Brownies With Fudge

Homemade fudge brownies will always pass the taste test over boxed brownies no matter what the brand. Yes, it does take longer to prepare homemade fudge brownies from scratch, but the difference can be found in a simple taste test. By taking the time to make homemade brownies with fudge, you will be treating your family to a dessert that is well worth the effort.


9 X 13 baking dish
Double boiler
2 sticks butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
Wire whisk
Mixing bowl
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups dark chocolate chips


Grease a 9 X 13 inch baking dish with butter or lard. Set the dish aside. 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


Melt 2 sticks of butter in the upper portion of a double boiler over low heat. Add in 2 1/4 cups of sugar and stir. Continue to heat over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.


Whisk together 4 eggs, 1 1/4 cups cocoa, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract.


Add the hot sugar butter mixture and stir until smooth.


Stir in 1 1/2 cups of flour and 2 cups of dark chocolate chips. 


Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.


Cool, cut into squares and serve.

Words to the Wise:
Take care not to over bake the brownies as this can lead to a dry, crumbly texture.

These brownies are designed to be gooey. Provided they are cooked for the recommended amount of time, the brownies will be done.

You can add up to 1 teaspoon of espresso powder to intensify the chocolate taste.
