These Fudge Brownies are a rich and delightful treat.
Brownies are a staple dessert that everyone has had at some point in time. The unfortunate part is it is not uncommon to find brownies that are not so great. They can easily be too dense, taste too much like flour, or just be way too dry. We can ensure you that these Fudge Brownies are none of that.
We started with a simple base. The base has melted butter to ensure we get every inch of sugar and flour coated in buttery goodness. The butter being melted also helps keep these brownies moist. The base gets quickly mixed together in stand mixer and bakes for just 15 minutes or so. This short bake time also helps ensure that the brownies don’t get too overcooked resulting in the burnt cocoa taste and once again way too dry!
Where these brownies take the flavor to a new level is with the simple fudge layer to go on top. This is super easy to make in just one saucepan while the brownies are baking in the oven. This layer of fudge brings another layer of flavor to the base that is creamy, chocolate goodness. It is worth nothing that this recipe can easily be doubled to fit in a 9×13 pan. Also, if you would rather a little less fudge you can easily half the fudge topping for the 8×8 pan or when making it in a 9×13 keep the fudge ingredients the same versus also doubling.
These delicious Fudge Brownies can be made in so little time and using staple ingredients you probably already have on hand! We would love to hear how your Fudge Brownies turned out!
