Creamy Brownie Frosting

Brownies are delicious. Brownies with this frosting are divine. I really can't believe how much better brownies are when you frost them with this frosting! Seriously. It turns regular brownies into transcendent decadence.

And, did I mention, it's SO easy, and takes just a few minutes.

First, beat together the butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla until blended.

Then add the powdered sugar and milk.

Beat to a spreading consistency. That's all there is to it!

This recipe makes enough frosting for a 9" pan of brownies. I had used my leftover brownie batter from waffles to make these mini muffin brownies - this recipe frosted 24 mini muffins.

Creamy Brownie Frosting

3 Tbsp. butter, softened
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup OR honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 Tbsp. milk

In a small mixing bowl, beat together the butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla until blended. Add powdered sugar and milk; beat to a spreading consistency. Spread over 9" pan of brownies.


  1. We love brownies, I have never frosted them, I have to try this !

  2. Okay, I think even I can handle this. I've never been able to produce a good frosting, so you're inspiring me to give it another try.

    I do have a brownie mix sitting in my cupboard willing itself to be made for a Friday treat.

    And I do have all the ingredients on your list for the frosting....

    Please excuse me as I head out on a preemptive 3 mile jog!!

  3. Double chocolate, YUMMY for my TUMMY!!! I just love chocolate.

  4. Oh, that is heaven on a plate! YUM!

    I have to try these as I'm addicted to chocolate. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Happy Foodie Friday...

  9. I found you via Ann's Food on Friday. No, never enough chocolate! I just made some chocolate ice cream that's got a deep flavor and not too sweet. Thanks for sharing. :)

  10. Oh yum - that's wonderful! I will have to try it. And I really like the idea of using the brownie batter to make mini brownies like that. Doesn't that mean you can eat more of them?! :)
