Chocolate fudge brownie (With real fudge pieces)
So, here at The Little Fudge Box, we just had to include a chocolate fudge brownie recipe because who doesn't love a gooey chocolate brownie and crumbly, melt in the mouth chocolate fudge? Of course, you don't necessarily have to use chocolate fudge, you could use rum raisin, or salted caramel liqueur in with the chocolatey mix, or how about good old traditional vanilla? Combine with the brownie mixture...pure heaven...
This was made using a fairly deep baking pan so that the brownie was nice and thick and retained it's fudgy gooeyness. The fudge pieces nicely melt into the chocolatey mixture as it cooks. Yum.
200g salted butter.
200g dark cooking chocolate chips.
175g brown sugar.
1tsp vanilla extract.
75g plain flour.
30g cocoa powder. (we used Dr.Oetker)
100g dark cooking chocolate bar chopped or broken into chunks.
85g chocolate fudge chopped into smaller chunks. (from the little fudge box, of course)!
Pre-heat oven to 180c, 350f 160c fan.
Spray a 20cm, 8 inch tin with oil and line with baking paper with overhang.
Place butter and chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl, microwave in 30 second bursts (took me 1 min 30 sec) until melted. Stir until smooth.
Add sugar and vanilla, mix, then add eggs and mix well until smooth and molten.
Add flour, cocoa and stir until smooth, stir in chopped chocolate and fudge pieces and pour into pan.
Bake for 24 minutes for really gooey in the centre, 28 minutes for fudgy but still very moist, (our favourite shown in photos), 32 minutes for moist fudge like cake.
Rest for ten minutes before lifting out of the pan. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting.
Store in an airtight container for 4 days or freeze for 3 months.
We were also thinking that as well as the flavours mentioned earlier that would make good tasty brownies when partnered with chocolate, the above would equally work well. You could replace the chocolate fudge for a chilli chocolate, Baileys and Pistachio or Prosecco and Strawberry? How about a Penderyn Whisky? All these and others are available to buy on our website littlefudgebox and Etsy page.
Have fun browsing and coming up with different fudgy combinations for this recipe. You could even mix more than one flavour of fudge... (Do let us know how you get on)!
