Fudge Brownies with Frosting

I have a weak spot. Well I’m sure I have MANY weak spots, but the one I’m referring to is my love for brownies. Both boxed brownies and the ones you can buy pre-made at the store that come frosted. They’re totally unoriginal, but so amazing. They’re my go to treat on a bad day. So I thought it was about time I tried to recreate them myself.

6. While the brownies are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a small pan on the stove, melt the semisweet chocolate over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and powdered sugar with a fork. Add in the melted chocolate.
