Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (19 -21 ounce) package fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 14 cups water
  • 1 (4 ounce) bar bittersweet chocolate, fine-quality
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar chocolate fudge topping
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 cup sliced almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla ice cream (optional) or frozen whipped topping (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Lightly spray bottom of an oven proof (12-in.) skillet with nonstick cooking spray.

  4. Spread batter over bottom of skillet.
  5. Cut bittersweet chocolate into small pieces.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate evenly over batter.
  7. Combine 2 cups water and ice cream topping in a large microwave proof bowl; whisk until well blended.
  8. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil.

  10. Carefully pour ice cream topping mixture over brownie batter in a circular pattern.
