Fudgy Maple Brownies

These fudgy maple brownies are a perfect blend of rich fudge like chocolate and sweet maple syrup. They're topped with a sweet, decadent chocolate maple frosting.

Preheat the oven to 325 F (165 C). Move the middle rack to the lower third of the oven. Line a 8x8" (22cm) pan with parchment paper.

Step 1:  

Gently melt chopped chocolate and butter. Pour in the sugar, maple syrup and salt. Stir well to fully combine the ingredients.

Step 2:  

Pour the cooled mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment. On low, beat in the eggs. Fold in the flour. Mix until smooth and well combined. A chocolate "ribbon" should fall into the bowl when the paddle is lifted. 

Step 3:  

Evenly pour/scoop the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 F (165 C) in the lower third of the oven for 25- 40 minutes.

Step 4:  

Cool the brownie in the pan on a cooling rack for 30-45 minutes or until room temperature. While the brownies cool, make the maple frosting.

Step 5:  

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted chocolate with the cocoa powder, maple syrup and 1 tbsp milk. If needed, add 1-3 tsp. more milk until a pourable consistency is achieved.

Step 6:  

Spread the frosting on top of the cooled brownies. Freeze the brownies in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to fully set the frosting. Slice and enjoy!
