Brownie Batter Frosting


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup brownie mix, dry (from the box)
  • 2 squares of unsweetened bakers chocolate, melted (assuming squares are 1 oz. each)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar (more if needed for desired consistency)
  • 2 Tbsp. hot water, more if needed


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Pour in the melted chocolate squares and mix thoroughly then add the dry brownie mix, salt, and vanilla and beat again. Slowly add in the powdered sugar. It will be thick! Add the hot water (one tablespoon at a time) until the desired consistency is achieved.
  2. Taste it to be sure you like it - you may want to add more cocoa powder or brownie mix or vanilla or salt... I like to tinker with recipe amounts until I get them just perfect for me!
