I've been searching for years for a brownie recipe that i like. This is it!

This recipe was good, but definitely not the best brownie recipe I have used. It was not as chocolatey as I like. I will probably go back to other recipes. But, if you need a big pan of brownies for some occasion, this would certainly work.

The brownie itself is very, very soft - even to the edges! More so the next day. However, I did not care for the frosting and made another version the next time I made these. I would definitely put these on top of my favorites list for brownies.

I really enjoyed these brownies, especially being able to use a cookie cutter and decorate them for little kids. The only suggestion I'd make is to add to the recipe directions: allow the butter/chocolate/sugar mixture to cool a bit or advise customers to stir eggs in quickly. I did not let my mixture cool very long and my egg whites began to cook in the bowl while mixing. It was nothing that a little vigorous motion couldn't cure, but it very easily could have been a disaster!
