Super Brownies


Why are these brownies super? Supergirl decided that she wanted to make something all by herself and Z-man and I were craving some brownies so Supergirl said she would make them for us, so… Super Brownies!

First step is to prepare the pans. Supergirl traced out on parchment paper some liners for the pans


In a large bowl mix the flour and cocoa together. Supergirl had fun digging deep into the bag for the flour


the cocoa was much easier


Supergirl was a little nervous over the next step never having really done anything over a hot element on her own but she was game for it


This is melted butter and sugar, and it can get HOT so be careful. 

While the butter and sugar are melting together you can break the eggs (Supergirl’s favorite part of the whole process I think) into the dry mix

Pour the melted butter and sugar into the mix (and again, be careful it is sticky and hot. Nothing is worse than a hot sugar burn, trust me)

Mix all this up and the yummy factor jumps up by a gazillion

If you can resist eating this as is, pour it into the two pans that were prepared earlier

The next step is to put the pans into the oven. Supergirl had some serious hesitation staring into the open door of a hot oven but she stepped up and put the pans in (a proud Daddy moment. sniff)

Supergirl closed the oven and grabbed the measuring cup and wouldn’t share

Now, the next step Supergirl just flat out refused to do, said the beater makes too much noise so Dad stepped in and made some chocolate butter cream frosting.

By this time the brownies should be finished, take them out and leave them on a wire rack to cool before spreading the icing

Supergirl came back to spread the icing (and lick the spatula afterwards of course!)

Slice em up and see how long they last
