1/2 C. Butter
1/3 C. Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
3/4 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
3 Tbsp. Butter
1/3 C. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp. Milk
1 C. Confectioners Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cocoa and Cinnamon, for dusting
Directions1. Preheat the oven to 350F, and grease an 8x8 inch pan. Lay a strip of parchment paper across the pan to help lift the brownies.
2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until you have a smooth mixture. Add the dry ingredients, stirring vigorously to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, then remove from the oven to cool. Prepare the glaze: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, then add the cocoa powder and milk, stirring to combine. Gradually add the confectioners sugar, stirring vigorously until you have a smooth, thick-but-pourable consistency.
4. Slice the cooled brownies into squares, then spoon glaze over the tops, allowing it to run over the sides if you like. Dust the tops of the brownies with cocoa and cinnamon.
