Melt-in-your-Mouth Fudge Brownies

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Fudge Brownies
Today is National Brownie Day, so I thought I’d share this recipe our daughter Rebekah whipped up for us recently. She loves to bake, and the rest of us love to eat, so it’s a winning combination!

She calls them “Melt-in-Your-Mouth Fudge Brownies” — and they are fantastic!

Why not mix up a double batch this afternoon? One to keep and one to share with neighbors as an early Christmas gift?

Ingredients for Brownies:

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1½ Tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour

Ingredients for frosting:

  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2½ cups powder sugar
  • ¼ cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Line a 9” x 13” pan with foil, then spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Using a stand mixer, combine melted butter and cocoa powder. Mix on medium speed until smooth with no visible lumps.

  7. While the brownies are baking, prepare your frosting by beating the butter and cocoa powder together, then adding in the milk and powdered sugar and whipping until smooth.
  8. Allow the brownies to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before spreading on frosting. The brownies will still be warm, but not hot.

  9. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting into squares. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or a big glass of cold milk!

This recipe makes 30 melt-in-your-mouth fudge brownies. My daughter found it online at cookiesandcups.com (which has some of the most decadent-looking chocolate creations I’ve ever eyeballed, incidentally).

The brownies are scrumptious. The only thing that might make them better is adding a cupful of pecans in the icing, but that’s just my opinion!
