The BEST Fudge Brownies You’ll EVER Make – Pinky Swear!

The BEST Super Fudge Brownies

Like you, I’ve made my share of brownies over the years – some good and some bad.  While the good ones were just that, they were never what I’d call the ooey gooey type of brownie I was constantly in seach of.

Until…

I cracked open my Mrs. Fields Cookie Book and decided to try the Super Fudge Brownies recipe. These brownies are SERIOUSLY the BEST brownies I’ve ever made!

F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!

Holy cow, these brownies are SO moist it’s not funny!  Super Fudge Brownie is a VERY appropriate name!  I highly recommend this brownie recipe for anyone who like moist and super Chocolaty brownies. I’ll even go so far as to say this will be the ONLY brownie recipe I’ll make from now on.

These are simply the best - Chocolate heaven!!!

Now, let’s make the BEST brownies…

Brownies ingredientsThe ingredients…

spray baking pan

and the lucky (sprayed) baking dish that will hold them.

unsweetened baking chocolate

Combine unsweetened baking Chocolate…

add butter

and butter in a medium saucepan.

stir until melted

Melt over medium-low heat and stir until…

melt chocolate like this

melted.  Remove from heat and stir until smooth.

add eggs in a bowl

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed…

beat eggs

beat eggs until…

fluffy eggs

light yellow in color – about 5 minutes.

add sugar

Add sugar.

beat eggs until fluffy

Blend on low until thoroughly combined.

add vanilla

Add vanilla.

add chocolate

And melted Chocolate to the egg and sugar mixture.

blend in chocolate

Blend on low speed until smooth.

mixed chocolate

Like this.  Ignore the bubbles, they’re fine.

mix in flour

Add the flour.

mix chocolate and flour

And mix thoroughly.

blended chocolate

Like this.  Yuuuuum!!!

pour brownie mixture into pan

Pour batter into greased pan.  Geez, I so wanted to pour it straight into my mouth!!!  DROOL!!!

lick the spatula

Crap!  I have competition in the spoon-licking department!  Oh well, the kid DOES need to eat!  HA!

smooth brownie mixture with a spoon

Smooth the surface with a spatula – if not being LICKED! (Ahem, oh dear daughter of mine!) – or a spoon.

add chocolate chips

Sprinkle uniformly with Chocolate Chips!

chocolate chips on brownie batter

Oh man, this is gorgeous!

chocolate heaven

Sorry, I had to look at it one more time before baking.  Wow, these are going to be some awesome brownies!

put brownies in oven

Bake @ 300*on the center rack of the oven for 45-55 minutes until the batter  sets and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Do NOT overbake! I know, my oven needs cleaning… someday.

cool brownies at room temp

Cool at room temperature.  The recipe then says to cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then cut and serve chilled. HA!  Are they serious?  What self-respecting Chocoholic is going to wait THAT long? NOT me! We ate these puppies within MINUTES of removing them from the oven.

DUH!

The BEST super fudge brownies!

We burned out tongues a little from the super hot Chocolate Chips, but as you can see, it was completely worth it.  These are absolutely the BEST ooey gooey, SUPER moist fudge brownies – hands down! Mrs. Fields, I thank you from the bottom of my Chocolaty heat!  I truly do!  What a treat!

As always, ENJOY!!!

      They are SO easy to make. I hope you do find some time to make them because they are VERY good. We’ve made them twice now and they were just as good the second time! My 11-year-old daughter liked them so much she wanted to make some with her friend (which they did all by themselves) so they can them to their teachers. CUTE!!! LUCKY TEACHERS!!!

      I kid you not these are to DIE for. I hate that word – DIE – but these brownies are so moist and almost fudge like, they are D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! We’re made them twice now and my 11-year-old daughter and her friend even made another batch all by themselves so they could take them to all their teachers. It was so funny, i picked up my daughter after work this afternoon and she said her math teacher announced in the 6th grade “wing” of the school, “Allison makes the BEST brownies in the whole world!” How awesome is that!

      It put a smile on my face, for sure! I surehope you do find the time to make them. They really are easy and SO worth it.

      I didn’t have any baker’s chocolate either, so I used cocoa powder! 3 tbs cocoa powder + 1 tbs oil = 1 square of baking chocolate! I used that equation six times, and my brownies taste wonderful!

    I have this exact recipe and have been making it for over 10 years now!!! These are to die for! The process that goes into making these are pretty much the reason that made me fall in love with baking! The way they eggs turn color after beating them for so long, then the shininess that happens after you add the sugar! Awesome! So I have to ask, I know exactly where my recipe came from (ours are to a T the same)….. where did you find yours?

      Yes, you can use unsalted butter if that is all you have or are trying to reduce your salt intake. The flavor won’t be as rich, but it should be OK. I hope this helps! :) Enjoy!

      Oh no! Did you bake them at 300* F and in a baking dish that’s approximately 9″ x 13″? That’s odd that it baked so unevenly. I’ve made this recipe several times and have never had that happen.

