1/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 to 3 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8-inch square baking pan. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Place 3 ounces chocolate into bowl. Microwave 1 minute on Medium (50% power). Stir; continue microwaving, stirring at 1 minute intervals, 2-3 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Place 1/4 cup butter into another bowl. Whisk butter until soft and creamy.  Add sugar; continue beating until well mixed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 1/4 cup milk, corn syrup and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until well mixed. Add 3 ounces melted chocolate; continue beating until well mixed. Stir in flour and baking powder until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour brownie mixture into prepared pan. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Bake 23-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Do not over-bake.) Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine all frosting ingredients except milk in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled brownies.

Tip #1

- To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate.

Tip #2

- Reduce baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

Tip #3

- To prepare brownies in 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Tip #4

- For the most tender brownies, stir brownie mixture only until smooth; do not over-mix.
