I am on the search for the best brownies with the best frosting. I have to admit I am a bit partial to brownies with frosting. Yummy, gooey frosting. This year after the Walk Wisconsin 1/2 marathon they offered the BEST frosted brownies. As in, every time I think of them I am oh so close to just calling the organizers and finding out who donated them, and then begging that person to give me the recipe. I KNOW I will end up breaking down and doing it soon, I might as well get it over with. Because this recipe I used this evening was a gigantic letdown. They sounded promising while making them (after all, they were called BEST Brownies with Creamy Frosting). They looked promising when they were done. But then, one bite later, and I became angry because of the giant waste of ingredients it was. Granted, it only made an 8-inch square pan, but still. How much does a cup of flour cost – 3 cents? Wasted. In the end, I spent the next twenty minutes making Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Crunch and the evening was salvaged.
Looks can be deceiving!
