Colleen's Frosted Fudgy Brownie recipe that I made yesterday after she sent in the recipe
Hi Barb --
Re: Brownie Bake-off
Today I made a very easy, fudgy recipe. It is very quick. And with the frosting it really is almost like fudge. I may have sent it before: Miss Megan's Fudge Brownies.
I love the Barefoot Contessa Recipe for brownies - I use pecans instead of walnuts. If it is the one I'm thinking of it has tons of chocolate and very little flour and makes a huge pan-full. I usually cut the whole thing into quarters and freeze the sections. It keeps really well.
Buddy [Elizabeth] LOVES the Fudgy Brownie recipe below. Actually all the kids do. The texture really works for them, sans nuts. I remember HATING nuts in cookies when I was younger. I still can't get behind people who put raisins in cinnamon rolls or cookies now. Maybe when I'm 70.
I am waiting on pins and needles to find out which brownie recipe wins! I NEED this information!
Miss Megan's Fudge Brownies with Frosting
For the brownies:
Four ounces unsweetened chocolate

For the frosting:
1 stick butter
1 2/3 cups sugar
7 Tablespoons milk
1 2/3 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
While brownies are cooling, make the frosting:
