Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I thought these were great being that it was my first time making brownies for a client. Very easy to follow recipe. Suggestions: - Half the sugar in the frosting. I usually do this with all frostings that ask for powder sugar anyway because I prefer to err on the side of "slightly sweet" and then add as I see fit. - While cocoa powder is good, I prefer actual chocolate. So, in addition to the powder, I tempered a few baking discs of semi-sweet chocolate and added it to the frosting and whipped it together to make the perfect icing for piping. I put it in a plastic bag (didn't have a piping bag on hand) and put some swirls in there. I, also, added powder sugar for kicks. Next time I will sub the cocoa powder in the actual recipe itself for real chocolate. - I added instant expresso (mixed with hot water) to bring the taste of the chocolate out further. Great, simple recipe. Next time I'll add peanut butter for kicks.
