    I got this recipe out of the newspaper many, many years ago. It's very easy and oh so good! You can make it with or without the frosting.

      I read the reviews here for this brownie and also on allrecipes.com. The recipe on allrecipes.com called for an 8" square pan. I think I would use that size pan next time so that the brownies would be a little bit thicker. The 9" pan makes a thin brownie. There were many negative comments about the frosting so I went with my tried and true brownie glaze. It is the same ingredients only the butter is melted and I adjust the confectioners sugar until I get a nice consistency.

      Very good chewy brownies! I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan, and they turned out great. Thanks!

      Wonderful! A cross between a fudge and cakey brownie with rich chocolate flavor. Was glad I added the frosting on warm brownies. So good! Used butter in the brownies and honey in the frosting. Doubled the recipe and baked in a 13x9 pan for 25 minutes. Excellent in every way. This recipe is also posted on AllRecipes where it has more than 4900 reviews:) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
