Best Brownies

This is the first from scratch brownie recipe that came out correctly for me. I've had an, unfortunately, poor track record with this particular dish for some reason. I think I've tried at least 4 different recipes that just came out all wrong for one reason or another. But, as usual, AllRecipes came through for me!

These are VERY rich, especially with that thick frosting on top. Make sure you cut them small - and enjoy with a big glass of milk. They came out so fudgy, full of chocolate flavor, tender, and moist. They did not last long in my house.
