Homemade brownies can be better than the boxed mixes and these fudge brownies prove that! This brownie recipe is just as easy as any boxed mix and about a millions times more decadent. I promise that your family, and anyone else you save enough to share with, will love them.
I will admit to loving brownies from a boxed mix more than homemade brownies. There is just something about that boxed mixed that is perfectly chewing and chocolatey. Boxed brownies were my favorite until I had these fudge brownies. A friend of mine is a personal chef and she made these brownies for her daughter's birthday a few years ago. It was love at first bite. I promise you – these are the best brownies you will ever make.
One of our daughters doesn't care for cake so she always requests brownies for her birthday. These fudge brownies. One year I tried to sneak past my whole wheat brownies on her birthday, but she took one bite and knew I'd used a different recipe. I use this recipe to make “grilled” brownies over the summer and they are always a big hit.
I make these brownies in mini-muffin cups because they are so rich, that just a little bite goes a long way. Once I made them as regular sized cupcake, but I only filled the cups up half-way. I've never made them in a pan but you certainly can make them that way. Just make sure to cut them small! In a double boiler melt the chocolate and butter. Set aside and allow to cool.
In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar and teaspoon.
In another bowl combine flour and salt. Add cooled chocolate to egg mixture and mix. Then add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix.
Spoon into desired baking pan.
