Brownie Icing?

I am looking for a recipe for Icing for brownies. You know, the fudgy type icing, not like the icing you put on cakes, but the icing you find on brownies, lol.

Here's another one that I have included in an icing list of mine but I've never tried it.


Chocolate Walnut Icing
1 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
PREPARATION:

In a large mixing bowl, blend butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; beat well with a spoon. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually blend into wet mixture. Stir in pecans. Spread batter in lightly greased and floured 8- or 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes, or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. Prepare icing and frost while brownies are still warm.
Icing
Place powdered sugar in medium mixing bowl. Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in 2 tablespoons of cocoa, blending until smooth. Add milk; stir constantly over low heat until mixture has thickened slightly. Pour hot mixture over the powdered sugar; beat until smooth. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. Spread warm icing over still-warm brownies.

I either cheat and use the frosting in the can to frost brownies, or if you want a harder frosting I melt chocolate chips or candy kisses and spread on brownies and when it cools its hard again ,the consistency as it was before. Also here is a simple frosting

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups XXX sugar
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee

Cream the sugar and butter, gradually adding the coffee and cocoa until well blended. If you like a coffee flavor this is pretty good.

You didn't ask for a brownie recipe, but I'm going to include it. This is a really old recipe and I have made it so many times that I don't have to look at the recipe. My son is now 41 and he started making them when he was about 10 and still makes them for his children.

BROWNIES
Beat 1/4 lb. softened margarine
1 cup sugar
Add 4 eggs - 1 at a time
1 teas. vanilla
1 (1 lb. can) Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1 cup plus 1 Tbls. flour
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped, optional

Bake 350F for 30 minutes in a jelly roll pan. Take out of oven and immediately start frosting.

6 Tbls. margarine, 6 Tbls. milk and 1-1/2 cup sugar. Stir to combine, bring to a boil stirring, stop stirring and boil for 1/2 minute. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Stir until melted and starts to thicken. Spread on brownies.

(I put the pan in cold water after chips are melted and stir until starting to get thick. Don't let it get too thick or it will turn to sugar.

If you make them, I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has all these years.

Monnie
