Fudgy Frosted Brownies

I have made homemade brownies before, but they would not have been able to handle this frosting. If you like fudge, you must try these brownies. I might recommend making half of the recipe unless you have a big gathering or a really large family, because this makes a lot!! (they are really rich so cut them really small) I gave away two plates, had them for dessert for four people, plus had leftovers.

Fudgy Frosted Brownies

1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoons salt

Preheat ovent o 325. Cream butter and sugar together. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, cocoa, and salt (don't use your mixer for this part--just stir until blended). Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 35 minutes. Cool completely, then frost.
