Fudge Brownies

Fudge Brownies: Rich and chocolaty with a creamy, fudgy topping…The brownie recipe everyone needs in their collection.


I love to  take food to gatherings and be able to share it with people. However, I have a ongoing list (it’s kinda a mental list, but still a list) of recipes to try. Yet, when it’s our turn to make food for our small group I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO MAKE. Then, I wait until three hours before group starts to go to the grocery store, run around like a mad woman and rush home and make something.  I am indecisive, that’s my problem. I wanted to make something with pumpkin, but not everyone likes pumpkin. So, I decided on brownies. I wanted to keep it very basic so I didn’t make these. Rather, I made plain fudge brownies. I say plain because I thought about adding in nuts, or mint pieces, but for the sake of feeding 12 adults I figured it was best to just keep it simple. So these made an appearance at group this week!recipeforfudgybrownies

Food is trendy and with food trends I think we sometimes forget about our basic recipes. The recipes that are the heart and soul of baking.  You like my sentiment, there? 

Back to the brownies. This recipe is great to have on hand because it is easy to throw together if you’re short on time..or like me and don’t’ decide what to make until the last minute. {AHEM} 

These brownies are rich and decadent and only a little piece is needed to fill your sweet tooth. Less calories that way, too. Wait, there’s no calories in brownies!! AMIRIGHT?!?
