Fourth of July Brownies

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

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.
