The difference between brownies and cookies is that brownies use liquid fat like melted butter or oil. Cookies use cold fat that is creamed with the sugar.

Brownies are very easy to make:

4 oz (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts if you'd like.

Preheat oven to 350F
Mix together butter, sugar, vanilla.
Add eggs.
Stir together all dry ingredients
Add dry to wet ingredients.
Spread batter in a greased pan.
Bake until the brownie starts to pull from the sides of the pan, about 20 mins.

Creamy frosting:
3 Tbsp butter, melted
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 Tbsp corn syrup or honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp Milk

Combine all ingredients, adjusting with milk or cocoa for desired consistency.

A fantastic place to get great tasting chocolate brownies is to go to Sobo Chocolate

I enjoy chocolate brownies of course but a nice twist is to chop up candied ginger in very small pieces and add it to your mixture.
Apply a thin layer of french chocolate icing, then garnish with thin strips of candied ginger on top in the design of an X. Great taste with a nice twist.

From the source :History of Brownies

"Have you ever wondered about the how brownies originated as you baked up a batch or took your first bite?
The exact history is difficult to reconstruct for brownies. There are many conflicting stories regarding the origin of brownies and how they came to be.
Brownies are thought to be of US origin, the name derived from their color (brown) and from the mythical pixie-like characters common in children's stories from the same time period. One story suggests that brownies were invented at the Palmer House in Chicago in 1892.
The first recipe for "brownies" dates back to the 1896 Boston Cooking School Cookbook for molasses cakes baked in individual pans - a far cry from what we think of as brownies.
The earliest published recipe for chocolate brownies appears to have been for "Bangor Brownies" back in the Boston Daily Globe (1905). Some contend they may have originated when baking powder was inadvertently left out of a chocolate cake batter, resulting in a 'cake' that didn't rise but tasted great.
It is speculated that the careless cook may have lived in Bangor, Maine - thus the name, "Bangor Brownies." This is my personal favorite story since my parents grew up close to Bangor, ME, giving me a connection to the area, and thus to the story.
Chocolate brownies didn't become widely popular until the 1920s, when chocolate became more readily available."

Just some info....

THANK YOU ChefToddMhor.At last i have a recipe for brownies that doesnt include using stacks of 70' chocolate.

My youngest (16) often wants to make them and i only let him on special occassions as he uses all my chocolate stash... So you can make them with just cocoa. Woo hoo!
