I made these brownies once before without the frosting, because I had used the last of my butter in the brownies themselves. I absolutely loved them without the frosting, and was really excited to try them with frosting. Now, the frosting itself...needs adaptation. I usually use a different recipe for frosting and it never fails, but I wanted to give this one a try. First of all, using the proportions listed, all I got was a big chocolatey, crumbly mess. Too much dry ingredient, not enough wet, not for a frosting. I added a few splashes of milk until it reached a frosting consistency I was satisfied with. The taste of the frosting falls short for me though. I can't pinpoint why, but I just don't love it. I will definitely make these brownies again and again, but I think from now on I'll just omit the frosting. They're perfect on their own.
