Fudge Topped Brownies

Chocolate calls my husbands name; at least that is what he says A LOT! I cannot tell you how many times I have found a lonely chocolate chip on the pantry floor while he was grabbing a handful to shove into his mouth when he couldn’t find anything else.


I just took a pan of these out of the oven and the first words out of his mouth are “can I have one of those; or are they for someone else”? He has seen many a baked good leave the house without getting to have any of them. Fortunately for him I was planning on splitting the tray and only take half of them to work for my co-worker’s birthday.



I know most people find it easier to use a box mix for brownies and I was definitely one of them. They taste good, they are simple and I have had many homemade brownies that just did nothing for me; until now. If you ever want to try a delicious and easy to make brownie you need to check these out I promise you won’t be disappointed.


He is still bugging me for one; since I have to bring some of them to work, we have to wait for them to completely cool so they don’t crumble into pieces. We have had a lot of experience with cutting uncooled brownies; I am sure by now you know who I am talking about.



You probably also noticed I made my brownies half with nuts and half without. I am sure this would never solve a nut allergy but it solves the fact the my son does not like nuts so I try to accommodate this by making sure when I bake I either split the pan or make 2 loaves be it banana or pear bread.


1 cup of butter – 2 sticks melted
2 cups of sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
⅔ cup Hershey cocoa
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
½ cup milk
3 teaspoon vanilla – divided 1 ½ teaspoon each

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350’

Bake for 40 minutes

put first 7 ingredients along with 1½ teaspoon of the vanilla in a large bowl beat well. If you are adding nuts either add all now or do as I did and after adding batter to 9×13 pan stir into half of the pan.

In a pan or bowl heat or microwave the chips and condensed milk and the other 1½ teaspoon vanilla just till melted and pour over the brownies when they are hot out of the oven.

Let them cool before cutting and enjoy with a big glass of milk or some vanilla ice cream!