      Actually, I apologize because I might not have indicated the baking dish size. If your dish was smaller, then the batter was probably too thick, causing it to cook on the outside and not bake in the middle. Phooey!

      I need to go back and put this recipe in my recipe plug-in that was added with the new design last winter. Then all the directions would be in one spot. I’m sorry! These really are the best fudge brownies I’ve had to date.

      Thanks, Farheen, for your feedback. I really appreciate it! :)

      Hi Carlos! I used Baker’s brand for the chocolate squares and Nestle’s Chocolate Chips! ANY chocolate will work, but the better they taste (in other words, not cheap stuff), the better the brownies will taste!

      Yea, I was wondering the same. From the photos it looks like a 9×13 pan is being used, but the recipe says 8×8, and that it yields 16 pieces (2in squares) which means it’s 8×8. I’m confused :/ I need to make these today..

    • Laura Rucker replied: — August 18th, 2012 @ 3:03 PM

      Hi guys! I just double checked the recipe in my cookbook and it does says to use an 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Mine is a little bigger than that and they turned out just fine, just a little thinner from top to bottom they would be in the recommended dish size.

    SERIOUSLYYY THE BEST BROWNIE RECIPE… EVER!

    I, too, struggled to find the perfect brownie recipe. After some disappointments and some mediocre ones, I finally found one I will keep making.

    Some substitutions I made: I didn’t have the unsweetened baking squares, so I used the semi-sweet baking squares, and used instead of 2 cups sugar like 1 3/4 cups. I also used unsalted butter b/c that’s all I had- and added like 2 teaspoons salt to the recipe.
    It wasn’t as dark chocolatey as I imagined but everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE, in my family loved them – they aren’t too into dark chocolate anyway.. more like milk chocolate type of people.

    Nonetheless…. great recipe and thanks for sharing!

    Hi,

    I found just found your blog the other day while searching for a good brownie recipe…and yours looks delicious, can’t wait to try them. Just a quick question, it says to use an 8×8 baking pan, however the one you are using looks bigger. The reason for my question is that I have other sizes of baking pans, would it affect the recipe is we don’t use an 8×8? Any suggestions if I use other size (9×13?)

    I’m baking this tomorrow for my xmas party, it would be awesome if I could have an answer by then.

    Thanks, love your blog!

    • Laura Rucker replied: — December 16th, 2012 @ 3:15 PM

      Sorry, yes, an 8″x8″ pan will work fine too. Thanks for pointing this out to me. I just updated the recipe to reflect this. :)

      You may need to bake the brownies longer if you use a smaller pan because they will be thicker/taller, if that makes sense. Just check the brownies 10 minutes prior to the completed baking time by inserting a toothpick in the the center of the pan. Keep checking every 5 minutes or so to see how they’re baking and remove from the oven once you get a clean toothpick after inserting it in the center of the brownies.

      I hope this helps and have a GREAT Christmas party! :)

    I’ve made this brownie recipe twice and it has lived up to it’s name! I made a slight change the second time and put a layer of caramels, pecans, and semi-sweet chocolate chips in the middle and layered more brownie mix on top of that. And on top of that more melted caramel candies with more pecans! Yu-um! Wish I could post a pic of all the happy faces today that loved the brownies….with vanilla ice cream!

      Hello there! The answer to your question is actually right on the back of the Hershey’s Cocoa can.

      Here goes:

      3 level tablespoons cocoa powder + 1 tablespoon shortening, butter, or oil = 1-ounce unsweetened baking chocolate.

      I hope this helps! Please let me know how this turns out since I have yet to try this method. Have a great day! :D

    I have had the cookbook that this recipe is in for 20 yrs and haven’t had one bad recipe from it. I’m wondering if Bridget either reduced or forgot the sugar, as there’s no way they are bitter.

    How would the bubbles make a difference? They are only there from whipping the eggs a little. Once you blend in the other ingredients and give it a good stir, things are fine. It’s a basic brownie recipe. If they concern you, you can band the pan on the counter a little bit once you’ve put the batter into it and smoothed the top. I’d also check your oven if they were overbaked, it’s possible that the thermostat is off.

    Hi! This looks yummy, I’d love to try this! But I have a question. What is the thickness of your brownies when it is not yet cooked? I’d be using smaller pan (not 9″ x 13″) for my small oven. I’ve read in one of the comments that someone’s brownies are already hard outside but not on the inside due to its thickness ’cause he used a smaller pan. I’m afraid that I’d be experiencing that situation :(

    Best brownies ever. Don’t think they could have been any more gooey and fudgey. Super easy to make. No way to fail. I traded out chocolate chips for sweetened shredded coconut and it formed a nice golden brown crust without compromising the brownie at all. Will definetly make again. Thanks!

      Sorry about that! Type “recipe conversion calculator” in Google and you’ll find a ton of site that will help you convert these measurements. Good luck!

