- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter melted (2 1/2 sticks)
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (Bleached flour toughens baked goods)
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
- 1 cup sprinkles
- 3 tbsp. unsalted butter melted
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp. 2% milk

Melt 2 ½ sticks butter.
Add cocoa, eggs and sugar and mix with an electric mixer or whisk.
Stir in flour, sprinkles and nuts.
Grease and flour a 9x13" baking dish.
Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Allow brownies to cool about 30 minutes before adding icing.
Cook butter and cocoa for 1-2 minutes on medium heat.
Remove from burner.
Add powdered sugar and milk and whisk to combine.
Then add a dash of salt and vanilla.
Spread fudge icing over brownies working quickly so frosting stays smooth.
Sprinkle evenly with sprinkles.
Allow brownies to set up before cutting into bars.
NOTE: My brownies took about 45-50 minutes to bake completely, but some ovens may bake this recipe more quickly.
