WFMW: Beautiful Brownies

I've been looking for a brownie with fudgy icing, but not donut glaze type icing or canned frosting. After a bit of searching I found a great recipe from Cooks.com. These brownies are like the ones they sell at Chick-fil-A or the ones I remember my mom buying from the Publix bakery when I was a kid.

To display the brownies attractively I made sure to cut them evenly. I removed the whole pan of cooled brownies and cut the slab in half the long way. I then cut each long half into another half (for four long pieces). Next I turned the whole batch sideways and cut the whole thing in half. Then I cut each half into thirds (24 even pieces). (It may sound complicated, but it isn't. Cutting the whole batch at once is much neater then cutting a piece off at a time!)


In a moment of brilliance I nestled my evenly cut brownies in white cupcake liners before putting them on the tray. It sure made them look like expensive brownies from the bakery!


Beautiful brownies are What Works for Me! Leave a comment and then head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more WFMW tips.


FUDGE COVERED BROWNIES
Printed from COOKS.COM
1 c. butter, melted


1 c. flour


1/2 tsp. baking powder


1/2 c. milk


1 c. chopped walnuts


1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk


2 c. sugar


2/3 c. cocoa


2 eggs


3 tsp. vanilla


1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter, sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, eggs, milk, and 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla; beat well. Stir in nuts. Spread into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake 40 minutes. Just before brownies are done, melt chips in a saucepan with 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and condensed milk. Spread fudge mixture over hot brownies. Cool. Chill and cut into bars. (The icing cools very quickly, so if you want to add swirls or fork lines to the top of the brownies work quickly! :)
