1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter or marg.
1/2 cup Cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Gently mix all the above together but don't overmix.
Spread into an 8" x 8" pan sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 degrees 20 to 25 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
HOME-MADE ICING: 1 cup powdered sugar. Add milk a couple of tablespoons at a time until consistency you desire. Pour over cooled brownies and let icing stand. I like it really thick so my brownies are on the verge of being fudge! Make sure you have ice cold milk in the fridge to wash these down.
Note: I prefer to make anything from scratch. There are so many things that are easy to make from scratch instead of opening a box and not knowing what they're putting in our packaged food these days. Hope you'll try these brownies!

|Remember, these are "fudgy" brownies. Mixture will be thick.|
