Frosted Fudge Brownies Recipe | Taste of Home

My oldest had a snow day today. What better to do on a day off from school than to bake?! I’ve made a lot of brownies from a lot of different recipes. They always leave something to be desired. These were almost perfect!

The ingredient list is small and you probably have everything in your cabinet already. On top of that, these are incredibly chocolate-y with just one type of chocolate. We added chocolate chips, just for fun but you do not need them.

These were more cake-like than fudgey, but they were moist and delicious. We might mess with the recipe a bit to get a fudgier end, but these are great as is.



  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2-2/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup whole milk


  • In a saucepan, melt butter. Remove from the heat. Stir in cocoa; cool. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until blended. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture. Stir in vanilla and the cooled chocolate mixture until well blended.
  • Spread into a greased 13×9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-28 minutes (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
  • For frosting, in a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in cocoa and vanilla. Add enough milk until the frosting achieves spreading consistency. Spread over brownies. Cut into bars.
