This recipe for Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies is one we make just about every month at our house. Decadent, chewy, fudgy brownies that are easy to make and oh so good!

Chewy Chocolate Fudge Brownies(Post modified with new photos on 2/2/23.)

It’s an easy throw-together brownie recipe to use when you’re craving chocolate or just need a last minute dessert to share with family or friends. It’s perfect for potluck dinners as well.

Just stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl, pour into an oblong cake pan and bake for 25-35 minutes. Bake a little longer if you prefer a more chewy brownie.

Hosting a Christmas Tea PartyThis is also a fun recipe to use with specialty shaped pans, such as Christmas tree mini cake pan or a Nutcracker cake pan. I’ve made both for Christmas entertaining and they always go over really well. To make them even more decadent, cover them with ganache. For more information, see my notes at the bottom of this post.

A Note About The Ingredients

Ghirardelli bittersweet baking chips

I recently upgraded this recipe by using Ghirardelli Premium Dutch-Process Baking Cocoa AND Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Chips. Let me tell you–this made a tremendous difference in the recipe. My family RAVED about how good they were. Truly, they did!

Yes, Ghirardelli baking cocoa and bittersweet chocolate chips are more expensive, but in this case, it was well worth the money! In fact, I’ll probably save this baking cocoa to use exclusively for these brownies!

 

Let’s Take Things Even Further!

Bake Brownie Nutcrackers using this RecipeIf you’re interested in going even further with this recipe, why not turn these delicious brownies into Christmas Nutcrackers or little Christmas Trees?

Simply spoon the batter into a specialty pan (that has been greased and floured, or sprayed with Baker’s Joy) and bake as directed in the recipe. My baking time for said creations did not change that much. Just check to see how things are going in the oven 5-7 minutes sooner and go from there.

Chocolate Fudge Brownies with Ganache Topping - Mini Christmas Tree CakesWhen I made these lovelies for a recent tea party, I notched it up even more by dipping the tops in ganache (1 cup heavy whipping cream + 8 oz. chocolate chips). I think the ganache kept the brownies even more moist–up to five days later! They were heavenly!

But seriously, be warned…these brownies are a chocolate-lover’s dream! 

Serve these brownies with a big glass of milk or with some vanilla ice cream. Makes 24 brownies.
