Lunch Lady Brownies....Pinned it and tried it

Pinned it and tried it and LOVED it!!!!

I will never make another brownie recipe again. O.k. maybe I will, I'm always trying different recipes.....but  honestly this one is THEE winner so far. I have tried maybe 20 or 30 brownie recipes over the years...liked them all...but this one definitely is tops in my book. I loved how moist and fudgy it was, and the icing was so smooth and fudgy, too.

I made these for Valentines Day, so I added a few M&M's on top. 

I took my time, enjoying each bite of every brownie. I only made half a recipe and then of course I had to share half of that with Brent. And there's no cheating with him...he keeps track!

 But next time....I'll be making a full batch!

Lunch Lady Brownies

1 c. butter 
1/2 c. cocoa
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
4 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped nuts

Melt the butter and stir in the cocoa. Add the flour and sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Do not over mix. Add the nuts, if desired. Pour into a greased 9x13. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes. 

Wait only 10 minutes to frost the brownies with:

1/4 c. softened butter
1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 c.milk
dash of salt
3 c. powdered sugar
