You will NEVER believe what this frosting is made out of. Are you ready? Okay here it goes…AVOCADO! I know – crazy stuff. It’s creamy, rich, chocolatey, and overall just amazing.  The brownies themselves are incredible too. I have a pro tip for you – while the brownies are delicious just out of the oven, they are even more amazing after being chilled in the fridge. They transform from a good brownie that’s just a brownie to something that is super rich and incredibly fudgy.

Happy baking!
