Chocolate Syrup Brownies

This is one of those recipes that after over four years of blogging I can not believe I haven’t shared this Chocolate Syrup Brownie Recipe with you! I’ve shared other brownie recipes of course.

There is BYU Mint Brownies and Brownies for a Crowd, Double Chocolate Brownies with Caramel Frosting, Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies, Caramel Brownies and Puffy Peanut Butter and Cheesecake  Swirled Brownies, Symphony Brownies but never have I shared with you The Best Brownies.  I can call them this because this is my mother’s recipe and her last name is Best!

This is my mother’s go to brownie recipe.  The ones she always uses.  It is a good one.  It is the Best one!

The recipe calls for a can of chocolate syrup and a half a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. This makes for a chocolatey, fudgy brownie.  Just the way I like them.

(My store only carries dented cans of chocolate syrup!)

The frosting for these brownies is cooked and it makes for a nice fudge like frosting! Let it cool a bit to thicken up before you spread it on the top of the brownies.

After they cool and the frosting sets up cut them into squares and of course place them on a pretty plate.

As you know I have quite an addiction to pretty cake plates.  This new pretty cake plate showed up at my door just in time to use with my brownies. This cake plate was sent to me by Jerri Sargent who is an independent consultant for Blessings UnlimitedBlessings Unlimited carries a beautiful line of home decor items and gifts.  I especially liked this plate because it has my Word of the Year on it!  I’d love for you to go over to Jerri’s site and check out some of the other beautiful items they carry and you can even get yourself a pretty cake plate too!  There are a couple of other cake plates I have my eye on.

These brownies taste pretty amazing but I think they taste even better when they are served on a pretty plate.

A good brownie recipe is a must have for every cook so if you don”t have one- now you do!

These brownies are everything a brownie should be – chocolatey, fudgey and moist.

    I buy Hershey’s syrup in the large bottles at Costco so I was in a dilema wondering just how much syrup is in a can AND is there more than one size can. Went online and from the Hershey’s website they have the same recipe minus that wonderful sounding frosting. They are saying that a 16 ounce can of syrup is 1 1/2 cups. Was it a 16 ounce can that you used?

    Thank you..

    Thank you for the recipe. I made them over the weekend for a special friend.

    I had to make the frosting twice because I didn’t follow your instructions to boil the sugar and milk before adding the other ingredients! Next time I’ll pay closer to attention to all of your details.

    Thank you!

    I wanted to try your chocolate syrup brownie recipe. I have some recipes that are close to the same except, some have baking powder (1/2 tsp) in them. Just wanted to make sure when I make yours that I don’t have to put the baking powder in it. Thanks!
