Fudge Topped Brownies #Chocolate Party

Fudgy Brownies with a fudgy frosting make for the ultimate, chocolate lover’s brownie: Fudge Topped BrowniesFudge Topped Brownies! The ultimate chocolate lover's treat!

I had LOTS of chocolate to bake up for our Decorators’ Show House party last week. I volunteer for this marvelous organization that raises funds for our county hospital…and this year our Show House is the Historic Schnull-Rauch home just north of downtown Indianapolis. 30+ interior decorators will transform this empty house into a dream home with the latest designer trends. But we get to throw a party before all the work begins…and guess who volunteered to bring chocolate dessert for 75? I don’t think anyone is surprised…yup, me. First up are these lovely Fudge Topped Brownies with a decadent frosting that is just poured on top of the hot brownies.Fudge Topped Brownies! The ultimate chocolate lover's treat!

Bill sampled the edges as I  trimmed these  into bars for the serving platter. He nodded with approval and shoveled in a few more shards. And more than one guest told me these were the BEST brownies they had ever eaten, the ultimate compliment.These were served along with squares of  Chocolate Cheesecake and Death by Chocolate Cookies. Stay tuned for more chocolate treats as the month progresses. Your sweet tooth will thank me, even if your waistline won’t.

This month’s Chocolate Party theme is double chocolate…any recipe with two or more kinds of chocolate will suffice. Please feel free to link up any double chocolate  dessert you’ve made and blogged about in February…and consider joining the Chocolate Party gang. Check out our hostess’ blog, Roxana’s Home Baking for details.

Note: the linky party has disappeared, but if you’re interested in this group, head over to Roxana’s blog.

  1. *trying not to bake… trying not to bake… trying not to…. Grabs keys to go get chocolate*

    These look amazing! Kudos to you for giving your time for a good local cause! There’s nothing more fulfilling than giving your time for a cause you believe in- well, other than chocolate!

  2. So noble of you to raise funds for your county hospital, Liz. The Schnull-Rauch House looks like a mini castle and a fabulous place to throw a party.

    BTW For my husband’s physics & spirituality MeetUp, I was contemplating making vegan brownies with black beans. But, oh, my, my, I think your recipe is beckoning to me =)

  3. I didn’t realize you were a Hoosier! I grew up in a tiny town outside of Columbus Indiana 🙂 and still consider the state my home. I like you even more now! And these look perfect.

  4. Taking On Magazines says:

    Oh, I’m so printing off this recipe. Hubby just left the house all forlorn because he didn’t have a sweet treat in his lunch. He’d LOVE these. I like the idea of your fundraiser very much.

  5. I bet they were happy campers with all that chocolate, amazing bars Lizzie! We have a similar iniciative here that restores historic places and eventually neighbourhoods. It´s a win-win situation, I love it.

  6. Lizzie these sound so good. What a nice thing to bake to raise money for a good cause.

  7. Oh my gosh these are too sinfully good! Fudge and brownie. *sigh*

  8. SOOOOO CHOCOLATEY! These look phenomenal.

  9. OMY Lizzy these brownies look amazing!!

  10. Hi Liz, you are brave to volunteer for such a big party! Although I understand you: it feels so good! 🙂

  11. These look super delicious! Perfect with a big glass of milk.

  12. These brownies sound wonderful, and what a terrific cause to bake for. Isn’t it great when you can combine two passions?

  13. Now those are some super aphrodisiac brownies, Liz! Oh my goodness! What a keeper recipe . . . thanks for sharing it!

    Bill and I drove through Iowa City after my dad’s funeral on the way back to SC, to stop at the bookstore for some “IOWA” souvenirs (you can’t find those in Ames!). Thank you for your kind sympathy card. The thoughtfulness of all of my friends, co-workers, and blogging buddies has overwhelmed me with emotion.

    Hugs and kisses,

  14. Oh my goodness, chocolate heaven has been found!

  15. Beautiful brownies, Liz! Love your fudge topping!

  16. Liz, what a beautiful house! And how fabulous of you to donate all the amazing chocolatey treats. These brownies look OH EM GEE fantastic. So rich, dense and fudgy. I would’ve bought out your entire inventory if I attended that fundraiser and then put in an order for more. You do deliver, right? 😉

  17. I would gladly volunteer to taste the edges next time. They look very chocolaty and perfect to my eyes.

  18. Recipe printed!!! These look amazing. What a great fundraiser idea – wish I could attend!

  30. Holy cow those look good! I would never think to put fudge on top of something already as rich as a brownie…but I think it definitely works!

  31. Liz, you are amazing and it doesn’t surprise me at all that you are baking chocolate desserts for 75! These look awesome…they almost look like they have 3 layers of chocolate! My sweet tooth…and my dentist….thank you in advance! ; – }

  35. The texture on these looks absolutely perfect! And chocolate? More is always merrier 🙂

  36. Liz, what a very worthy cause and what a decadent Brownie – I really like the elegant look of these, makes for a very nice presentation. A fudge frosting that gets poured over a hot brownie is something I have yet to try and from the compliments that you got, this must be a wonderful recipe.

  45. is there anything better than chocolate on chocolate? reminds me of Texas sheet cake, you frost while hot…why wait?? 🙂

  46. They look like the beat brownies ever!!! Congratulations on your event- I’m sure your brownies were extremely popular 😉

  47. Oh my goodness… these recipes look so delicious! I don’t think I have a double chocolate recipe to link up right now 🙁 and I’m bummed.
