A few years back I was able to, finally, recreate my grandmother’s fudge frosting that she put on brownies. It brought back floods of memories. they were good as I remembered. Recently, I’ve been thinking about those iconic brownies and wondering why my grandmother used a box mix. Don’t get me wrong, Duncan Hines is awesome, but I like things from scratch whenever possible.
So I started baking. I looked at a lot of recipes! Some were too gooey. Some were too cakey. Some had too little flavor and some were too sweet. As is my usual, I combined several recipes and then cut down on some ingredients and added more of others.
I think I have finally come up with the perfect brownie to support this oh so creamy fudge frosting. The brownies are on the less sweet side but with lots of chocolatey goodness. The frosting is basically fudge. Yep!
I hope you enjoy these and when you make them you will send me a note and even some pictures.
