Fudgy Frosted Brownies

These are some sincerely Fudgy Brownies with a thick layer of fudge frosting.

Fudgy Frosted Brownies

Have you ever taken a bite of a brownie… a brownie that you were so excited to dive into… and it was a bite full of cake?  Yeah, ICK, right?  Brownies are not meant to be cakey.  They are forever destined to be fudgy, and these brownies are most definitely fudgy.

You’ll need a tall glass of milk nearby to get through one of these.  There is a thick layer of fudge frosting nestled on top.  It’s the perfect treat for chocolate lovers like my husband and my kiddo.  I’m not as much of a chocolate maniac as my family,  but I was unable to keep myself away from these.  YUM.

Fudgy Frosted Brownies

Yield: 3 dozen

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 30 min

Ingredients:

BROWNIES:
2/3 cup salted butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups granulated white sugar
1 1/3 cups Gold Medal® All-Purpose Flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee bits

FROSTING:
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons salted butter
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar- (measure, then sift)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.

2. Prepare the brownies: In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; add to the butter mixture and mix well. Stir in the water, chocolate chips and toffee chips until combined. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool on a wire rack.

4. Prepare the glaze: In a saucepan, combine the chips, milk and butter over medium heat (stirring) until the chips and butter are melted and smooth. Remove from the heat; whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread the glaze over the brownies. Let the brownies cool completely (the refrigerator works well for this), then cut into bars. They will be fudgy, so use a thin metal spatula to get them out of the pan.

    The part about biting into a big piece of cake when you thought you were having a brownie – oh boy, I can relate. And yes, brownies are meant to be fudgy (like these!!). Awesome recipe. I can see the fudge factor! Pinned

    Alice — November 14, 2013 @ 12:37 PM

    I made these yesterday. They didn’t turn out as fudgey as I’d like and the frosting was a lot thinner than in the pictures. Maybe I need to double the frosting recipe?

    Susan — November 24, 2013 @ 12:50 AM

    Do the brownies need to be cool before you put on the glaze? These look so good and can’t wait to try.

    • Lori Lange replied: — November 25th, 2013 @ 9:03 PM

      Not necessarily completely. But it’s best if you let the brownies + glaze cool completely before you try to slice them.

    chacha — November 26, 2013 @ 9:33 PM

    iona — February 17, 2014 @ 9:16 PM

    Do you take these out of the baking tray when cooling so the Brownies do not continue to cook?

    They look amazing!

    • Lori Lange replied: — February 20th, 2014 @ 2:49 PM

      No, they can stay in the pan.

    BakerMomma — March 2, 2014 @ 7:57 PM

    Made these today and they were amazing! I was a little reluctant because another reader commented that hers didn’t turn out well. Perfect texture, the glaze held up well. I halved the recipe and baked in an 8×8 pan. Also substituted pecans for the toffee. Thanks for this one!

      awesome- thanks for sharing, and glad you had success!
