This recipe tastes amazing and is SUPER easy to adapt. The best part?! The base recipe for this homemade brownie mix calls for only 5 ingredients! It is also in our Dining On A Dime Cookbook !

This homemade brownie mix is the perfect size because it makes a 9×13 pan. Just perfect for everyone to have some and leftovers for lunch the next day, but not so big that you blow your diet eating the entire pan in one sitting. (who me? :-)
Another plus? There are only 2 “wet” ingredients.
Butter and eggs.
And the brownie recipe can be made in one bowl too.
I’m all for fewer dishes!
These BROWNIES ARE AMAZING!
I think these brownies are really good, but we especially love them with ice cream for a brownie sundae covered in chocolate sauce!
Here is a perfect chocolate frosting you can add to make top these brownies!
Chocolate Frosting Recipe
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Poke holes in a hot cake with a fork. Pour the hot frosting over the cake.
Of course I make the quickie version of chocolate frosting with a secret ingredient!
To make quickie frosted brownies, I use the 5 ingredient recipe below. Then, I add chocolate chips to the recipe and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top after I take the brownies out of the oven, whole 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.
If you LOVE super fudgy brownies, this is the recipe for you. This recipe calls for you to remove them 5-10 minutes before they are completely done. This gives the brownies an ooey gooey chocolate brownie amazingness that is definitely worth trying!! 🙂 If you like your brownies more done, just leave them in the oven 5-10 minutes longer.

I wanted to add a tip for cutting brownies. When you cut brownies, if you use a plastic knife, your brownies won’t “tear” apart like they sometimes do. This even works (but not quite as well) on warm brownies.
