Frosted Brownies

As I mentioned before, I haven't been cooking much since summer started.  I am working full-time now and everyone is always on the go.

I searched in my old recipes and found this recipe from years back.  I noticed a friend from church, Liz, sent this to me via email back into 2001.  I am not sure why I haven't made it til now.  I had all of the ingredients on hand, trusted Liz's good judgement and gave these brownies a try.  We loved them.  With so many kids coming in and out, these were gone the next day!  Thanks Liz for a new recipe!


Brownies

2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup melted margarine (i used butter)
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Mix together and bake in a greased 9 x 13 at 375 for 20-25 minutes.

Frosting (make while brownies are baking)

3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Boil together sugar, milk and butter until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and add chocolate chips.  Stir well.  Make frosting towards the end of the baking time for brownies.  Spread quickly because this frosting hardens fairly fast!
