I tried to dislike these.
I tried to say they were, ‘chocolate but bland.’
I tried to say, ‘theses need a strong shot of expresso.’
…these brownies are so moist, and ooooeeeyyyy gooooeeeyy. They just melt in your mouth!
These brownies are thin, baked in the 8×8 pan, but they are so rich.

(Adapted from Texas Fudge Brownies found here)
pinch of salt
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
In separate bowl, melt in microwave:
2 oz chocolate (I used Olive and Sinclair 67% cacao)
1 stick butter
Cool slightly and add to egg mixture while whisking.
1/2 c. flour
Pour into greased 8×8 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
While the brownies are baking, make the frosting:
Over medium heat, bring to boil:
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1/4 c. whole milk
2 T cocoa powder
1/4 t espresso powder and a pinch of salt to hot butter mixture.
2 c. sifted powdered sugar and mix until smooth
Pour icing over hot brownies immediately after removing from oven.
Let cool completely before cutting; these cut more smoothly after refrigerated (but they taste better at room temperature!)
