Oooohhh my!!!! These brownies are AHHhhmazing! Ladies, you have GOT to try these out! When I had my friend’s girls over for a mini cooking class, these are what we made for dessert. They told me they were the best brownies they have ever tasted! We couldn’t wait for them to cool, haha…who doesn’t love homemade brownies pipping hot out of the oven? They are irresistible.
Go grab a canister of Ghirardelli ground chocolate/baking cocoa and just follow the recipe on the back!
Ever notice just saying the word “brownie” makes ya smile? Try it…Brownnnnnieeeeee….MMMMMmmmm!

Preheat oven to 350, Using a spoon, stire eggs with sugar and vanilla; add butter.

Sift Sweet Ground Chocolate with flour, baking powder, and salt.
(I simply put it in a separate bowl and fluffed it with a fork. It worked.)

Stir into egg mixture; (you may add nuts and chocolate chips) Spread into a greased 8″ square pan.

Bake for 20 mins. Place pan on a cooling rack and let cool before cutting (if you can resist…I can’t). I used a throw-away pan because these went home with the girls. I prefer using a glass square pan if I’m making them for my family.

While the brownies were cooling, we made the frosting: butter, milk, Ghirardelli Cocoa, Confectioners sugar, salt, and vanilla.

It was ok…
