Homemade Brownies with Funfetti Frosting




At least once a week my 16 year old asks me to make him brownies. He really doesn't care what kind of brownies as long as they are rich, fudgy and most definitely none of that "cakey brownie nonsense". More often than not I laugh off his request since let's face it, if he had his choice, every day would be brownie day. However, once in a while I cave in and deliver, which makes me his favorite person in the world for at least that day!

Superbowl Sunday was a perfect occasion to add a little sweet treat to our menu that would also appease my brownie loving boy. So I spent way too much time pouring over recipes on Pinterest to find a brownie that would fit all the requirements of my 16 year old. Before I knew it, I had wasted spent an hour looking for "the one" when I came across these brownies. 

Rich and dense looking with a delicious frosting AND sprinkles. My teenager was sold. What was even more appealing to me was the one-bowl approach of the brownies itself, meaning they come together fast and without dirtying a lot of dishes. Once the brownies are cooled, the frosting is whipped up quickly and you have a scrumptious dessert in no time. Score for mom, mission accomplished!



Homemade Brownies with Funfetti Frosting
~makes one 9x13 pan~
(Print this Recipe)


Ingredients:
Brownies:
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract 

1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups flour
12 oz (ish) jar hot fudge sauce
Frosting:
2 sticks unsalted butter, slightly softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. and 2 tsp Butter Vanilla Emulsion
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup ice cream sprinkles (find them near the ice cream)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 pan with foil (it makes the brownies easier to remove) and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa and melted butter. Stir in sugar until combined. Stir in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in vanilla and salt. Fold in flour JUST until you no longer see flour streaks in the batter. Gently fold in hot fudge sauce (you may need to heat it just enough to spoon/pour out of jar).


Spread batter in prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes. Brownies will look cakey on top and feel very dense -- that is normal. Let brownies cool completely.


Prepare frosting:

In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter and butter vanilla emulsion on medium speed until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar, a little at a time, until just combined. Add heavy cream and beat on high for about 1 minute, until fluffy and smooth. Fold in sprinkles.


Frost cooled brownies. For best results, cover and refrigerate for several hours or preferably overnight.


Note: Don't skip the butter vanilla emulsion as it lends the "funfetti" flavor to the frosting. You can either buy it online or find it at your local Walmart in the cake decorating/supply section.

  57. Computer games are beginning to have a growing popularity among children every year. The increasingly addictive effect of computer games prompts parents to worry about the negative effects of games on children. In the friv game site, children are playing games, as well as mathematical games that will help their lessons alongside games. These games contribute to children's intelligent development.
    It is useful to know the best-selling game throughout the history of the game before going into depth. Mario is one of the best-selling computer games and has sold over 210 million units worldwide. friv 2mario character has been in more than 200 votes.
    Today two-thirds of the American population is playing computer games. These games first appeared in the 1970s and became a source of fun and learning for both children and adults. Nintendo, PlayStation, or Wii games can be found in categories such as action, adventure, sports, entertainment, adult and education.
    Since the design of computer games, a comprehensive research has been launched on the effects of these games on children. These studies have revealed that the games have both good and bad effects, that the children change their gameplay according to their ages and the time they spend on games. Friv games have a positive effect on people. There are also cases where computer games have a positive effect on children.
    When playing computer games, children gain problem-solving skills, learn how to work in teams, and the perception becomes clearer. It also helps short-term memory grow. Playing computer games requires faster and more accurate decisions, so that decision-making skills improve.
    Hyperactive children are in a hurry and are forced to concentrate on the work they do. They can not use their intelligence because they can not watch the lesson because they can not sit at the beginning of the book.
    Attention can be used for the treatment of computer games for anyone who has little difficulty collecting.
    It is inconvenient that the only interest of the child is a computer. But it is important for the academic success of the child to use the computer in developing the mind.Do not let children learn violence on a computer, but use your energy to discover something.
    This should not be forgotten; Domestic violence is more harmful than violence on the computer.
