Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies
Who’s a chocolate lover? Silly question, I know 🙂 Well, this is the one chocolate recipe I’m asked for over and over, so I thought I’d share it with you – Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies. Mmmm. People can’t believe how much better homemade brownies taste than the boxed kind and with not much more effort.
I prefer a moist, fudgy brownie and this recipe is just that! It almost melts in your mouth. I literally can’t keep them in the house for more than a day. Everyone, I mean everyone, wants a piece…or two!
They’re kinda addictive. I never used to like dark chocolate, but that all changed with this recipe.

How to Make Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies
The key to a fudge-like brownie is undercooking just slightly, so keep an eye on the oven, because you want to take them out just as they get firm. They continue cooking a bit as they cool. If you prefer cake-like brownies, then leave them a little longer. Either way the flavor is rich and delicious.
And don’t forget the water…I did once and it didn’t turn out well!
It’s worth the few extra minutes to make these from scratch.
This is pure brownie love! So grab a glass of cold milk and enjoy.
