|"Chocolate Fudge Brownie"|
Chocolate Fudge Brownies is one of the easiest brownie recipe that I have tried. This Fudge Brownie is moist and dense and has an intense chocolate flavor as it contains more chocolate than the regular brownies, hence the are more darker and have a little bitter chocolate taste and the walnuts adds crunch to it.
The best part about these is that I have not used flour for this recipe... post Diwali I was left with loads of Chocolate Cookies at home which a dear friend of mine had got. I just wanted to use them up quickly as we are not much fond of these . So I decided to replace flour with powdered cookies, the first batch which I tried turned out really nice and got over in minutes. I did have to do a few amendments before I made the second batch and they turned out Great!!
Truly Sinful!!! its not very sweet as I have used dark semi sweet chocolate...and the best part is that its really easy....my lil one had a great time breaking the cookies and mixing the batter too.
Here is the simple n easy recipe.
Chocolate chips - 1 cup +1/4th cup (Dark Chocolate, Semi sweet)
Chocolate cookies - 15 pcs
Sugar- 1/4th cup
Butter,unsalted - 1/4th cup
Eggs - 2
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/4th teaspoon
Walnuts, chopped -1/2 cup
For the Topping
Chocolate chips - 1/4th cup
Walnuts, chopped - 1/4th cup
Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C.
Pulse the chocolate chip cookies in a grinder for 30 seconds, keep aside for later use.
Take a 8X8 inches glass baking dish and line it with Aluminium foil, grease it with butter or nonstick cooking spray and keep aside.
Melt chocolate chips and butter in a microwave for 30 seconds, remove, stir and re-heat for another
30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir well. Even if there are some chips don't worry as they will melt while you stir.
Add sugar and mix well.
Add the eggs and mix
Add the powdered cookies along with salt and mix.
Add vanilla extract and fold in chopped walnut and remaining chocolate chips.
Pour the brownie mixture in the baking dish. mix the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the brownie batter. Bake in preheated oven at 350°F or 180°C for 25 -30 minutes or until a tester or toothpick comes out clean, with moist crumbs still attached to it. Do not overbake.
Remove from oven and let it cool for 10 - 15 minutes.
I have mentioned salt in the list of ingredients but have not used in the recipe as the cookies which I have used were salty, please taste the cookies which you would be using and add salt only if required.
I have made these brownies using ready cookies which had sugar in them so I have just added 1/4th cup of sugar, but if you want to make these with Regular all purpose flour then increase the quantity of sugar from 1/4th cup to 3/4th cup.
