Mom's Chewy Brownies

Comment on this recipe

"I have been making this recipe for as long as I can remember and we were married 41 years on Sept. 26, 1999.

"Our family loves my brownies. There are 22 in my immediate family. They look forward to these every time. I'm sure it will be a favorite for years to come."

Ingredients

2 sticks butter, melted
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups white granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

FUDGE FROSTING:
1 stick butter
4 tablespoons cocoa
5 tablespoons milk
1 pound powdered sugar

Instructions

Melt butter. Add cocoa and white sugar; mix on medium speed for 1 minute. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition. Add flour and vanilla. Add salt and mix 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in walnuts.

Pour into greased and floured 9x12-inch baking pan. Bake at 325 to 350 degrees, depending on oven heat, for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and frost with fudge frosting.
