Lunch Lady Brownies are moist, full of chocolate flavor and absolutely delicious.

Lunch Lady Brownies are the best brownies ever. They’re like the ones the lunch ladies served for school lunch dessert, but this homemade version is better!

I’ve been on a brownie kick lately. I don’t know what’s come over me. Maybe it’s the stress of selling our house (which we finally sold. Yay!) and it could also be the pre-stress of building the new one soon. I’m not quite sure. All I know is that these brownies were sent from heaven above. And that I ate four. For real. πŸ˜‰ 

Lunch Lady Brownies are moist, full of chocolate flavor and absolutely delicious.

These Lunch Lady Brownies are simply incredible. Fudgy, chewy and totally amazing. Apparently, it’s an old recipe from the sweet ladies who served our lunches in Elementary school. I honestly don’t remember the brownies in Elementary school, but I do remember the rolls and the pizza. Do you remember how good those dinner rolls were? After I would eat mine I would go around the lunch table asking everyone else if I could have theirs. Haha.

      1. About the rolls, oh yesssss!! I would trade everything I could on my lunch plate just to get those rolls. They were the best!!!

        1. You would have to bake them longer. I would set the timer for 5 minutes longer and test them. If the toothpick comes out clean, they are done.

        2. Hi Gena: Do the toothpick test at 30 minutes and if still not done bake another 10 minutes check again..

  1. I can totally see why you ate 4…they look incredible! And congrats on selling the house. I hope the building process of your new one goes smoothly!

      1. FYI–I learned from chemistry, no joke that margarine is only ONE molecule away from being plastic. AND even flies won’t touch the stuff. I’m old enough to remember in the 70’s when margarine was seriously the “in thing”. Blahhhh! Now that I’m a grown up and in charge of my own kitchen, nothing but real butter in my fridge.

    1. I’ve made this with real butter and again with margarine. The margarine gave a slightly strange taste to the frosting, but other than that, it was fine.

  2. Oh my I been wanting these for years…these were the best brownies in school..The lunch lady would give me a nice size piece..the icing was to drool for.

    1. And also give me some baking tips because I always end up in not satisfying results …tc
      And congratulations for ur house sale and good luck for building up one πŸ™‚

  3. Made these last night. So good! Almost half the pan is already gone and everyone in my family loves them! Thanks for this recipe!

  4. I am always on the lookout for a great brownie recipe and these are it! My chocolate obsessed 6 year old claimed these to be the “most delicious brownies ever made”! Made them for a party and they were the first to go and everyone was looking for more- yum! Thanks for a great recipe!

  5. So is it just cuz the frosting recipe that you have there came out incredibly thick and difficult to spread is that just how it’s supposed to be?? c

  6. Found your recipe yesterday and made it right away. They were very delicious. But a few people I shared them with weren’t sure if they were brownies or fudge. What would I add/omit to make them more chewy or cakey. Flavor was great though!

  7. These look absolutely amazing! I always loved frosted brownies made from scratch. Thank you for sharing.

  8. These are delicious. My butter probably wasn’t soft enough, but after 15 minutes it wasn’t quite warm enough to make the frosting smooth and melty like that. Or I went too heavy on the powdered sugar. Despite not being as pretty as yours, I will definitely make again. I’d like to try a dark cocoa powder too. These are lovely and milk chocolatey.

    1. My frosting came out more like a paste and I had to use the microwave to get it runny enough to spread onto the brownies. Other then that it was great. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Just made these tonight! Followed your recipe perfectly and they turned out extremely delicious!! Amazing and simple brownie recipe!

  10. Made these this weekend, they are delicious! The best brownies I have ever had. They will forever be my go to brownie recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  11. Made these tonight and they were so easy to whip up and perfectly delicious…thanks for a great recipe to add to my collection!

