I don't usually share many recipes, but I do pretty much post life as it happens
around here and our favorite brownies were happenin' yesterday.
Mr. Simple coaches a high school girls' tennis team, he requested these for their
end-of-season get together - Yay Tigers!!
They're actually boxed brownies taken up a notch!
Still simple, of course, just make these two changes to the mix instructions, and frost!
Use with any regular brownie mix, not premium or fancy varieties.
Replace 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup half and half
Add one additional egg
Frosting is a MUST!
6 T. butter (3/4 stick)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/8 t. salt
2 - 3 T. half and half
Microwave butter and chocolate chips one minute or until melted. Add 1 1/2 cups powdered
sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Add remaining powdered sugar and half and half. Frost when
you remove the brownies from the oven, as the frosting melts completely cover the brownies.
Let cool until frosting is set.
