Ingredients

  • 8 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (or margarine - our grandma liked to do 1/2 cup of each)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups flour
  • 1 cup nuts optional
  • pinch salt

Frosting:

  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.  Melt butter or margarine, and then stir in cocoa. 
  • Add in sugar and eggs to the mixing bowl and stir together. 
  • Add in vanilla, flour, nuts and salt and beat together well. 
  • Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Mix the frosting ingredients together and spread over the hot brownies and serve.
  • You can also let the brownies cool and then frost. This way the frosting is thicker.
