Frosting Recipes to Use to Frost Brownies

Frosting Recipes to Use to Frost Brownies

I have been quite busy lately and feel like I am being pulled in many different directions. My coping mechanism is brownies with frosting. Many years of stress have led me to perfect several different frostings. I have shared these recipes before (I have even reduced the Mocha Fudge frosting to 140 characters and tweeted it to a fellow blogger) but thought that perhaps somebody else out there might also be overworked and in need of an easy, delicious mood booster.

I try to avoid controversial subjects on my blog, so I am not going to debate chewy versus dry cakelike brownies, nor am I going to engage in an argument about the merits of naked brownies. I am going to assume that the purists were scared off by my title and that I am talking to kindred spirits. So let’s discuss our favorite ways to frost brownies. Below are my family’s current favorites, which all make enough to cover a 13 x 9 pan of brownies. Leave a link or a recipe for your favorite brownie frosting in the comment section. I wonder how many ways we can come up with to frost a brownie…
