Original recipe yields 3 dozen



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with 1 inch sides.
  2. Mix together 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter or margarine, eggs, chocolate syrup, and flour. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan.
  4. Combine 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, milk, and 1 1/4 cups sugar in a saucepan. Stir and boil for 3 minutes. Add 1 Cup chocolate chips, and stir over low heat until melted. Frost cooled brownies immediately so frosting does not cool and harden. Cut into bars.

To keep the frosting from being granular, be sure and frost the brownies when they're still warm! My father in law and friend's husband started counting how many they saw each other eat...funny!



My friend makes this recipe, but she adds mini marshmallows to the top when the brownie part is done cooking, then returns it to the oven to melt the marshmallows, cools, then frosts. I used a smaller baking pan and mine came out thick and cakey with longer baking time needed (I don't have a jelly roll pan). I didn't make the frosting, but the brownie was delcious.



It was more like cake than a brownie. It was not chocolately enough and the sugar did not dissolve well in the icing, even though I left the icing on the heat longer than I would have otherwise.
