Glazed Chocolate Chip Brownies

2/3 cup butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup baking cocoa
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup water
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 ¼ cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the butter, eggs, and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add to butter mixture. Stir in water and chocolate chips until blended.

Pour into a greased 13-in x 9-in x 2-in baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until brownies pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool on a wire rack.

In a small saucepan, combine the chips, milk and butter. Cook until melted; stir until smooth. Remove from the heat; whisk in the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or until chilled; frost brownies. (I just poured the mixture on the brownies right after I mixed it together. ) Cut into bars.
