FOR THE BROWNIES

  • 2 cups granulated sugar

Instructions
 

FOR THE BROWNIES

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 18×13 inch sheet pan. (I recommend the Nordic Ware Baker’s Half Sheet.)
  • In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, butter, vanilla, and cocoa. Then, beat in the eggs.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add in the sifted flour and salt. Mix until fully combined, scraping the sides down as needed.
  • Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool completely before frosting.

FOR THE FROSTING

  • In a large bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, softened butter, evaporated milk, and cocoa. Beat with mixer until smooth.
  • Once the brownies are completely cooled, add a thick and even layer of frosting on top of the brownies.

Notes

You can put your brownies in the refrigerator while you make the frosting to help speed up the cooling process.
