The best brownies ever!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. I know I said that the next recipe that I share with you would not be a chocolate one, but whatever. The thing is, chocolate is my thing, ya know. Chocolate, lots of it.
Okay, the recipe: Fudge Cinnamon Brownies:
2 C sugar
2 C flour
1 C butter
7 tbls cocoa
1 C water
1/2 C buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon

Sift together flour, sugar into bowl.
Mix butter, cocoa, and water in a saucepan over med heat, bring to a boil.
Slowly pour mixture over flour and sugar, blending with an electric mixer.
Add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and soda, mix well.
Spread on greased 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 pan.
Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.

Melt 1/2 C butter in saucepan. Add 5 tblsp. cocoa and 6 tblsp milk, stir well.
Bring to a boil, remove from heat and add 1, 1 lb. package of 10x (powdered) sugar and 1 tsp vanilla, beat until smooth and spread over cooled brownies.
Serves about 35.

I know there is three sticks of butter in this recipe, but it is worth it. I have made these many times for parties, showers, etc. I have even had someone come in my house after a BBQ we had, and ask me if they could take some home with them. They are that good!
You won't be sorry!

I came over from A Spoonful of Sugar because of this recipe - sounds wonderful! And sometimes ya just gotta have chocolate. A lot of times, actually. My mother says our family motto is "Do the best you can, then go eat chocolate!"
