Chocolate, Sugar, Butter, What's not to like?

I don't feel like there's anything wrong with plain old brownies from a box.  My daughter, however, feels that they are good enough to eat at home, but they are not fancy enough to bring places. By the way her stenciled brownies have had more page views than any of my projects.  She found this recipe here http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Brownie-Frosting/Detail.aspx.

We use a regular box brownie mix.
6 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1 dash vanilla extract
1.Combine the milk, butter, and sugar together in a saucepan and bring to a boil; allow to cook at a rolling boil for 30 seconds and immediately remove from heat. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla to the milk mixture and stir until the chips are completelymelted.  Pour over warm brownies.
They are yummy! 

We like them b/c they are fast and you don't have to wait for them to cool.  We just grab the entire pan and go. These are best to take someplace, b/c if they stick around your house you will eat them all.

If you've got any bored kids  (or adults), please enter my give-away for a kit that will build a 5 foot paper roller coaster.
