  • 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.
