Grandma’s Chocolate Frosted Brownies #Choctoberfest

Grandma's Homemade Chocolate Frosted Brownies Recipe - Triple Chocolate Kitchen

Like most grandmothers out there, our Grandma Lenker is known for certain dishes – homemade, hand-kneaded cinnamon swirl bread, drop sugar cookies, cherry pie… and chocolate frosted brownies!

Since this week is #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I thought there would be no better way to start it off than by sharing her recipe.


To make these brownies, I used plenty of sugar from this year’s Gold Sponsor, Imperial Sugar. We love Imperial Sugar because their sugar products and sweeteners use non-GMO cane sugar. They’ve been making the world a little sweeter since 1843 through both the Imperial Sugar and Dixie Crystal brands.

Check them out on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram… and don’t forget to check out Imperial’s website for sugar coupons, sweet recipes, contests, and more!

Grandma never disappoints! She knows how much I love these brownies, so she always brings me a few when she makes a batch. Aren’t grandmothers the best?

Pour yourself a huge glass of milk to wash down Grandma’s brownies. I dare you to eat just one. (Hint: It’s nearly impossible… you’re going to need a lot of self-control to avoid eating the full pan!)
