Mom's Brownies

I wanted to share with you my favorite brownie recipe. Seriously, so good. This is the recipe my mom has made my whole life, hence "Mom's Brownies."

Mom's Brownies
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

~Melt chocolate and butter together in a small pan. In a medium bowl, mix sugar and eggs together. Add melted chocolate/butter. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt.
~Pour batter into a greased 8 by 8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

1 T. Butter
1 square unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/t T. hot water

~Melt butter and chocolate together in  a pan. Once melted, add powdered sugar and hot water. Stir until smooth. Spread on brownies. (I normally spread them on the brownies after they have been out of the oven for a few minutes, so they are still warm.)
~Optional: sprinkle with nuts or mini M&M's. We choose the M&M's.

This recipe is really quick and easy. Once you taste them, you may never buy a brownie mix again. Enjoy!

You know I share you sentiment on boxed mixes: But speaking as someone who doesn't like icing (even on brownies; I know, what's wrong with me?), I've found the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix I get at Costco is amazing. The brownies are super chocolatey and fudgy but the top is crackly. That's what I can't seem the reproduce in my kitchen. (I've tried about 15 brownie recipes in the last few years, hoping to find a good one.)
