How to make double fudge brownies

Print this recipe
Of all the different types of brownies that are out there, double fudge brownies may just be the most popular. It's no wonder why. They're rich, they're gooey, and they're sticky sweet. And when you cover them with a ganache, as in the recipe that follows, all of that gets taken to a whole other level. Don't be surprised, and don't feel bad, when you find yourself going back for more.
The chocolate ganache really isn't necessary, but it does make these brownies a bit messier. Messy brownies are really the best kind of brownies, aren't they? Of course, they could get a thick traditional brownie icing, or leave them as they are when they pop out of the oven. They'll be delicious any way you enjoy them!

Double Fudge Brownies
9 brownies
10 minutes
25 minutes
35 minutes
1/2 cup unsalted butter, plus 1 tablespoon
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups chocolate chips, divided
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cake flour
1/3 cup unscented cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease an 8" x 8" baking dish.
In a double boiler melt together 1/2 cup of butter, brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.
Beat eggs lightly in a bowl.
When everything has melted together, ladle 1/4 of the chocolate mixture into the eggs. Then pour the entire egg mixture back into the chocolate mixture.
Add vanilla extract to the chocolate mixture.
In a large bowl whisk together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and fold together until fully combined.
Pour the brownie batter into the prepared dish.
Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove brownies from the oven and allow them to cool for at least 1 hour.
While the brownies are cooling, place the chocolate chips and butter in a large heatproof bowl.
In a small saucepan, bring the milk just to boiling. Then pour over the chocolate chips and butter and stir to incorporate all ingredients.
Slice and serve brownies, pouring some of the ganache over top.
