Brownie Layer:

Notes

  • I usually start with 3 cups of powdered sugar and then add more if needed to get the desired consistency. I usually end up using 3 1/2 cups and then add an extra splash of evaporated milk if needed.
  • I have also made this with 1/4 cup of butter and it’s still delicious. So if you’re wanting to cut out a little butter, then feel free to.
  • If you’re feeling slightly lazy, it’s ok to not melt the butter. I have made this frosting plenty of times using softened butter . . . just a little tidbit for ya.
