Ingredients

    Batter

  • 1 ½ cups lowfat milk divided
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⅔ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Frosting

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

Directions

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, ⅓ 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.

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.
