Ben and Jerry's Superfudge Brownies

Sometimes Mr. J and I fight. He wants apple pie. I want cookies.  Marriage is tough.

Our compromise was brownies.  Really rich brownies.

Mr. J however ended up eating the last three brownies without me knowing. Never a good thing when you go to eat your evening dessert only to find out that no more exists.

Marriage is tough.

My advice, if you make these brownies grab them when you can. You never know when they will be gone. 

I have a favorite recipe that uses cocoa powder but I truly feel a good brownie comes from melting a hunk of chocolate.  This recipe does just that.

Ben and Jerry's Superfudge Brownies

by Emily Morris
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: bake dessert chocolate brownies
Ingredients (serves 12)
  • 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 4 large eggs, at room temp.
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter and lightly flour a 13x9 baking pan.

Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Let cool in the pan to room temp.

Beat the eggs and salt in a mixing bowl until very fluffy. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture. Add the flour and fold just until blended. (It is important to fold in the chocolate and flour gently to keep the batter as fluffy as possible.)

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan completely before cutting.

  1. Mmm. :) Your Mr. sounds a lot like mine. Definitely not to be trusted around the last few pieces of the dessert!

  2. omg yummmyyyyy love the rich, fudginess!

    and omg Michael and I have the apple pie vs cookie debate on the regular lol

  3. Rich brownies to die for. And what's with the apple requests? My Mr J always asks for apple crisp and we always settle on cupcakes lol!

  4. ahhh. Marriage is tough! I think it's in the husband rule book to eat down the sweets when we have a craving for them.

  5. Our food fights are usually about shrimp or ice cream. This may give us a third, but I'm going to try it anyway because it sounds SOOOO good.

  6. Oh there is nothing worse than realizing your dessert is gone! (Especially when it's too late to make another batch!) But I'm glad you guys were able to reach a compromise. I can certainly see why! These look delicious.

  7. I wish my hubby and I would compromise so easily... these brownies look amazing. I could dive into that plate. :)
