Frosted Fudgy Homemade Brownies for #BacktoSchoolTreats
Are you looking for some seriously decadent chocolate yum? These are the FUDGIEST brownies! They are intensely chocolate, super moist, and I was able to use some leftover frosting I had to tuck them in with a layer of creamy chocolate frosting.
I've not really had much luck with homemade brownie recipes I've tried in the past - but these ones definitely count as "success" and I am so happy to share this one with you!
These keep very well in the refrigerator for a few days (if they last that long)! You can cut the bites pretty small as they are incredibly rich, and a little goes a long way. They're perfect with a small glass of milk to wash them down (or coffee)!

Fudgy Homemade Brownies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
8-ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate (I used Baker's)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 TBS all-purpose flour
2 TBS cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Optional ~ 3/4 cup Chocolate Buttercream (from Sally's Baking Addiction)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 9x9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
- Combine the butter and baking chocolate in a saucepan over low heat; stir constantly until they melt and create a silky smooth mixture. Set aside to cool about 10 minutes.
- Scrape butter / chocolate into the bowl of a stand mixer once cooled, blend in both sugars; whip to combine.
- On medium speed, add in the eggs 1 at a time, blending well between additions. Scrape down the sides as needed.
- Add in the vanilla and blend again.
- On low speed, add in the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt and mix just until blended.
- Stir in the chocolate chips by hand with a spatula.
- Spread the brownie batter into the prepped baking dish and smooth gently.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Cool completely before frosting (if using).
