Fudge Topped Brownies

One of my favourite blogs Hugs & Cookies XOXO has a monthly bake along on Facebook, where friends and followers can bake a recipe she chooses from her blog. This months Bake Along was dedicated to these brownies. As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to make them! Now I'm a little late in the bake along game, since this is round 67. In my defense I didn't know Danielle was doing bake alongs until this month. Had I known, I would have been backing more of her fabulously mouth watering desserts!

These brownies are the best brownies I've ever made!!! They are so moist, tender and rich. Perfect with a big glass of milk, these brownies will have you swooning with the first bite. How could they not though, with 2 cups of sugar, heavy cream and chocolate ganache. I made mine in my Pampered Chef brownie pan and in my medium muffin tin. I also topped them with candy coated chocolate sprinkles, to make them super cute.  Totally indulgent and decadent!!

Fudge Topped Brownies
Hugs & Cookies XOXO adapted from Hershey's via That Skinny Chick Can Bake

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa, sifted
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla


2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla


Preheat oven to 350°. Line 9 x 13 pan with nonstick foil and set aside.

Stir together butter, sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, eggs, cream and 2 teaspoons vanilla in large bowl; beat till all combined. Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake 40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. When brownies are almost finished baking, combine chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan and heat till chocolate melts. Add the and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla.

 Immediately spread over hot brownies (I waited 2 minutes before pouring it on). Allow to cool on wire rack then refrigerate. To serve, cut into bars.

Makes 24 to 36 brownies.
