Rose's Brownies

I have made these brownies for two years for our local Charity League's Holiday House event and they are so good I thought I should share the recipe.  Just make these once and trust me, you'll never want boxed brownies again.

I think the secret is that the icing is just as thick as the brownie and it a slight mocha taste from the coffee you put in. Enough trying to sell you on them, here's the recipe:
1 stick butter, melted
2 cups sugar
8 tablespoons cocoa
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
Mix dry ingredients; then add eggs and butter. Add vanilla and nuts and mix well. Pour into (2) greased 8x8 inch pans. Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes (toothpick should come out clean).

1 stick butter, melted (with 1/3 cup milk added to it)
1 box powdered sugar
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix powdered sugar and cocoa. Add milk and butter. Add vanilla and coffee. Beat well and then pour over warm brownies.

Now you will be tempted to eat the entire pan right away, but they really are better if you wait till the next day to cut them. So eat 1 pan when you make them and then save the other for the next day! Enjoy!


  1. Those sound so good! I'm going to try them today!

  2. These sound good! I have left over cocoa so I will probably try them soon!


Go ahead and know ya' wanna!
