Garrett's Brownies
Gary is a great baker! Breads of all types are his biggest forte', but he can also make some wonderful sweet treats as well. His chocolate iced brownies are one of our favorites! 
Preparation Time: 1 hour
Serves: 16
 
Brownie Ingredients:
  • cups Flour
  • teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 5 ounces Unsweetened Chocolate (5 squares)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
 
Icing Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Confectioner's Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 ounces Unsweetened Chocolate (1 squares)
  • 1 tablespoon Light Corn Syrup
  • teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons Milk
 
Brownie Directions:
  • Preheat an oven to 350 F.
  • Butter an 8” square cake pan.
  • In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate together in a double boiler.
    If you don't have a double boiler, you can melt the butter in a small skillet and then gently melt the chocolate into the butter. 
  • In another mixing bowl, mix the sugar, eggs and vanilla, then add the melted chocolate.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the flour mixture and beat till smooth. 
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan and level it.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the brownie separates from the side of the pan. 
  • Let cool in the pan. 
  • Frost with the frosting. 
  • Cut into 16 squares..
 
Icing Directions:
  • Melt the butter, corn syrup and chocolate together in a double boiler.
    If you don't have a double boiler, you can melt the butter in a small skillet and then gently melt the chocolate into the butter. 
  • In a mixing bowl combine this with the sugar and vanilla. 
  • Add milk tablespoon at a time until the frosting is almost thin enough to pour. 
  • Frosting the brownies while they are still warm is easiest as the frosting will be thin enough to spread.
    When it cools it will thicken.
 
Alternatives:
  • You can use a flavored extract in place of the vanilla, such as almond or orange extract. 
  • We don't care much for nuts in our brownies, but if you do, add cups of your favorite chopped nuts to the brownie mixture and sprinkle  cup of chopped or whole nuts to the top of the icing. 
  • After icing the brownies you can top them with anything, chocolate chips, M&Ms, even a Hershey Kiss on each square after you cut them.
  • You don't have to ice the brownies, but if you decide to top each brownie with chocolate chips or nuts, add the topping while the brownies are still hot in the pan. This way they will stick to the tops after they've cooled. 
  • If you add nuts to the top without icing, do so when their hot, cover with a sheet of wax paper and gently push the chopped nuts into the brownies before cutting. 
  • To add whole nuts to the top, cut the brownies immediately after removing them from the oven. (Please remember they are going to be piping hot!) Place one whole nut onto each square and gently push it into the brownie.
 
For Holiday Brownies:
  • For Spring - Add a holiday colored Hershey Kiss to the top of each brownie. 
  • For Winter - Add green mint chips or chopped Andes Candies to the brown mix. You can also top them with a variety of chips with or without icing.