  12. I tried these the other day, but it seems there is too much flour. It was good, but much more like a cake than brownies.
    I’m not used to the “cup” system. I’m from Europe and we use grams.
    Can you tell me how many grams one cup is supposed to be ?
    Thank you very much πŸ™‚

    1. It depends what you are measuring. 1 cup of butter is 250 grams but other things weigh differently. Just put whatever you want to convert into Google and a result will come up. There are sites that specialize in this. I live in Oz but am Canadian and am forever converting.

  13. Tried these last night and they were amazing! I will not be using a box brownie mix ever again. Thanks!

  14. Kim, I think the only thing that would make these dry is by using too much flour. Be careful on how you are measuring your flour. All you need is 2 cups for this recipe. Hope you try them again, because they really are amazing πŸ™‚

  15. I’ve always been a boxed brownie girl. Not any more! These were so easy, so gooey and so beautiful. I love recipes like this where you frost before its cool. It created such a perfect, different unique frosting. I cut them laugh and got about 15 I think. Look absolutely beautiful

  16. So I made these today. Please know that I do not like brownies. These were amazing!! And so supper easy. Better than a box for sure!!

  17. Made these, they were gorgeous and went down well with everyone. But I added 100g chopped up milk chocolate and a handful of crushed walnuts to the mix. Will only use this brownie recipe in future, thank you! x

  18. I just made these tonight for my girlfriend & I. She says they are the best brownies she’s ever had!
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us✌️

  19. I’m going to try these using gluten-free all purpose flour and dairy-free alternatives. I wish I didn’t but my tummy doesn’t do gluten or dairy without issues anymore. Fingers crossed b/c these look incredible!

      1. Used gluten free flour. Turned out great. Used almond milk, at just room temp, the butter was organic from only grass fed cows from local organic registered farmer. A little grainy when mixed, turned out cake like, but common with gluten free based all purpose flour.going to try 1/4 cup home made COLD applesause to moisten batter a bit for a fudgier texture after baking.

  20. These are the best brownies I’ve ever had!! I’m having to pace myself because I could probably eat the whole pan by myself!!

  21. Hey!!
    I made these yesterday and they came out good but the frosting came out very dark. Any idea why ? Do you think its because of the type of coca?

    Thanks <3

  22. These sound amazing….i was wondering if i could use whole wheat flour instead? Trying to watch my carb intake battling gestational diabetes :/

  23. First homemade brownie recipe I have tried, and these were such a success. Absolutely delicious. It makes the perfect brownie texture… Not too cakey and not too gooey, just perfect. You’re crazy if you don’t give this recipe a try.

  24. I made these yesterday for the first time and will be making them again. I did add a little espresso powder to both the batter and the frosting, about 1 teaspoon each, just enough to enhance the chocolate. I also added a little sea salt after I frosted them for that sweet salty flavor. I will definitely be making them again.

  25. Oh my gosh! These are absolutely luscious. I added milk chocolate chips to the batter. Spread it out on a jelly roll pan, so they were thin. I put the icing in between, and on top with a dollop of cool whip. Heaven! I also used half, and half in place of the milk in the icing, and put it in the fodder processor. The texture is so creamy! Thanks for the recipe.

  26. Hi there, these do seem super delicious and for sure going to make them today. Quick qs- do I line my baking dish with baking paper before pouring the batter? Thanks in advance

  27. I made these brownies for my boyfriends “guys” night. They were to die for. I didn’t want to give them away! So dense, moist and chewy. This recipe is by far the best!

  28. I just made these but I only set my timer for 25 minutes and these are a little dry. I thought that 3 cups of powdered sugar was a little too much so I just used about 2 1/2 and that was fine. I am not sure but wasn’t real happy with these. I usually like mine moist like a cake. thanks for sharing though

  29. These where a hit for an after supper dessert! My two girls, 10 & 8 loved help making them, so easy. They where moist, yummy and simple to make!!

  30. Frosting is too sweet plus mine was grainy cause of powdered sugar.please specify confectionary sugar..Brownie itself turned out more caky than fudgy..

    1. Powdered sugar is confectionary sugar. Did you use granulated? That’s the only way it could come out grainy. The recipe states powdered..

