Brownies for a Crowd

Want a great recipe to take to a BBQ
this summer that will satisfy a crowd?
These brownies are
and they are SO EASY to make!


Large Pan Brownies

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup oil
(I use 1/2 butter, melted and 1/2 olive oil)
4 eggs
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup chopped nuts
(I omit due to allergies)

Put all ingredients in mixing bowl in order given.
Beat on slow speed until smooth ~ Do not overmix.
Pour batter into greased 9x13 inch pan.
Bake @ 350* F for 30 minutes (no longer).

Cool and Ice.

**You could also skip the icing step and serve warm with ice cream ~
Super yummy option! :)


Melt 2 squares baking chocolate in double boiler.
(I use 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips instead).
Stir into it 1 cup icing (powdered) sugar,
2 Tbsp butter,
1 beaten egg,
and 1 tsp vanilla

Simmer gently and stir.
I do this for a few minutes to cook the egg.
Cool a little before spreading over the brownies.
**Make sure the brownies are fully cooled first,
or they will become soggy!

Oh. Dear. Me.
Try to share! ;-)
