Deborah's Mom's Brownies

I have a friend who brought her mother's famous brownie recipe to a recipe exchange one night.  I have since tried them out and absolutely LOVE them!   So good.  They are more of a cakelike brownie than a fudgey one.  Complete with icing (and tons of calories).  You must share this one with LOTS of friends!

Brownie Recipe

2 1/2 C sugar
2 1/2 sticks of butter (1 1/2 c)
6 egg
2 C flour
2/3 C cocoa
1 Tb vanilla
1/2 Tb salt
1/2 C nuts (optional)
       Cream the sugar and butter together, add eggs one at a time.  Mix remaining ingredients in order given above.  Pour into large cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  DO NOT OVER-BAKE!  Frost as desired.

Chocolate Icing (as used on the one in the picture)
1/4 C milk
1/2 C butter
6 oz chocolate chips (1 C)
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 C powdered sugar

Combine milk and butter in saucepan.  Bring to boil. Remove from heat.  Blend in chocolate chips.  Stir in vanilla and sugar. Beat until spreading consistency.  If necessary, thin with a few drops of milk.