    2. I have used this frosting recipe, my recipe says to cook 3 minutes. Pour on hot brownies and spread. Let cool. Cut brownies ( or at least the frosting) before completely cooled. Frosting is like a fudge when cooled.

  31. I just made these for my son’s spring party tomorrow. Do I need to refrigerate them because of the icing? They smell great!

  32. These were a snap to make, and a hit at my son’s baseball game. Thank you for a delicious, simple recipe! πŸ˜€

  33. I just made them and the entire neighborhood of kids give them a 2 thumbs up! They were sweet and I could drink the frosting!! YUMMY!

  34. These are so delicious! I added a few tsps of espresso powder to enhance the chocolate flavor and it definitely worked! Yum, Yum, Yum!

  35. These were made last night and they are absolutely delicious. We made them according to the recipe. Thank you!

  36. The only brownie recipie you’ll ever need again – FACT. I made these today for the first time….a little bit of heaven on a plate.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart….. from the sunny UK xx

  37. I made these last night! They are lovely, but not a home run for us. I think it was partially due to no salt? Also, without the icing, the brownie itself isn’t super chocolatey or rich. Perhaps I will try again with an addition of salt and mini chocolate chips? Thanks for the recipe! :).

  38. OMG. Best Thing Ever. I added Peter Pan Creamy Peanut butter to the frosting recipe and it was exactly like the cafeteria recipe I had growing up. I have searched for this recipe for almost 30 years with no luck and FINALLY found this!! THANKS!!!

    1. Did you ever have the Peanut Butter Cake? I have that recipe. I thought about adding peanut butter to this to see how it would be. Maybe my next batch. ..

  39. Do you have to line you pan with tin foil in order for the recipe to work? I own a pan specific for brownies and have never lined it besides with cooking spray. :):):)

  40. I made these this morning, followed the recipe exactly (except for sprinkling a few chopped pecans on the icing) They are sinfully delicious! Definitely, a keeper!

  41. Hi Holly, I would like to know if I can half the recipe to make an 8 x 8 pan and how to adjust baking time.
    Thank you,
    I’m a Holly too.

  42. I came across your recipe on Pinterest and can’t wait to try them! Question: are they just as good if I freeze them and thaw before an event? Or do I need to make them day of? Thanks!

    1. Hi Casandra! I have not yet tried freezing these, so I would just say from experience make them the same day. πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy them!

  43. Hreat recipe. I added chocolate chips and pecans to the batter. My husband ate 3 in 5 minutes. I guess they came out good!

  44. I added in a lil bit of my homemade chocolate ganache (semi sweet chocolate,heavy cream, and a dash of chili powder) into both the brownie batter and frosting and it gave it a lil extra sizzle. Img they were so good!!! Also I loaded it with choc. Chips. LOVE the recipe. It will be a hit at my parties! So moist and Delish!

  45. I made this and my mother in law said they were the best brownies she ever ate. My husband ate 4 in the first half hour. They are both choc-o-holics and loved this recipe. I added pecans and chocolate chips to the brownie batter. Same amount of cooking time at 350 degrees.

  46. I had to make these. It’s 945pm and I have been laid up from surgery for 4 weeks. I asked hubby and he’s like ugh no. SO I hobbled into the kitchen and made them. I found the recipe for the Peanut Butter Cake they made in school and now with this I only need the rolls.

  47. Ive actually added Amarula to both the frosting and the mix. I call it Drunken Lunch Lady!
    My family devours it everytime. I just finished making two batches of them for our staff meeting ( one without and one with Amarula)

    *5-6 Cap fulls for the mix and 4 cap fulls for the icing.
    I suggest tweaking it to preference >> excuse to eat the batter πŸ˜‰

  48. I love this recipe is so easy to make and is soooo good, I have to be honest I dont make the frosting I sprinkle powered sugar lightly on top to save a few calories. The brownies are so sweet and chocolaty they are great with no frosting too

