I made these brownies about every other day when I was pregnant and couldn't get enough of them! They are better than a box I promise!

Best Ever Brownies


½ cup butter

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. baking powder

½ bag chocolate chunks (optional for more chocolaty goodness!)


3 TBSP butter, softened

3 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder

1 TBSP honey

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup confectioners’ sugar


Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.

In a large saucepan, melt butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Do not overcook.

To make frosting: combine butter, cocoa, honey, vanilla, and confectioners’ sugar. Frost brownies while they are still warm.

If you double the recipe – it should cook in about 30 minutes. Put a toothpick about 2 inches from the edge of pan and it should be almost clean. This keeps them fudgy!
