Brownies for a Crowd
Recipe copied from The Sisters' Cafe
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp cocoa (Dutch is darker)
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups melted butter
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
Mix together and spread on a buttered cookie sheet (standard stainless steel). Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 minutes. Be sure to not overcook. Frost
1/2 cup butter
3 1/2 tsp cocoa
6 TBsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Powdered Sugar--I have never measured. I just add until I get the consistency I want. If it becomes too thick I just add a little more milk.
Boil together, remove from heat and add powdered sugar. You can add nuts into the frosting or sprinkle on top if you would like.
Shown here with large sugar granules (can get at Roberts).
