Baked Fudge

From Baked Fudge


oh, my, gosh. Pioneer Woman's baked fudge tastes just like gooey brownies... it's perfect. Crunchy and crispy on the top, soft, gooey and magnificent underneath. Rich and delicious. It's a must make when you're crazing chocolate. The batter comes together quickly, but the wait time to bake is nearly an hour... don't let the anticipation get to you, it's worth the wait.

Pioneer Woman's Baked Fudge - Modified by Snow White

2 eggs
3/4 C sugar (Pioneer Woman suggests 1 C)
2 heaping T cocoa... I think Hershey's Dark Chocolate would be excellent
2 T flour
6 T butter (I used 3 when I made a half batch), melted (Pioneer Woman suggests 1 stick)
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs until scrambled, and then beat in sugar until combined. Add cocoa, flour, melted butter and vanilla. Mix until combined.

Pour batter into 4 creme brule dishes, or 1 8-inch square glass pan.

Set dishes or pan into a larger pan, filled halfway with water.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is set. A toothpick will not come out clean, but shouldn't be overly runny when batter is pulled out on the toothpick. Pioneer Woman says you can stick it back in, if you have second thoughts... just don't let it cook firmly like a brownie.

I halved the recipe, because I thought it would be best when it's warm, and it worked out great. We still had some leftovers... because it's so rich... and they warmed up beautifully the next day in the microwave! The only modifications I made to Pioneer Woman's original recipe were to use a little less sugar and butter!

  5. Yum, can't wait to try your version. I am always looking for ways to use a little less sugar and fat but still have FAB results!

  6. Can't go wrong with chocolate! I'm thinking that cutting down the sugar and butter was a good idea. I cut the sugar in my brownie recipe and you can't tell that I did.

  10. Hi SnoWhite, have a quick question about the recipe... My son is not a fan of dark chocolate, so I would want this to be more milk chocolate flavored. Is the cocoa sweet or unsweet? Thanks so much!

  11. @ Christine,

    Good question! Cocoa powder by itself is very bitter; you'd never want to just eat or use cocoa powder without adding sugar. That being said, using regular cocoa powder gives you a chocolate brownie kind of flavor... to achieve a "milk chocolate" one, I'd add in some milk chocolate chips.

  12. Thanks SnoWhite! I think we'll try the unsweet powder first, as my son doesn't seem to like chocolate chips much either! He's more of a white chocolate fellow... but I don't know if there is white chocolate "cocoa" out there! We may be trying these this weekend as a special dessert! I'll let you know, and hopefully these turn out better than my attempt at Lucy's Dinner Rolls! hee hee

  15. Looks great! I love looking at The Pioneer Woman's blog, but her recipes are so high in fat and calories, I can never justify that much in our daily diet! A steak sandwich recipe I wanted to make called for 1 1/2 sticks of butter! I made it with 2 TB and it was still great!
