HO HO Brownies
Yummy chocolate treat great for a crowd!

Ho Ho Brownies

1 cup water, 1/2 pound butter, 1/4 cup cocoa

Place above ingredients in medium saucepan and boil ( low boil) until slightly thick, then cool to lukewarm.

Mix together the following dry ingredients:
2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cup flour,1 tsp.Baking Soda,1 tsp. Vanilla,1/4 tsp. Salt
Add 1/2 cup Buttermilk

Add to lukewarm cocoa mixture and mix until smooth.
Spread into jelly roll pan ( I use 18x12 cookie sheet with 1 inch sides). Spray with Pam or lightly grease first. Bake 350 degrees 20 minutes.

Beat 2 cup Confectioner's sugar, 1/2 cup Crisco shortening,( you could use butter here, but the shortening is lighter and more authentic for the childhood treat of Ho Ho's) and a dash of salt.

Add 1/2 cup milk, 1 TBL. water and 2 tsp. vanilla for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add additional 1 1/2 cup confectioer's sugar and beat well. Spread on COOLED brownie layer, chill while you make the frosting.

In small saucepan, Boil 1 cup sugar, 6 TBL Butter, 6 TBL milk for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips and beat whil cooling in a bowl of ice water. * Add more butter or more milk if needed to achieve proper consistency. The mixture should be spreadable, thick and shiny. Spread over chilled white filling on cake. Cover pan with foil and chill until ready to serve.

Customer Reviews

I stumbled across the cookie website about 4 months ago and since then I have been a weekly customer. I fell in love with their shortbread, their gingerbread and now I have also fallen in the love with the other cookies as well..namely the chocolate chip cookies. I love this company and their products are phenomenal. The packaging is exquisite and I feel like they really go out of their way to make the customer experience a delightful one. I am a lifelong customer. Thank you Country Cupboard Cookies for having extraordinary products. W.E. Albany, GA. Always a big hit when I send Country Cupboard cookies!

M.A. Toledo, OH.Fast Service....great price......great Cookies....will certainly use again, Thank you.Dan O. Wonderful product (best cookies I've ever tasted), wonderful service, and excellent shipping. Will definitely use again and recommend to family & friends.K.S. Pittsburgh, PA. I have been using Country Cupboard Cookies for several years now, and everyone who receives them raves about how good they are. I have a neighbor who does odd jobs for me, and at his request his only payment is to keep the cookies coming! J.C. New Cumberland, PA Yummy x 10!E.E. Corona, CA This is a great business to buy from. The cookies are great and they do a very nice presentation. The delivery is fast also. I have bought from this company the past 3-4 yrs. and have always been very pleased with everything.M.K. Glenshaw, PA. Great cookies delivered as promised! Sent to my son who is a "chocolate chip expert", and he gives them a rating of excellent. The snack packs are great for his lunch D.F. Chula Vista,CA Our son (AKA the Cookie Monster) and his wife have raved about the Country Cupboard Cookies we've sent them in the past. So we decided to send ourselves a box, to see whether the recipients were just being polite or whether the cookies were really good. WOW! They are fantastic -- even better than homemade. We especially like the way they are packaged in two-cookie sets that you can freeze. and then thaw them when you need a boost. Just pop a couple of frozen cookies in the microwave for 15 seconds or so, and they come out smelling and tasting like you just baked them. The instructions come with the cookies. Try 'em, you'll like 'em! K.M. Springfield, VA
