After reading a bunch of reviews, I decided to make these exactly as listed. I did have to add a dash of 1/2 and 1/2 to the icing to get it to mix. It wasn't spreadable and took some of the top of the brownie off when I tried to spread it, so I let it sit on the hot brownies and melt for a few minutes and then it spread much better. The icing was a little sweet for me, but overall still an awesome brownie. My husband loved them too. To the reviewer who said they were cakey, I would recommend following the recipe as written and NOT overcooking. I started checking mine at 23 min and they were ready at about 27 min. They are nice and fudgy on the inside with crisp edges, I wouldn't do anything differently next time. Thanks for the great recipe! ETA: usually when I make brownies, we like them very well at first, but end up having togive or throw some away, as there are always more in the pan than we have an appetite for. With this recipe, they were gone in just over 24 hours and my husband asked me to bake another batch right away. I guess they really are the best brownies!! *ETA2: I just made these again, subbing rapadura for the sugar and spelt flour for the white flour and they are still amazing. yum!!
