Creamy Frosted Brownies
The frosting recipe is fantastic and has one ingredient that I had never thought to add to a frosting. Corn syrup! I know what your thinking, oh yum...uhhh corn syrup. But really I don't know what it does to that frosting but it is fantastic. Not to mention that the brownies are moist and delish.
