Today is my two year blogoversary and we are celebrating with delicious brownies for a crowd. Can you believe it has been two years? So since it is my blogoversary we need a celebration, right! I want to thank all of you for being so awesome and helping make my blog what it is today.
Since I can’t have an actual party with you all, we are going to have a virtual party that is going to last the whole week. If I could have you all over for an actual party I would serve you a great spread of desserts. Since we have to do this whole party thing virtually, you will just have to enjoy pictures with the recipe of the sweets I’d share. Not quite as good as having the actual treats but pretty darn close. So all week will be sweet treats.
Now for today’s sweet treat. It’s these delicious Brownies for a Crowd. This recipe comes from a lady that lives in my area and she is well known for her brownies, sweet rolls, and dinner rolls. And lucky for you and me, I have her brownie recipe. Now the recipe makes a whole sheet pan of brownies, but if you don’t have a crowd to make these for, I am sure it would work just fine to half the recipe and put it in a 9×13 pan. The other thing that is different about this recipe. You make a normal chocolate frosting, but then put it on the brownies while it is still hot. The frosting melts into a nice glaze type topping on these fudgy brownies. Can you say chocolaty delicious? YUM!
- 8 eggs
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 cups of butter , melted (yes that is right 2 cups – remember these are for a crowd)
- 1 1/2 cups Hershey’s cocoa (that is what her recipe says and that is what I used)
- 4 cups sugar
- 4 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- Beat eggs with a mixer in a large bowl. Then add sugar, salt, vanilla and beat for 1 minute.Add melted butter and blend. In another bowl, mix flour and cocoa with a whisk until well blended,Add flour mixture to egg mixture and mix until well combined.Spread onto a greased jelly roll pan (12 x 17) and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and spread with frosting.
- For the frosting: Blend powdered sugar, butter, and cocoa along with enough milk to make the frosting a spreadable consistency. Spread over the brownies after they had cooled for 15 minutes. Keep spreading as the frosting melts making it nice and even on the brownies. Allow brownies to continue to cool. Makes 30 good sized brownies.