  49. These are delish. I bake them in an 8×8 because I like a thick brownie. I add milk though because the batter was way too thick for me. Definitely making again πŸ™‚

  50. I made these today..they are very good..mine also came out more “cake like” thought for people who have been asking is try cutting back by 1 egg..if you read the back of a brownie will say..for more cake like brownies add an additional egg..4 eggs did seem like a lot ..just a thought..they were still yummy

  51. O.M.G.!!!! I just baked these brownies & I can’t tell you how the actual brownies taste but for the love of CHOCOLATE, this frosting is TO DIE FOR!!!! I couldn’t stop eating it…; omg! Yes- for those of you that say it comes out like “paste”, it is in fact SUPER THICK. But I just kept working it with the back of a stainless steel spoon & it came out amazing. I’m surprised I had any frosting left because of how much I ate once I whipped it all together! Puts B.C. Chocolate Frosting to shame!

  52. I just made these, let them cool for a few minutes and frosted them. My entire house smells like a brownie…if they taste as good as they smell (which I have no doubt), they won’t be around long! As a matter of fact, my 13 year old grandson keeps going in there and trying to steal the entire pan. I let him lick the beaters, I told him he doesn’t get any of the brownies, LOL.

  53. While working on my pinning today, I ran across this brownie recipe. I had to start making them right away! Unfortunately, I was out of cocoa powder so I had to run to the grocery store. But it was well worth it. They are really delicious! What I like most is that although they contain a lot of sugar, they are not too sweet or heavy. I’m sending some over to the neighbors so I don’t eat them all! Great recipe! Thanks

  54. I followed the recipe to the thrift. Thru were not chewy. They were completely cooked and fluffy.. did I do something wrong? I cooked them for 25 minutes.

  55. Made these for our Sunday family dinner and boy, were they a BIG hit! Brought back memories for my husband getting them at a bakery in town back in the day. Won’t make them very often becaΓΉse of what’s in them but a great special occasion dessert. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  56. I just frosted these and followed your directions exactly. They look AWESOME. Can’t wait for them to cool, and it was so easy. Thanks for sharing!

  57. I made these brownies today…do NOT ask how many calories are in them! More importantly, I am of the age where our lunch ladies DID make these brownies and now I understand why the portion sizes were what they were! These are SUPER simple to make and turned out WONDERFUL! My daughter who is not a cake or frosting fan…DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHERE SHE GETS THAT FROM…SHE LOVED THIS! It’s nice that they aren’t that processed overly sweet tasting things that you get out of a box mix or the disgusting one’s from the stores bakery section.
    If you follow the recipe, exactly as it states, you will have success with these.
    As far as the dinner rolls go…I have the recipe for those! They are SUPER simple and can be made in a bread machine!
    Thanks for sharing the recipe…you brought back happy memories from my childhood from LONG AGO!

  58. I have made them twice and I am in love β™‘ This will be one of my fireproof, sure to please recipe! I added white chocolate chips and walnuts to the batter and it turned out delicious! BAKE THESE BROWNIES!

  59. Just made these. I used the spoon, tap, level/scrape method for the flour and added 1/8 tsp salt. I made half a batch in an 8×8 and baked 25 minutes. They came out really great! I also added a peanut butter/powdered sugar layer of topping so overall they were a little too rich with the double icing. Lol I cut the half batch into 12 pieces but I think I’d go with 16 next time. And possibly half the icing.

    Thanks for the recipe! It was fast and easy and delicious, so definitely a keeper.

  60. I love this recipe!! I just made them for the second time in two weeks, today being my birthday. πŸ™‚ Anyway, today they are super pebbly. Did I overmix in the butter/flour stage? I’m trying to figure out what happened. I’m still baking them since I’m on a time crunch and will let you know.

  61. I got out my recipe; cause this sounded similar and it is very close to mine. Mine has only 1 c flour and has 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt and 2 TBSP vanilla extract. I will definitely try this!

