melt in your mouth Brownies

I tried to dislike these.
I tried to say they were, 'chocolate but bland.'
I tried to say, 'theses need a strong shot of expresso.'

...these brownies are so moist, and ooooeeeyyyy  gooooeeeyy.  They just melt in your mouth!

These brownies are thin, baked in the 8x8 pan, but they are so rich.

(Adapted from Texas Fudge Brownies found here)

2 eggs
pinch of salt
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla

In separate bowl, melt in microwave:
2 oz chocolate (I used Olive and Sinclair 67% cacao)
1 stick butter
Cool slightly and add to egg mixture while whisking.

1/2 c. flour

Pour into greased 8x8 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.

While the brownies are baking, make the frosting:
Over medium heat, bring to boil:
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1/4 c. whole milk
2 T cocoa powder

1/4 t espresso powder and a pinch of salt to hot butter mixture.
2 c. sifted powdered sugar and mix until smooth

Pour icing over hot brownies immediately after removing from oven.
Let cool completely before cutting; these cut more smoothly after refrigerated (but they taste better at room temperature!)
