Fudge Brownies – Think Outside the Box

Fudge Brownies

Fudge Brownies

This last year I was on the hunt for a good, moist, chocolaty, brownie recipe.  I tried many different recipes and finally found this Fudge Brownie Recipe.  I have made it for many of our friends as a dessert and served it with our home made ice cream, which my husband makes and is absolutely fabulous!  Each time I have served the brownies I have had rave reviews.  If you want a nice chocolate dessert or are craving something chocolaty, these brownies will not disappoint. They are fudge-like versus cake-like.  My husband and I love these Fudge Brownies.

Since I baked these brownies I have not wanted to use a box mix again.  I always enjoy knowing what ingredients are in my food and baking from scratch allows me to do this.  This recipe is simple and it is relatively quick to whip up a pan of brownies. This recipe calls for vanilla extract and I bought, for the first time, Organic Vanilla Extract.  I found the best price for Organic Vanilla Extract at Vitacost online.

I also used my own eggs from my chickens, Real Butter, Organic White Wheat Flour, Organic Cane Sugar, and Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips.  My next step is to purchase organic semi sweet chocolate chips.  Baking with organic ingredients warms my heart in that if I am going to go through the effort to bake something to serve, I want it to be as healthy as possible, while tasting great.

The recipe calls for powdered sugar to be sprinkled on top of the brownies when they are done.  It has been my experience that you want to do this right after pulling the brownies out of the oven, otherwise the powdered sugar does not stick to the brownies.  A little kitchen tool that I totally love using to sprinkle the powdered sugar is a mini hand held sifter.  The powdered sugar spreads onto the brownies nice, fine and even.

My vintage hand mixer is perfect for the mixing in this recipe.  Sometimes it is the little simple kitchen tools that makes a recipe come together easily or assist in the finishing touches.

A Little Extra Tidbit: I have baked these brownies for my Farmers’ Market and I transported  them in my Snapware 2-Layer Cupcake and Cookie Carrier that I found on Amazon. I totally love it.

I bake my brownies the night before my market and once they are cool I put them in my Snapware Carrier on the cake side of the tray and they stay fresh until I am ready to sell then at my market the next day.
