Best Brownie Recipe Ever

These are sinful – absolutely delicious and completely dangerous! If you’re intrigued, read on!

For years I was intimidated by brownies, and scared to make my own for fear that they wouldn’t turn out. I’m not really sure what I was afraid of, as this recipe seems to be 100% foolproof!  Once you taste them, you’ll never believe how simple they are to make or how quickly they disappear!

Best Brownie Recipe Ever

1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 pinch salt

Heat margarine and cocoa powder over medium heat and mix til smooth. Turn off heat. Beat eggs well, until frothy and add sugar, flour and salt. Add in chocolate mixture and stir well. I use my electric mixer for all of it. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 25 minutes, then frost with icing (recipe below)

Icing (Frost Brownies while still warm in the pan)

1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 TBSP margarine
2 TBSP hot water

    Does this recipe double well? Or can I just add baking powder?

    Made these for a church thing and I am NOT a huge brownie fan, can typically take ’em or leave ’em, but these were AMAZING!!! If you are even a little intrigued…you really must make them. They are easy, fairly quick and dummy-proof (as are most of cat’s recipies thankfully!) and the result will knock your socks off! Try ’em – you won’t be sorry!

    I’m guessing your are putting this into an 8×8 or 9×9 inch pan?

    Sounds very easy, I will make it tomorrow. Hubby did a dance when I told him that I’d make brownies from scratch for the very first time. 🙂

    I baked for required amount of time and they still were not done. I will try baking longer next time. They were still very good!
