Better Than Sex Brownies

There's days we need chocolate! Will kill for it.

Trust me, these brownies will fulfill that need. I tend to use chocolate flavored coffee to give it extra punch.


Texas Brownies

2 cup. flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup strong brewed coffee or water
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup margarine
2 tbsp. cocoa
1/4 cup milk
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Combine flour and sugar.
In heavy pan, combine butter, shortening, coffee or water and cocoa. Stir and heat to boiling.
Pour boiling mixture over the flour and sugar in the large bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, baking soda and vanilla.
Mix well using wooden spoon or high speed on mixer.
Pour into well buttered 17x1/2x11 jelly roll pan.
Bake at 400 for 20 min. or until brownies done in center.
While brownies bake, prepare the frosting. In pan, combine butter, cocoa and milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
Mix in powdered sugar and add vanilla; stir til smooth.
pour warm frosting over brownies as soon as you take them out of oven.

If you want thicker frosting, halve again, or double, the ingredients
