I doubled the recipe for a party, and everybody loved them! The problem with the icing is that you need to halve the amount of icing sugar and melt the butter. This makes a glaze that you can spread on top. It hardens into a beautiful, shiny icing. Note: 1. These are neither "cake" brownies nor "fudge" brownies; they fall somewhere in between. If you must have one or the other, then this recipe is not for you. 2. Yes, the icing is sweet. If you like icing, then add it, if not, leave it off.
