Friends! If you have been visiting my site for long, you have seen that I like brownies. I do have my absolute favorite Best Ever Brownies, but these fudge brownies are a very very close second. The only reason that they don’t take first place in my kitchen is that they are not a one bowl brownie. These fudge brownies take on a rich fudge flavor by melting the chocolate bar and butter over a low heat. The frosting is the same. Using a low heat with chocolate takes it to a real “fudge level”…..if there is such a thing. Fudge Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are going to become a favorite for sure. I imagine this will be my go to dessert for gatherings and delivering to new moms and those who are in need of a good dose of love via food.
The key to make these really awesome is the type of unsweetened chocolate you use. I chose a Ghiradelli bar and it was a wonderful choice. You can use their semi sweet chocolate for the frosting as well. They make a wonderful chocolate as fas as what you can find in any grocery store. Remember, I’m your typical mom who shops at Walmart, Safeway, and Costco. I am in Montana so I don’t have access to lots of “fancy” ingredients.
Make these asap. You won’t be sorry. They are amazing with a hot latte or a big glass of milk. Let your little ones help you and lick the spatula.
