My Grandma’s Brownies: The Best Brownies You’ve Ever Tasted

  • Author: Audrey
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 30-40 1x


A dense and chewy brownie with fudge-like icing.



2 large eggs, room temperature

3 sticks (24 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

2 c. granulated sugar

1 c. milk (suggest using 2% or whole)

½ tsp salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

¾ c. cocoa powder

2 c. all-purpose flour


1 c. chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet)

6 tbsp milk (use at least 2% milk fat)

6 tbsp unsalted butter

c. granulated sugar

½ tsp salt


Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. Using a non-stick spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Begin, by beating the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Then, add the eggs along with the vanilla, stirring and scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

In a bowl, place the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Mix well until blended.

In three stages, add the dry ingredients alternately with milk, beating on low speed until mixed (dry ingredients, milk, dry ingredients, milk then dry ingredients).

Into the prepared pan, pour the batter, spreading evenly. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven when done and allow the brownies to cool for about 30 minutes. Note to not let the brownies cool completely before frosting.

In the meantime, whip up the frosting. Into a saucepan. Add the butter, milk, and granulated sugar. Then, heat on medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Let the mixture boil for about a minute. Then, take the pan off the heat. Whisk in the salt along with the chocolate chips. Vigorously stir until smooth. Quickly spread the frosting over the warm brownies.

Allow the frosting the set before slicing the brownie into squares.


If using an 11 x 17-inch pan, bake the brownies for about 25 to 30 minutes. Note that the brownies would not be as thick but still crazy delicious! I slice the brownies small to make around 40 small brownies.

How To Make it Gluten free

Use store-bought gluten-free all-purpose flour or homemade.

Chocolate does not contain gluten by itself. To make sure you are using gluten-free, though, always read the label.
