As most of the family knows, the Glewwe family started a grocery store back in the early 1900's. During their hey day in the 1940's they published a cookbook with favorites, not only of family and employees, but of residents from South St. Paul. This is but one entry from this book. I have to smile as the page that this recipe is written on is torn, faded, covered with vanilla stains, written over measurments, torn out and retaped pages. I figure this one must be good. It was submitted by Mabel (Mrs. Arnold) Erickson. To the unsuspecting, Mabel is my great- great aunt, sister to my grandfather, Reuben Glewwe.
Fudge Frosting for Brownies
1 c. brown sugar, packed
3 tb. butter
1/4 c. cream or top milk
1 sq. chocolate
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix ingredients together in a suce pan, boil 2 minutes over moderate heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add vanilla. Beat without cooling until thick enough to spread. Will frost Brownies with a very thin layer. If thicker layer of frosting is desired, use it all on one 8" pan of Brownies. The other pan may be frosted by melting 1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips over hot, not boiling water, and spread on cooled Brownies.
It doesn't get any easier than this.
