Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies

























Now how pretty is that photo? Can you almost taste it? Who doesn't love a good brownie with a cold glass of milk now and then? Especially the chewy kind with chocolate frosting on top? I made these this past weekend...just for you my friends. 

Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Brownies:

1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
2 cups all purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugars, eggs, vanilla, and salt until well blended. In a small saucepan over medium low heat, begin melting the butter. When the butter is half melted, reduce the heat to low and add the chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is mostly melted. Remove from heat and keep stirring until smooth. Whisking constantly, slowly add the chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture, mixing until well incorporated. Fold in the flour.

Grease and line a 9 x 9 inch square pan with parchment paper. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake about 23 minutes, until the middle is just slightly underdone. Place on a wire rack to cool.



























Frosting:

12 oz. (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter or shortening
1/2 cup milk
3 cups powdered sugar

In the top of a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate chips. Carefully stir in the milk until smooth. Stir in the powdered sugar. Spread evenly over the brownies, and let sit until completely set.

To decorate with the swirl as I did in my photo.

Melt white chocolate chips or melts and spoon into a Ziplock bag with a corner clipped, drizzle over the top of the warm glaze in a back and forth horizontal motion. Then pull a tooth pick , knife or skewer through the chocolate- 1st one direction and then back the other to make a fun design on the top.
