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.

I've been reluctant to share this family secret but have thought it was the least I could do after gleaning so many great recipes from this site. My apologies to my sister Erin the Caterer as this has become one of her signature sweets. My family is "NUTS" about these.

Gleaned from an Old "Holy Ghost Society" Cookbook - Sonoma County Fair (1985)

Ingredients

Directions

Melt butter, chocolate chips and chocolate and set aside to cool. Beat eggs until thick and lemon colored (most important part) Add sugar gradually while beating. Add cooled chocolate mixture and vanilla. Gently fold in flour, marshmallows and nuts. Pour into well greased 9 x 9 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Easily doubled for 9 x 12 inch pan. Oh My these are so-ooooo good!

If your cookies or brownies crumble and fall apart, don't despair! Just use them to make yummy ice cream sundaes -- put the crumbled baked goods in the bottom of a dish, top with ice cream, chocolate or caramel syrup, whipped cream, nuts -- let your imagination run wild!

What is your favorite brownie recipe (or mix) which doesn't include frosting, marshmallows or caramel? I'm seeking both standard brownies and embellished ones - cream cheese, raspberries, cherries, etc.

I have added chopped up candy bars to a box brownie mix and it was pretty good.

I dont' have any favorite, I just throw in some chocolate chips, maybe some chocolate syrup swirled on top before I bake (makes a nice chewie sticky texture). In ANY boxed mix, I always add vanilla to give it a little bit more "real" flavor.

FUDGE BROWNIES

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 - 1 ounce squares unsweetened chocolate,
melted and cooled
3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans, or almonds

Oven setting 350 degrees

In medium saucepan melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat; stir in sugar. Blend in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts; mix well. Spread in greased 8x8x2-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Be careful not to over bake. Cool. Cut into 16 squares.

Substitute baking cocoa for the squares of unsweetened chocolate.

3 level tablespoons of cocoa + 1 tablespoon oil = 1 square (1 oz.) unsweetened baking chocolate. Just double this for your 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate.

I submitted my recipe for Fudge Brownies, and don't have a clue why the measurements did not post the way that I copied and pasted them from my original recipe.

I contacted thriftyfun technical support and hope that this problem can be corrected. I see that technical support fixed the problem.

To give a different taste to your brownies, add 1 teaspoon of Mexican vanilla. It doesn't taste like regular vanilla and has a wonderful, unique taste of its own.

Get a box of Andes mints and take the papers off them. Bake your brownies as directed on the box. When you take them out of the oven, arrange the mints on top of the hot brownies. The mints will melt quickly. Swirl in a decorative way and let cool until the topping is firm. Cut into desired size squares and enjoy. These taste like you did something more than just top with mint.

Different colored M&M's are pretty in brownies. You can color coordinate them for the holiday you're preparing them for. Example: red & green for Christmas, red for Valentine's Day, etc.

I am looking for a homemade brownie recipe for a 9x13 pan.

To clarify the answer above, most recipes designed for an 8 by 8 inch pan will work in a 9 by 13 if you double the recipe. Baking time might be a little longer, though, because it'll take the heat longer to reach all the way into the middle of the larger pan.
