Fudge Brownies

This is my new favorite brownie recipe and it’s from Weevalicious Recipes. It’s so simple and you only need one bowl to make them! These brownies are rich, fudgey, chocolatey, and delicious. They’re even better with vanilla ice cream! Recipe after the jump.

I added about 1/2 cup shredded coconut and some sprinkles to mine (which I should have added more of because you could barely tell they were there), but chocolate chips, nuts, or any other extras you want to add will work, too. But you don’t have to add anything because these are great on their own!

Spread the batter in a greased or lined 9×13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

The coconut added a little something extra to these already terrific brownies! You can dust them with powdered sugar, frost them, or leave them plain.

    Hi, I made (7/24)these with only one change. I added a cream cheese marshmallow floater filling that I found from another blog (it was used in a cupcake recipe). I’ll be posting it and photos on my blog, hopefully soon with a link back to you. Thanks for another yummy recipe! Keep ’em coming!

    Well… I tried these tonight. My husband asked for something chocolate, and I figured we could take most of them to church tomorrow.
    They came out kind of weird, though. I’m not entirely sure what to make of it. I did have a taste (don’t tell my doctor!!) and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I forgot the salt, and had about 1/8 cup less cocoa than needed (I was grabbing out of the pantry). I’m wondering if it needed more flour or some sort of dry ingredient. I guess it was probably just a combo of all of that. They were good, REALLY sweet, but a little weird. My bad.

    Just wanted to let you know I baked these today – they’re absolutely as wonderful and as easy as you said they would be! I used 2 c sugar vs. 3 and put them in a smaller baking dish, and they emerged from the oven victorious. Yum. Thank you!

    I made these tonight- they are great! I had some extra caramel sauce in the fridge that I had made for an ice cream sundae party, so I marbled it into the batter before baking. Super good! Next time I might try to cut down a little on the sugar and use some dark chocolate to get a deeper chocolate flavor.

    I just made these brownies, only substituting the unsweetened cocoa with Special Dark Cocoa. They turned out amazing!!! Thank you so much ^_^

  11. […] had always wanted to make the famous Baked Brownie, but for some reason I continued to make the same old brownies over and over again because they always came out the way I wanted and it was a one-bowl recipe! I […]

    Have you ever tried baking these in muffin or mini-muffin tins? Wondering how they would turn out. Suggestions?