  62. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. I would love to get the peanut butter cake & dinner roll recipes. Thanks again. Connie

  63. just wondering….for tailgating, would you make Lunch Lady Brownies or Texas Sheetcake (cake, muffins, or cookies)?

    1. Hi Tara! I like to use a plastic knife to cut brownies, and use a sawing motion when cutting. That helps them stay together and look nice πŸ™‚

    I made these this evening and I followed recipe exact, except I just used a hand mixer and lined pan with parchment paper….they turned out perfect and were absolutely delicious…thank you so much

  68. This is my favorite brownie recipe. Reminds me of brownies that came from my favorite bakery that is long gone. The first time i made these And ate that first brownie my eyes welled up with teaRs becaUse so many memories came Flooding back. Ive been using this recipe for over 4 years now and always make sure to keep some aside for myself. My school didn’t serve brownies (we had TX sheet cake) but Snow WHite bakery did and they tasted just like these.

    made these for superbowl and omg they are amazing!!! everybody loved them! Will definitely be making them again! thank you!

    Just made these and so easy, they did turn out more cake like and I used a canned frosting will make the frosting in rec next time. They are very good

  71. I love the brownies, the froSting is the best! Mine always taste great, but look dry aNd Not Moist like yours. What can i do dIfferent? LaSt time i sifted the Flour but it didnt help! PlEase help me!

    Little Rock, Arkansas

    1. Hi Terre! The amount of flour you use is typically what can make brownies moist or not. Even though you’re sifting it you could still be using too much flour depending on how you pack your flour in the measuring cup.

      For me, I first stir my flour in whatever container it’s being held in to loosen it up. Then I do the scoop and sweep method. I scoop the measuring cup into the flour and then sweep the excess off. This has always worked for me. Hope this helps and happy baking! πŸ™‚ xo

  72. 5 stars
    These are amazing! We omitted the frosting,
    And sErved them warm with vanilla ICE CREAM. They are soooo good!

    We just made these & they are the BOMB!!!! So we are kinda new at his learning how to bake thing. I mean what else is there to do but learn how to bake and watch Tiger King. haha

    After just eating 2 of these back to back here is my review. my brownie was more like a cake texture and my icing was runny. Now I was only able to post one pic and some how can’t post another one with you seeing the extra brownie. We followed the recipe to a t.

    some feed back would be helpful so i can master this recipe but hey it’s still good the way ours turned out.

    (Hey Holly somehow my last name was on that comment. Can you please delete that one?)

  74. This recipe calls for all purpose flour but does not call for salt or baking powder or baking soda. Should any of thes3 ingRedients be added?

  75. Yum! I cant wait to make these! Does anyone reme kickapoo bars? Thise were my favo hot lunch treat. I have been looking for years but have had any luck.
    Thank you for shar this!!

    Made these this evening and they were delicious! Super easy and just what i was looking for in comfort food during these difficult times of social distancing.

  77. 4 stars
    These brownies are the best I have ever tasted!! I will never use another recipe. Put the frosting on when they are still a little warm and it forms a delicious glaze on top. I’m going to go home and make some of these brownies!!

    1. Hi Jennifer, the dryness could most likely be from over-flouring. I do the scoop and sweep method when measuring flour. I never pack it.
      I’m sorry yours turned out dry though. I hope you try them again! πŸ™‚

    I could make these and i am 12! They are so much better then regular brownies and really easy to make! πŸ™‚

    My granddaughter wanted brownies sO i decided to try this recipe. We both loved them; they did not Disappoint. I only baked mine for 20 minutes. Next time I will pr obably check them around 17 minutes. The icing recipe is similar to the one i use for texas chocolate cake so i made it the Same way – melted the butter over medium heat, added the chocolate and stirred until smooth. I then removed from heat, added the milk and stirred again until the milk was incorporated and the miXtUre was comBined and slightly shiny. I then added a teaspoon of vanilla, stirred and added the powdered sugar. I then beat the icing on high until smooth and combineD.

