Brownies are my very favorite sweet treat. I bake them all the time. So naturally I had to try these Lunch Lady Brownies that I saw all over Pinterest.
Because what’s the only thing better than a brownie? A brownie with frosting. And these brownies are covered in a wonderful chocolate icing.
These are my very favorite kind of brownie- fudgy, chewy, and oh so chocolaty.
You’ll have a hard time not eating 2 or 3 or even 4 or 5. They are that good. It’s a classic recipe you will want to make over and over again.
Supposedly this recipe was originally from a lunch lady in Idaho- hence the name Lunch Lady Brownies. The recipe dates back about 50 years, proving it has stood the test of time. It’s a simple recipe made from just butter, cocoa, flour, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
If you haven’t tried this recipe before, you’ll find they are definitely a keeper.

A classic recipe for fudge, chewy brownies with icing.
- 1 cup butter melted
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with foil. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and 1/2 cup cocoa powder together until smooth.
Add remaining brownie ingredients and stir until evenly combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes.
Let brownies cool 15 minutes and then frost. (They should still be somewhat warm when you frost them.)
To make frosting, use an electric mixer to beat together all frosting ingredients until smooth. Spread frosting on brownies.
