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!

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 20-24 minutes. Bake a little longer if you prefer a more chewy brownie.

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!

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Nutcrackers - Nordic Ware Pans

If 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 Cakes

When 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 three 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.
