This is a quick and simple post because I am swamped this week. A while ago a friend showed me how to fancy up regular brownies by adding a layer of buttercream frosting and a chocolate glaze. If you have any leftover buttercream frosting this recipe will go together faster for you. Or if you must, you may use canned frosting. So for busy days when I don’t have time to be fancy, I remember recipes like this and realize I can.
One large brownie mix- I like Duncan Hines
1 1/2- 2 cups buttercream frosting
1 stick butter
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake brownies in a 9×13 inch pan according to package directions. Cool and frost with buttercream frosting so that it is about 1/4 inch thick. Melt butter and add chocolate chips and stir until the glaze is smooth. Pour glaze over buttercream and spread evenly. Let the glaze set, slice brownies and serve. Makes 24 brownies.
Update- It’s a crazy week but I am hanging in there. My friend Bobby and I are feeding 30 hungry children tomorrow after the play rehearsal. Then on Friday feeding about 100 people during the play’s intermission plus feeding the children after the play. I think my friend Bobby and I will be all catered out. My friend Sheila and her daughter Amber are the directors and really have the biggest task of all. My kids are so excited. The boys are in a scene together playing Tweedledum and Tweedledee and Daelyn plays a duck. So cute.
