Begin by preparing brownie mixture by creaming together melted butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy for 1-2 minutes.
Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract.
Stir in cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, and salt. Don’t overmix.
Pour batter into a greased or parchment lined 9x13 inch pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Take out brownies and let them stand for 10 minutes while you prepare frosting (note: the frosting goes on best when the brownies are still warm).
Prepare chocolate frosting by beating all the ingredients together until smooth. Add in 1-2 teaspoons extra milk for a thinner frosting.
Pour frosting over warm brownies and cool completely before cutting and serving.
