Notes

Of course I make the quickie version of chocolate frosting with a secret ingredient!
To make quickie chocolate frosted brownies, I start with the 5 ingredient recipe above. Then, I add chocolate chips to the recipe and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top after I take the brownies out of the oven, while they are still piping hot. Then when the chips are melted, I spread the melted chocolate chips over the top for an “over the top” double chocolate brownie.
