One of my closest friends is finally pregnant after anxiously waiting many, many years. As you can imagine they are thrilled and I am over the moon excited for the both of them. They are going to make amazing parents and I cannot wait to meet this little bundle of C and C.

This week she passed the three month mark! After this point the risks associated with pregnancy decrease significantly. I decided we should mark the occasion with some homemade brownies to celebrate. (brownies are the key to any pregnant women's heart) Who am I kidding brownies are the key to my heart too!

This is a very quick and easy recipe. Not so healthy, but they sure taste good. Some things are just meant to stay unhealthy (wink)!

Best Brownies Recipe:

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan.
2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.
4. To Make Frosting: Combine 3 tablespoons softened butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa, honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 cup confectioners' sugar. Stir until smooth. Frost brownies while they are still warm.
