Seriously Sinful Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Seriously Sinful Chocolate Fudge Brownies created by CookingONTheSide

I have never known a more popular chocolate brownie! I originally made these while working at a prestigious local hotel...We used to serve them just warmed enough to melt the fudge icing with a dollop of good vanilla ice cream or whipped cream...delicious. I also used to make these every year for a local charity bake sale. Every year we put the price up and every year people used to queue up for them and buy them by the handful. Over the years I have had more requests to make these than for any other kind of cake. Everybody seems to love them...I hope that you do too.

    Made this for the DH and he enjoyed it as a change from cake though he thought it was overly sweet. I only used about a 1/3 of the icing as I knew if I used it all it would be too much for him (I have frozen the rest of the icing to use on cupcakes later). I have frozen what he didn't take and will see how it goes and give a further update then. Thank you Noo, made for 1,2,3 and 4 Hit Wonders.

    These were easy enough to make (I followed a previous reviewer's suggestion to bake them in a 13x9 dish for 25 min). They were not nearly as fudgy as I had hoped for, and next time I'll definitely bake them in a smaller dish as they turned out thinner than I wanted. I skipped the icing and served them with vanilla ice cream. Definitely worth making, and I'll continue my quest for the perfect (for me) brownie recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    I make brownies a lot, so was not uncomfortable with the lack of oven temperature or baking pan size! However, that information really needs to be in the directions when it comes to those who aren't yet that comfortable in the kitchen! Your brownies are GREAT TASTING & easy enough to make! Thanks for sharing them! [Tagged, made & reviewed just for the 'halibut!']