  81. This Has become my Go-to brownies recipe and they are a hit With Everyone. Easy to make and so delicious.

    1. I have never tried it, but I think it would work. I would just make sure to use a large sheet pan. Like a 17 inch sheet pan. I would also check them after 15 to 20 minutes for doneness because baking them in a sheet pan they will be thinner, so they may not need as long to bake. Please let me know if you try it! πŸ™‚

    1. Yes! These brownies freeze well! When we want to eat them after they’ve been frozen we just pop one in the microwave for a few seconds!

  82. 5 stars
    These are really good! This is the second time making them. This time I only had about a cup of powdered sugar for the frosting so I cut the amount by a third. It was enough to do the pan and we liked them better with not quite so much frosting!

  83. 5 stars
    This is ptobably my 5th time using this recipe, it’s bevome my go-to, these are absolutely delicious, They melt in your mouth, and the frosting adds that little crunch. Depending on how thick the brownies are I’d recommend not keeping them im the oven for the full 30minutes, mine are usually done between 15-25 minutes ☺️

  84. Holly
    I enjoy all of your great recipes thank you for them. These brownies I have made several times for my family and for friends always get great comments on how good they are. Just this past weekend made a pan and sent them with a friend to take back to Georgia .

  85. 5 stars
    This is my go to BROWNIE. Love, love them. I add dried cranberries and walnuts. Sometimes just walnuts but add 1/4 c of peanut butter to icing.

  86. Hi, Can i bake these in individual muffin tins? I think THEY’LL look nicer on the cookie platter that way. I ABSOLUTELY love these.

  87. My family became my taste testers one more time! I made the lunch lady brownies, not my usual recipe. Wow!!! My family loved them! The icing part was as easy as the brownies! Thank you so much, for posting a great recipe!!!!

  88. 4 stars
    OMG chocolate heaven!

    I made it as written, but found that there wasn’t enough milk in the frosting. That’s easily remedied next time though, as these will be made again!

    Really good! My frosting came out darker than yours. Very thick batter and frosting, but spreadable. I added a pinch of salt to batter and frosting. Will definitely make this again. Already shared Recipe with 2 friends.

    I made these Brownies the other day and………. wow, these are soooo good! So moist and tasty, WILL BE MAKING THEM AGAIN SOON.

    1. Either works fine! If you store on the counter just make sure they are wrapped up. They should stay good for a couple of days left that way. In the fridge they’ll last a few days longer πŸ™‚

  96. Make sure to add 1 teaspoon of salt to this recipe! It just isn’t the same without it. Also, double the recipe and bake in a cookie sheet (jelly roll) pan – it makes a party!

  97. 4 stars
    They are pretty good! Very glad I made the frosting. The brownies are very dense but still yummy with the frosting!

    They work great as Brownie cupcakes too! I followed the same recipe but the only cooked them for about 20 minutes instead!

    I have made these brownies at least 100 times, and they are scarfed up every single time!!, So good and moist and chocolately!!

    Now, about those lunch rolls!! They were SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD!! And in high school, the sweet ladies would make them into cinnamon rolls on Fridays! Oh my goodness! I think the rolls were 0.15 each day, and I’d get a glass of sweet tea for a quarter, so my lunch would be 40 cents! But on Fridays, I believe the cinnamon rolls were 25 cents so I’d spend a whopping 50 cents for my lunch. The cinnamon rolls and the ice tea were both extra large! (That’s been over 40 years ago, and I still remember how good they were!)

    1. Amy, I loved your comment! Yes, our lunch rolls were so good too! I used to ask everyone at the lunch table if I could eat their roll. lol Yum, I am sure those cinnamon rolls were awesome! Thanks for your cute story!

    Made this recipe. Used a little less sugar, about 1/4 c less. Still delicious. Didnt use frosting recipe bc my family prefers them plain. So i sifted powder sugar over top for the look mainly. Wonderful brownie recipe .

    made them around Christmas thought it was more like chocolate cake so made them again with half the flour it calls for and turned out more brownie like. super easy love this recipe.
