Fudgy Fudge Brownies

Fudgy Fudge Brownies are how I like mine!

No cake style here for me!

These are so chewy and gooey with the addition of Fudge Icing you can’t go wrong!

Now that Jason has been trying his hand at making my recipes, I can see where (in these older videos) I may have been unclear at some points.

While your brownies are baking, you can go ahead and make the  Fudge Icing to get an award winning finish, and then proceed to ice your COOLED brownies as I demonstrate in this video that follows:

    Hi Gretchen! I tried you reicpe and it tastes great! But I found that the brownies came out of the oven more like a cake consistency? Is this normal?

    • Gretchen Price says

      Not normal for this particular recipe, these should be very fudgy, perhaps you had too much flour, or it got a bit overmixed and overbaked? Just guessing since I cannot be 100% sure what you did different

      • Kaitlyn says

        Hi Gretchen! As I started eating more brownies (because they’re so amazing!) I found the my brownies in the middle of the pan are very fudgy, just like yours. But the slices around the perimeter of the pan are more cake like. I must have just left it in for too long lol. Thanks for your help! :)

    • Gretchen Price says

      I have actually revised this recipe to use all semi sweet chocolate since so many people could not get bitter chocolate.
      But if you like to use a mix of bitter and semi, just do half and half (6oz each)

  2. Sherie says

    Hi Gretchen, thank you for sharing the great recipe!
    May I know if I can change the baking powder to baking soda, and make this recipe into cupcakes? Will the cupcakes be moist and fluffy?

    Dear Gretchen,
    I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that our brownies batter has a burnt surface and unbaked batter in the middle. Now we have found the reason: our chocolate. Our chocolate was not a baking one, it was rather for coating. I called the supplier and she said that our products are not resistance to heat and that we have to acquire a product which can be baked. Do you think Chocolate Chips will work for us in this case? Or, Can you please provide me with the characteristics of a baking chocolate which can be used for baking?
    Thanks a million

    I made this recipe i used small round cake pan and it raise up too much it camue out like a cake any advice or suggestion?

    • Gretchen Price says

      yes you can use the correct sized pan next time, when you put all the batter in a small pan you have a thicker, denser cakier brownie

    Hi chef Gretchen,

    i tried to bake half of the fudge brownies recipe but it turned out cakey not fudgy n chewy…..i wonder what went wrong

    thanks chef

    • Gretchen Price says

      often times when we HALF recipes the mathematics are incorrect and there is a lot of room for error, perhaps you measured wrong?

  6. Sarah says

    Hi Grechen,

    We tried to bake your recipe twice but we failed. first time, it poured out of the pan which we think it is because the pan was too small but the second time, with a bigger pan, the surface was burned and the batter was not baked and it was also very thin. Where did WE go Wrong????

    • Gretchen Price says

      well sounds like a measuring error if the batter was too thin, but also your oven sounds the culprit if you are having burned surface and raw middle

  7. Peyton says

    I made your brownies and icing for a family reception.
    They were a hit and have become the
    Favorite go to brownie dessert!
    Thanks Gretchen

  8. kyle says

    Hey melting chocolate and butter in microwave caused it to curdle i had lumpy cement like chocolate any ideas why

    • Gretchen Price says

      yes too hot.
      Chocolate must be melted very slowly and stir more than you heat
      It should never get above 100 degreesF
      What happened to you is called SEIZING in other words: Death to Chocolate :(

  9. Ronasha says

    Hi….I would like to know if it’s fine to use baking milk chocolate will it come like a fudge brownie ? N I like to use it as a desert with no icing but with only vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup .. Thank u :)

    • Gretchen Price says

      yes although milk chocolate is much sweeter so cut the sugar by 1 cup
      sounds great as a dessert with ice cream!

  10. Remy Rose Desiderio says

    Hi, Gretchen.

    Can I make the fudge brownie without the fudge icing, will it still be that good? Do I need to chop the chocolate into pieces before adding it to the butter into the microwave? Thanks in advance. I love everything about woodland baking. Your fan from the Philippines!!!
