However, these frosted brownies are so (SO!) good that I can’t stop craving them.Frosted Brownie RecipeThe brownies are chewy at the edges and perfectly cakey/fudgy in the middle. And the frosting! The frosting is ridiculous. It’s so rich and has just the right amount of sweetness. Do yourself a favor, and make these brownies!Frosted Brownie Recipe
