Easy Fudge Brownies

My sister-in-law recently hosted a Pampered Chef party and I was super excited. I was able to get something I've wanted for a long time: a toaster oven sized baking stone bar pan. I was completely devastated when it came in the mail and it was broken and I had to wait another for a second one to come in the mail. Anyway, there was a little recipe for brownies that came in the box with the baking stone. Well, we all know I love brownies. This recipe was perfect for 2 reasons. First, it was a smaller sized batch, just big enough for my 7 1/4" x 9 1/2" baking stone (an 8" x 8" is just about the same size), so I wouldn't end up eating a whole 9" x 13" inch batch of brownies. Second, it gave me a chance to use my new pan, although I baked them in my oven, not my toaster oven. These brownies were supper yummy. They  reminded me of the Little Debbie Fudge Brownies.  

Easy Fudge Brownies

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts,, divided (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8" x 8" or 7" x 9" pan with nonstick spray. Combine sugar, melted butter, egg and vanilla in a medium sized bowl; mix well. Combine flour, cocoa powder, and a salt in a small bowl. Add dry ingredient mixture to wet ingredient mixture. Mix until smooth, Batter will be thick. Stir in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and, if desired, 1/4 cup walnuts to batter. Spread batter evenly in pan. Bake 18-20 minutes or until brownie is set in center. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Immediately sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over hot brownie. Let chocolate stand 5 minutes or until softened; spread melted chocolate evenly. If desired, sprinkle with remaining walnuts.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
