Recipe Thursday #29: Chocolate Buttermilk Brownies

I just took a giant bite of these and I do think they may the best thing I've ever made! I am seriously in danger of eating the whole pan by myself. This is not good. But these are so good! It's a horrible predicament!

Chocolate Buttermilk Brownies with Chocolate Buttermilk Icing

  • 2 cups sugar (I used raw)
