This is my good ole standby brownie recipe that I thought one day, why not add that old fashioned peanut butter icing I love so much as an icing. The results were delicious. I loved it and I think you will too.
Mary's Gooey Brownies with Peanut Butter Icing
From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup canola oil, divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 handfuls of walnuts or pecans, chopped
Stir cocoa and baking soda together. Blend 1/3 c. veg. oil into cocoa until well mixed and shiny.
Add boiling water, stir until thickened.
Add in sugar, remaining 1/3 c. oil, and eggs, stirring until smooth. Add flour, vanilla and salt, blending completely. Add nuts. Pour into a lightly greased 13 x 9 metal baking pan and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool and frost with Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Icing.
Note: I use Hershey's cocoa and White Lily flour.