    Wowwww It looks so yummy. I have been looking for a recipe like this for ages hahahaha since I live in Brazil, it is not very common to find some generic brownie powder at the markets, so I always have to make them. But this recipe looks easier and way more fantastic than mine hahhahah, but I guess I don’t have choco chips here, gonna change for something else instead XD

    Gonna make some to my family this weekend! =)

    These look great so I just made a batch. My whole house smells delicious as they’ve just finished baking. Now I’m dying to start eating them instead of waiting for them to cool down! I’ve been searching for the perfect brownie recipe for a while and I think I may now have found it, thanks!

    Super yummy and live up to the title of “Fudge”. I was a little hesitant on beating the eggs for 5 minutes but as I approached the “light yellow colour” could see that the eggs were getting thicker. I omiited the chips for topping as I am a basic brownie lover and they are heavenly. I too lacked “unsweetened baking chocolate” and was also 2 ounces short on my semi-sweet squares so added two dark chocolate (70%) ounces and it worked fine – I didn’t omit any sugar but perhaps could have (but then why count the extra sugar when you already added 2 cups [and yes for those asking for conversion it appears that is 50 gms shy of a pound]!). Oh well didn’t make this recipe to take it easy on my waistline – sigh. Still delicious…thanks!

    Good lord. We made these brownies tonight. Substituted the white sugar for natural cane sugar, the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour, and also added peanut-butter chips to the top. I cannot stress how wonderful these brownies are. So rich and moist. This recipe as is makes a great dessert brownie. I think for a more snack brownie version we might add a bit of baking powder to fluff them up some. Like yourself, we couldn’t wait til they were completely cooled to try them.

    And THANK you for showing me the 300 degree temp for baking. I’ve only made boxed brownies before, and they go for 350 at 20-30mins. The sides always end up over done. Not this. I’m pretty sure it was mainly due to the temperature/length of time difference.

    This is definitely a recipe that I am adding to my list of “secret weapons” for when I need something simple and fabulous to impress. I’m thinking this will be what I bring to my next pot-luck. I love being that guy who brings the homemade scrumptious stuff.

    THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!

    Theyve been in the oven for an hour and ten minutes. In a 9×13″ pyrex dish, @ 300f, middle rack… toothpick still isn’t coming out clean. I’m worried about overbaking. I followed the recipe and intructions to a tee. What should I do?

      My first batch came out perfect, then two flop batches after that… One thing different in my second batch was that I don’t think I blended it enough after adding sugar, then a gain at adding chocolate, I mixed by hand… I was extra careful for the third batch and still flopped, it rose, but was gooey on the toothpick, when removed from oven, top crispy like brittle, and middle turned hard fudgey, just like the second batch… maybe my fourth batch will turn out as good as the first… Oh, for batch two and three I used semi-sweet bakers Choc vs unsweetened, don’t know if hat was the culprit

      The first batch was soooo good! Best brownies I’d ever had! Persevering till I get it right again!

    I just whipped these together and I’m waiting for my oven to preheat (dingbat forgot to preheat when i started!) I altered it slightly using the zest of a (small) whole orange and about a tablespoon and a half of the orange juice fresh squezzed. I also used nestles “dark” chocolate morsels (they say dark but they’re only 53% cocoa) instead of baking because it’s just what i had on hand and in consequence decided to half the sugar. I then used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup virgin organic coconut oil (yum!). I can’t wait to see how these turn out, I hope they’re okay! I have such a bad habit of altering every recipe I find, but orange brownies just sounded so decadent :D

    I followed the recipe, making sure everything was perfect, however as I type, my brownies are still in the oven. It has been over 55 minutes, but they are still almost watery! Before I put it in the oven the mixture looked the same as your picture however it was lighter in color, as I used milk chocolate cooking chocolate. What did I do wrong?

    I tried this today. I used a 9 x 13 dish to bake this. After waiting for 55 minutes, I inserted a toothpick but it didn’t come out clean. I waited for 2 more minutes and took out the brownies because I was afraid that I might overbake them. Still waiting for it to cool down to see how it turned out. But, something must have gone wrong. All the choco chips I put on top of the batter melted. So my brownie has this thin crispy smooth top layer. Hope you can give me advice why it turned out that way.

    Made these twice and they are beyond delicious. The first time I only had 3 eggs but it was still delightful though it didn’t quite hold together properly. Had to sort of dig each piece out of the pan. The second time around I used 4 eggs and they came out perfect. I even added some chopped peanuts with the chocolate chips as a topping and OMG!!! I warm the brownies for a few secs in the microwave, then add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and drizzle with some herseys caramel sauce. It’s heavenly! I’m in love

    Made these a couple nights ago and I was skeptical at their appearance when I took them out of the oven…but they tasted amazing! Rich, moist, fudgy, melty and wonderful when they were still warm and just as good after they chilled in the fridge. I used an unknown quantity of 64% Madagascar dark chocolate (all I had on hand) and will probably use a darker chocolate next time.

    If this recipe didn’t turn out great for you, you’re more than likely doing something wrong.
