Brownies are not something I make a lot of, and when I do it’s usually because I needed something quick for a pitch in of some sort so I just grabbed a box. But I was inspired by my homemade nutella brownies to make homemade brownies to see if they really were that much better. Spoiler alert: they are! Here’s what you need . . .
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
First, add all of your dry ingredients to one bowl and sift together. Then add wet ingredients one at a time and stir well after each addition. Put in your favorite brownie pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
If you would like to add the icing that I did. It is super simple as well. Just mix 3 cups confectioners sugar, 1/3 cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add more milk or sugar to get correct consistency as needed. Add as many ice cream sprinkles as you can stand to make it fun-fetti.
Once the brownies are completely cool ice them all up and enjoy! I hate the waiting till they cool process, but melted icing is far worse.
