Do you remember those chocolate brownies from Elementary School? When those were on the menu, everyone was so excited! So far, I’ve never seen them at my kids school, but given the amount of sugar in these, it makes total sense.

Lunch Lady Brownies Recipe
- Prep. Grab your baking dish and line it with aluminum foil. I have Non-Stick foil which is super handy. Spray with with cooking spray.
- Mix. Melt two sticks of butter and mix with cocoa powder. Then add the flour and sugar. Last, the eggs and vanilla.
- Bake. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25 minutes.
- Frost. Make the frosting by mixing all the ingredients together and pouring over the warm brownies.
If you want, you can skip the chocolate frosting on top, but it’s highly recommended. These are SUPER rich and chocolatey so make sure you’ve got some milk on hand to serve with them!
Keep these in the fridge and enjoy for up to a week.
