With Chocolate Icing

This recipe is so good it's almost decadent. Hope you enjoy.


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • Ad
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla/butternut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Combine first 4 ingredients and beat until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until creamy. Add vanilla/butternut and pecans. Spread in well greased 13x9 inch pan. Bake on middle rack of oven at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Chocolate Icing

In a double boiler, place

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla/butternut
  • 2 Tbsp. white Karo syrup
  • 6 Tbsp. milk

Heat until hot, then add:

  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 6 cups powdered sugar

Mix with hand mixer until hot and creamy. I always sift my cocoa and powered sugar to decrease lumps. Ice brownies with hot icing. This is enough for a 3 layer cake or 2 batches of brownies.

Are the pecans critical? We don't eat nuts. Thanks, Robbyn

Nuts are always optional in brownies.

I made these and substituted GF flour (Gluten Free flour). I am on a gluten free diet because I have celiac. Because it had so many eggs I thought it might work. They turned out very well, but the sides stuck to the edges of the pan up high and I had to cut the pieces off before cutting the rest. They also took 10 more minutes to bake. I think I may increase the GF flour next time by 1/4 c and see if that helps. I really enjoyed them and my husband (who can eat any brownies) said they were very good brownies. May I have permission to post the recipe on a celiac site?

I also found that the brownies were so good, I didn't think that they needed the icing. May try the icing for a cake:)
