My Kids Favorite Brownies | An Easy Homemade Brownie Recipe


These are my kids favorite brownies! It’s such a simple brownie recipe guaranteed to be a hit!

So this homemade brownie recipe is a family classic…One of those things that my mom made for me growing up. And when she passed away a few years ago I never really thought about them again, honestly.  I mean, I do have an amazing brownie recipe of my own.

Anyhow, I was on Pinterest a while back and saw a photo of a brownie that looked like the brownies I remembered eating as a kid…a crusty frosted brownie that was dense and chewy! Luckily I have all my mom’s recipe boxes and was able to find the brownie recipe card!  It looks like she got the recipe from a church friend…it’s one of those recipes that I am sure was passed around a lot in the 80s.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I made these brownies for my kids and they quickly declared them their favorite…I think it’s because of their mild chocolate flavor, no coffee or espresso…with a frosting that’s not too thick. You see, you frost the brownies while they are still warm so the frosting half absorbs into the top of the brownie…it’s awesome! The consistency is chewy, and thick…and with the frosting on the top they are perfectly sweet.

These are a fantastic and easy Homemade Brownie Recipe!

How do you make my Kid’s Favorite Brownies?

  • Mix the melted butter, cocoa powder, eggs and vanilla together it will begin to thicken up, so make sure you mix it enough!
  • Then add sugar and flour, and spread it into a prepared pan.
  • These bake up very evenly, which is so great!
  • While they’re baking make your frosting.  And then spread that all over the top while the brownies are still warm.This makes some of the frosting melt right into the top of the brownies. YES!
