“This frosting comes from my Mom. You can use it on made-from-scratch brownies, or give boxed brownies a special touch. Very rich and VERY good!”

This is a thick, glossy, fudge-like frosting, perfect, I agree, for brownies, though I used it to frost My Mom's Chocolate Cake, also from this site. I prepared this exactly as written and found both the ingredients and the directions to be spot on. Hubs called this frosting a cross between a truffle and fudge. I just call it darn good!

I submitted this recipe and I cannot stress enough how you need to make sure it is boiling properly and for the time specified. Also, the frosting won't separate from the brownie if you put it on when the brownies are still warm. My habit with making this is to put all the ingredients into the pot that need to boil together while the brownies bake. I also put the cup of chocolate chips in the measuring cup and add the splash of vanilla (otherwise I forget it) to that cup. As soon as I mix in the chocolate chips, I pour it over the brownies. I never have problems with separation. It amazes me the ways people have used this frosting and the variations they have found work for them. I can honestly say it never occurred to me to use this on anything other than brownies, and my Mom was equally shocked when I told her people use it on other things! Thanks for giving ME ideas for ways to use this. I do have a friend who refers to the brownies I make with this frosting as "brudge" -- a combination of brownie and fudge. ;-)

Holy cow! Fudge on top of brownies. How much better could it get? This frosting is like a light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth fudge. The word I would use to describe it is "confection." I missed the part where it said that it frosts a 9x13 inch pan of brownies, and used it to frost an 8x8 inch pan. Whoopsie, my bad! Ok not really, I love frosting.....Anyways, follow the recipe to a tee and you will be delighted!
