Best Cake Brownies

This recipe caught my eye because it uses a whole can of chocolate syrup! I had searched for years for a brownie everyone likes, and this is it. My husband takes them to work, and they're gone in no time. They cut nicely after cooling a bit, but we don't often wait to dig in.


3 dozen brownies

Brownie Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
4 eggs
1 (16 ounces) can chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Glaze Ingredients

1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup milk
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup miniature marshmallows


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in chocolate syrup and vanilla. Add the flour and salt until blended. Pour into prepared baking pan.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (top of brownies will still appear wet). Cool on a wire cooling rack for 15 to 20 minutes.

For glaze: Combine sugar, butter and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows until melted. Pour over the brownies and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 5 minutes before cutting.
