Baked Fudge~ The Best Chocolate Dessert Ever

This will be a hit everytime you serve it.  I've been making this for years and it's a homerun, every single time.    It is so darn good!  I am eating leftovers as I type this out and I think we may need another batch at my house tonight.  It's like a mix of hot fudge sauce, super gooey, rich chocolate cake, and brownie batter...which I admit I like better than brownies.  Baked Fudge is hard to describe really, other than to say that just one serving is usually not enough!  
 ...And, it is super easy to make...just be sure to do the IMPORTANT step!

Baked Fudge

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flower
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup chopped nuts (optional...I use walnuts)
2 tsp vanilla

 Ok, I used pecans this time, took a vote here and decided we prefer the walnuts...just our opinion.

Cream eggs and sugar
Add melted butter. Blend.
Add cocoa and four.  Blend.
Stir in nuts and vanilla.
Pour into greased 9 x 9 pan.  IMPORTANT:  Place pan in another pan with about an inch of water inside.

Let kids (my Kalyn on the right and her friend Courtney on the left) lick the bowl and apply to face as shown below.
Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes until a crust forms on top and it's soft and gooey inside. 
DEVOUR while warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  Refrigerate leftovers, if you have any, and then heat in the microwave when you're ready for round two.

  1. Welllll, there goes that 12# I lost last month!
    Can't pass up anything chocolate for sure.

    Love the girls ... cute!

    TY for sharing ...

    Have a great weekend.
    TTFN ~

  2. Baked fudge, new one on me, but anything with Chocolate hubby will love, maybe a St.Valentine's treat! Thanks for posting.

  3. Yum sounds like my kind of treat!!
    just wondering tho something in the directions doesn't sound right..
    Cream butter and sugar then add melted butter. Am I missing something here?

  4. Oh I just love these ooey, gooey, (fingers crossed-no fat, diet) desserts-heaven:@)

  5. Debbie, I just sent you an email...I'm the one missing something, and that would be my mind, most of the time. I've fixed this already and it should read cream the eggs and sugar now. Thank you for pointing this out to me!


  6. Ginny,

    I will say that many times when I make this and offer 'Baked Fudge' to my guests that they tell me they've never heard of it. So, you're not the only one this is new to...and it is a wonderful Valentines dessert.



  7. Sounds sooooo good, but when I read it has 2 cups of sugar in it, I gained weight just thinking about it. It sounds wonderful and I will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This looks amazing! I am SO trying this, thanks!

  9. That sounds delicious and decadent. That's a keeper.

  10. Nancy, That sounds and looks absolutely delicious! Mmmmmm! Can I run over and have some? Love your photos, too. Nicely done!
    Blessings, Beth

  11. Yowee! I don't know what to say LOL! I'll start with YUM and end with YUM!
    But...I scored a transferware vase today that I can't find online...can I show it soon and ask you about it?

  12. OH WOW!!! what a YUMMY!!! treat and with Ice Cream even BETTER!!! CHOCOLATE is one of my downfalls and anything made with chocolate is a must try.

  13. I would be eating the leftovers while I was writing this too. This sounds delicious, kind of a hot lava cake on a large scale. It definitely has to have the vanilla ice cream to go with it too. Yum! Good thing I never made any resolutions!

  14. I know for a fact, I would use pecans as you did...but oooooooooooo, what a treat for us!!! I'm glad I stopped by before it was all gone. Thanks for the yummies.

    Come on over to my show n tell [link]

    Happy Weekend!!
