Fourth of July Brownies

Fourth of July is really big in our town. And it’s one of our families favorite holidays. I thought it would be fun to have a week long celebration, so be sure to visit everyday for great food, decorating, and fun!

Here is a quick and easy recipe for brownies. I found it at, it went together very easy and they tasted really good.


1 c. Butter

2 c. White Sugar

1/2 c. Cocoa Powder

1 t. Vanilla

4 Eggs

1 1/2 c. Flour  (some of the comments suggested less flour, I used 1 c. and they turned out fine, I may try them with a little more next time)

1/2 t. Baking Powder

1/2 t. Salt

1/2 c. Walnuts  (I left these out)

Melt the butter, then stir in remaining ingredients in order listed.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes in a 9×13 pan. (I baked mine at least 40 min. I don’t know if it was because the recipe is off or because I baked them in a stoneware pan)

After they cooled, I tinted frosting blue and red, melted it in the microwave a few seconds and drizzled it on top of the brownies. I also sprinkled some of them with Fourth of July sprinkles.

    They are lovely. My mother’s birthday (she will be 85) is on July 4th. I want to make her something special, this is the first b-day in 5 years I have celebrated with her. She’s not a chocolate fan though!
