31 days of warming up to the holidays: {day 11} brownies for a crowd

I am going to post a recipe each Tuesday of this series that would be great to make during the holidays.  Last week I started with my favorite Crème Brulee French toast casserole.  Have you tried it??

This week I’m going to share a recipe that I stumbled upon this summer: Brownies for a  Crowd.  This really does serve a crowd – I cut mine a little on the small size and got 40 brownies out of the recipe!  YUM!

Do you know the trick to cutting brownies cleanly? Use a plastic knife!  It works EVERY time!

This recipe comes from the blog, Your Homebased Mom.  She got it from a friend’s cook book.   Add it to your recipe box…these brownies are delicious, easy to make, and bake in only 25 minutes!

Brownies for a Crowd
8 eggs
4 C sugar
2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. vanilla
2 C butter, melted
3 C flour
1 1/2 C cocoa
4 C powdered sugar
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C cocoa

To make brownies:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs in mixer until blended. Add in sugar, salt and vanilla and beat for 1 minute.

Add in melted butter and blend together well. In another bowl mix flour and cocoa and whisk until well blended. Add flour/cocoa mixture to wet mixture and mix until well combined.

Spread into a greased 12 x 17 jelly roll pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes and then frost.

To make frosting:
Mix together powdered sugar, butter, and cocoa along with enough milk to make the frosting a good consistency to spread.

Spread over brownies after they have cooled for 15 minutes.
The frosting will melt, making it nice and even with the brownies. Allow to cool.
I didn’t make the frosting as these were used as the base for brownie sundaes…they were delicious without the frosting, but I’m sure they’d be even more decadent with it!
