Whether you are looking for a dessert to take to a potluck or you want something to enjoy at home with your family, fudge brownies are always a good choice. They make great snacks for those sweet cravings.

Fudge Brownies Ingredients

Butter –butter adds richness to the brownies. Oil can also be used, but the brownie will be softer.

Sugar –adds sweetness, but also creates the right texture in your brownie. If you leave the sugar out, the brownies will be hard and dry. Brown sugar adds an extra flavor of caramelization and makes them more moist and chewier.

Cocoa Powder – the cocoa powder gives an extra cocoa flavor.

Eggs – bind the brownie batter together.

Flour – the flour together with the eggs, holds the brownies together.



To make the brownies fudgier, you can add an extra yolk. Use egg yolks only if you want to make it extra fudgy.

For more flavor, you can use add vanilla extract, coffee essence, or caramel essence.

Want more texture? Add chocolate chips, pecan nuts, or walnuts to the brownie batter.

Test the brownie for doneness by sticking a skewer or toothpick through the center. The skewer shouldn’t be completely clean, then the brownie is overbaked. Brownies continue to bake for a few minutes after removing it from the oven, so to prevent this you need to take it out at the right time. There should not be any wet batter on the stick, but just a few moist crumbs.

If you do happen to overbake a brownie, don’t worry! Slice the brownie into cubes and serve with ice cream!

Make your own swirl brownie: Add jam, peanut butter, cream cheese, and caramel, and swirl them in before baking. For a 9×9-inch pan, don’t add more than ¾ cups. For a larger 9×13-inch pan, you can add up to 1 cup.

Make sure that the bowl and pot fit nicely onto each other—the bowl should be resting on top of the pot (in other words it should be larger). Place water inside the pot (it should not touch the bowl) and place over medium heat.
