Ingredients

Brownies

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp chocolate pudding mix powder
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Frosting

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Brownies

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9X13 pan with non-stick spray.
  • Cut the butter into slices (about 1 tbsp each). 
  • Add the butter and chocolate chips to a glass bowl. Set it on top of a saucepan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until the chocolate and butter are completely melted.
  • Take off of heat and whisk in the sugars. This will lower the temperature of the chocolate. Check to make sure it is room temperature before proceeding.
  • Whisk in the eggs one at a time until combined. 
  • Pour in the flour and salt. Fold the batter gently until the flour is barely combined. Do not over mix. Over mixing will result in cake like brownies.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared 9X13 pan. 
  • Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Take the brownies out of the oven and then proceed with making the frosting.

Frosting

  • Melt the milk, butter and sugar together in a sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 30 seconds then remove from heat.
  • Add the chocolate chips and vanilla to the sauce pan and stir until completely melted.
  • While the frosting is still hot, pour over the brownies. 
  • Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
