Cook Time: 30 minutes


1 ½ cup lowfat milk, divided
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons lowfat milk
½ cup chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour ½ cup milk in small bowl. Add vinegar and let sit 5 minutes. Whisk in baking soda and eggs until frothy. Set aside.

In saucepan over medium heat, mix cocoa, 1/3 cup butter and 1 cup milk. Whisk until butter is melted. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, mix flour and sugar. Pour in cocoa mixture and beat well. Pour in egg mixture and beat well. Add vanilla and beat until smooth.

Pour batter into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until tests clean with a toothpick. Cool completely.

For frosting, combine 4 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons milk in saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until melted. Add in chocolate chips, stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and beat until frosting consistency (if too thick, thin with another teaspoon of milk.) Frost brownies and cut into 32-inch pieces.
