Frosted Fudge Walnut Brownies

My Frosted Fudge Walnut Brownies recipe comes from a childhood memory of the most delicious brownies. One of my Mothers friends made the most delicious brownies and they were a very special treat when we would go there for a visit. Of course time goes on and I grew up and moved from the community but I never forgot those brownies. Last year I decided to try and get as close to the brownies as I could and this is the recipe that I have come up with. It is a little different because I updated some of the products that we use today, but the flavor and the texture's are very close to the same. I can't begin to tell you how delicious that first bite of this brownie was to me. It took me right back to my childhood sitting in her home waiting for that special treat!

The frosting starts with a butter and cocoa heated mix.

Next I make a deep well in the confectioners sugar and
 pour the warm butter and cocoa mix into the well.

I like to use my hand mixer for this, it just works better for me.

the consistency that you will need for the frosting.

  2. I love how food brings up childhood memories. I happen to love brownie mixes, even though I also make from scratch ones. The proof is in the frosting, and yours sounds and looks fabulous!! Walnuts on top makes it even better 😋
