I have been on a sweet kick lately, and I want to eat sweets! Maybe it’s because I’m on a diet and want to eat everything in sight!!! I started out on my diet with the mindset that I would not eat any sweets. Well, that worked for about the first week, and then, here we are discussing Ultimate Double Chocolate Brownies.

I’ve had this recipe in the drawer in my kitchen for several years. I got this recipe from a friend, and I have used it many times. This is the best brownie recipe by far, and they always turn out fantastic. This recipe gets a gold star, and the brownies are requested for holidays and get togethers.

Is Chocolate Good for You?

I’m sure this topic can be debatable. But, in my opinion, IT IS! There have been a growing number of studies to suggest that it can be a hearthealthy choice and that is enough for me to complete my own scientific study.

Chocolate shows up at my house probably more than it should. My family seems to like chocolate as much as I do, and this Chocolate Brownie Trifle will certainly impress your guests and family. This is a true Chocolate lover’s dream dessert.

How To Make Ultimate Brownies with Hershey’s Chocolate Topping

First: Mix all brownie ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix well.
Next: Pour the brownie mixture into a well-greased pan and bake for 35 minutes.
Then: Bake and test. Bake for 35 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Don’t over bake- The toothpick inserted will be a little wet after 35 minutes.
Finally: Make the frosting. This is total yumminess! If you are a serious chocolate fan- you will love this frosting. The frosting is boiled for a few minutes and then poured over warm brownies.
Allow the brownies to cool before slicing. I know–what? Let cool. Yes, let the brownies and frosting have time to sit and chill before slicing. You will be able to slice them without crumbling. Or–go ahead and have one warm from the oven. I usually do!

 Do you want to talk about willpower? Try waiting for these brownies to cool before you eat them! You can slide them into the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.

Tips for Making Hershey’s Double Chocolate Brownies from Scratch

Grab some milk. This is a must-needed beverage when eating these brownies. They are rich and luscious.
Choose good quality ingredients. One of the best tips for making brownies is to use good-quality chocolate chips. There are several good brands of chocolate on the shelves; choose your favorite.
Mix ingredients well.
Don’t bake too long. It is always better to pull the brownies out of the oven early than to bake them too long—test brownies with a toothpick. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out with just a few crumbs attached. If you are not sure if they are completely done, go ahead and take them out of the oven. They will firm up as they cool! (Honestly, I prefer an undercooked brownie) Do you?

Allow chilling time before slicing. This is hard to do! We all like warm brownies from the oven. But letting them cool makes them firm up a bit, and the chocolate seems to stick to your teeth better. Trust me, they are worth the wait.

These Brownies have been tested repeatedly, and I can say (with 100% certainty) they are fabulous! They are so rich and chocolaty that you will be delighted with your first bite. Try some today.

  1. Super yummy! Recipe doesn’t seem difficult. I’ll bet I could try it. Confession: I’ve never tried to make homemade brownies. Always use the box stuff. LOL

  2. Wow Gina!! I was seriously considering to put myself on diet but not before I try this recipe 🙂 I have to admit, it is very difficult to cook and bake, and to be on diet, so I don’t blame you for cheating a bit after a week 😉
