Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Cookies: FROSTED CINNAMON #BROWNIES from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is FROSTED CINNAMON BROWNIES!

Who doesn’t love chocolate with a zip of cinnamon? This recipe is a nice twist on the traditional brownies. It’s full of sweetness, though, so you’ll want to moderate your servings…especially for the kidlets. No bouncing the little darlings off the walls, right? Well, unless you’re Grandma and sending them home shortly after filling their caffeine and sugar quota. Snort.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
