Directions

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

  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. 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. 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.

Recipe Tips

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

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

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

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