Have you been in search of that brownie that just melts in your mouth? These are them. Delicious. I'd rather have a vanilla cupcake, but my middle child had a half birthday (pretty big deal when you're a preschooler!) and her favorite is brownies. She requested brownies to take to school (with a summer birthday they celebrate half  birthdays instead...) And so I found this recipe, fabulous. Melts in your mouth perfection. After eating one of these you will never buy a box mix again (except for those lazy days, ha!)

Best Basic Brownie
Source: Tasty Kitchen

  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 cups White Sugar
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ⅔ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

  • Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan.

    Melt butter. Add ingredients in the order listed, mix just until mixed.

    Bake for 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake.

    Serves: 24

    Nutrition: 168 calories, unfrosted
    233 calories each when lightly frosted (half batch of my Chocolate Buttercream Frosting)

    While they are delicious plain, to add to the chocolatey dreaminess of the basic brownie, add chocolate frosting :) For my daughters class I used a half batch of my Chocolate Buttercream Frosting so that the preschoolers wouldn't be on too big of a sugar high!

    You could even dazzle them up with sprinkles :)
