Rich Brownies Covered With Melted Chocolate Icing
These brownies are so rich, they're positively sinful!
These brownies are incredibly moist and if you are a chocolate lover, you'll feel as though you've died and gone to heaven!
The brownie base bakes up light and moist while the icing has a melting quality that will have you reaching for more. Instead of actual icing, chocolate chips are melted and combined with butter and water for a truffle-like topping that is unbeatable.
The double-whammy on chocolate makes these brownies rich and positively sinful.
This recipe makes a full pan. Brownies can be made ahead and frozen (if you can stay out of them long enough to freeze them!). These sweet treats are perfect to serve when entertaining or when you have a hankering for a rich chocolatey dessert.
