Triple Fudge Brownies


This is a recipe (from Brownie Lover’s Diary…where else?) that I tried a little while back for triple fudge brownies. These are absolutely perfect when you have a chocolate craving, and are the perfect fudgy brownie, topped with fudge icing and mini chocolate chips (optional, but awesome). Definitely try these at home, or just make the frosting for your favorite brownie recipe/mix.




  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • Hot water
Combine brown sugar, butter, flour, walnuts (if using), cocoa, eggs and vanilla in a bowl. With electric mixer, beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Spread evenly into a buttered 9 x 13 in baking pan. Bake at 300F until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the brownies comes out with a few crumbs clinging to it, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Melt butter in a saucepan; stir in cocoa, salt and vanilla. Heat mixture, stirring frequently, until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in icing sugar. (Mixture will be thick.) Add small amounts (1 to 2 teaspoons) of hot water at a time and beat with a whisk until mixture is just thin enough to spread over brownies.

Be sure to let the brownies cool before frosting and topping! (I know, this requires a lot of restraint. Deal with it.)
