Lunch Lady Brownies

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • Frosting:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • dash of salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a mixer, blend melted butter and cocoa until smooth. Add flour and sugar; beat together. Mix in eggs and vanilla (and nuts if you are using them) and mix until combined (be sure not to over mix).
  3. Pour batter into a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean (I am in a high altitude location- I have heard that for lower altitude, you may need to bake for just a little longer).
  4. Let the brownies cool for about 10-20 minutes and then frost while still warm.
  5. Frosting:
  6. Mix all ingredients together and frost as desired.
