Notes on Ingredients

The secret to these delicious brownies lies in the quality of the ingredients:

  • Unsweetened Baking Chocolate: Ensures a deep, rich chocolate flavor.
  • Butter: Adds richness and moisture.
  • Eggs: Provide structure and richness.
  • White Sugar: Sweetens and adds to the fudgy texture.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the overall flavor.
  • All-Purpose Flour: Forms the base of the batter.
  • Chopped Walnuts: Add a delightful crunch and contrast to the fudgy texture.
  • Heavy Cream and Butter (for frosting): Create a creamy, rich frosting that complements the brownies perfectly.

How to Make Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and greasing a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Prepare the Brownies: Combine 8 squares of unsweetened baking chocolate and 1 cup of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until the chocolate is soft and butter is melted, about 2 minutes. Stir to mix.
  3. Mix the Batter: In a large bowl, beat 5 eggs, 3 cups of white sugar, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract with an electric mixer on high speed for 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and beat in the melted butter-chocolate mixture. Add 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, beating until just combined. Stir in 2 cups of chopped walnuts.
  4. Bake: Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with fudgy crumbs, about 35 minutes. Let cool in the pan.
  5. Make the Frosting: While the brownies are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a saucepan, combine 1 1/4 cups of white sugar and 1 cup of heavy cream over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to simmer, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 7 minutes without stirring. Remove from the heat and add 5 squares of unsweetened baking chocolate and 1/2 cup of unsalted butter. Stir until melted and smooth. Whisk in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Chill in the refrigerator, stirring every few minutes until thickened, about 30 minutes.
  6. Frost and Serve: Frost the cooled brownies with the chilled frosting. Cut into 32 squares and enjoy!

How to Serve Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Store these brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze for up to three months. When ready to eat, let them come to room temperature for the best texture.
