Frosted Fudgy Cocoa Brownies

These are so yummy and easy. And you can say you made brownies from scratch!

1 stick of butter plus 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup cocoa plus 2 1/2 tablesppons cocoa
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped peacan (optioal)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 table spoon milk
*preheat oven to 350 degrees. melt 1 stick of butter, add 1/3 cup cocoa powder and stir until blended.

*add sugar and mix well. add eggs one at a time, beat after you add. beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla, then flour and salt. stir in pecans.

*put in greased pan and bake for 20 to 25 mintues. let it cool completely.

* melt 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, add remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa, stir until well blended. mix in remaing 3/4 teaspoon vanilla. with mixer beat powdered sugar and milk until smooth and fluffy. spread on cooled brownines.
-I usually double the reciepe and still make it in a 8 inch pan so they are thicker.

Sounds heavely with a tall glass of milk. Way to make it from scratch too, very impressed!
