Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Raise your hand if you are a big fan of brownies!  I thought so  . . .  me too!  I simply adore brownies of any kind.  I make really good brownies.  

When I worked at the manor the Mr liked for me to bake him a pan of brownies at least once every couple of weeks.  I am sure that missed my brownies when I finished working there. 

My brownie recipe produces dense, fudgy brownies, depending on how long you cook them for. You can cook them a bit longer if you want cakey brownies, but  . . .  come on  . . .  fudge . . .  

I remember attending a cooking show when I lived down South.  The Celebrity Chefs on it were the Tanner Brothers and Paul Rankin, with guest star Vanessa Phelps.  

They did a  Brownie Challenge and what they made were not Brownies in my opinion  . . . .

They were wet and gloopy.  You should be able to hold a good brownie in your hands to eat it. It would have been impossible to hold those.  

I was most disappointed.  Most disappointed . . . I guess I expected more from Celebrity Chefs than that.

What you see here today is my regular brownie recipe amped up with the addition of three kinds of chocolate chips.  

Well, semi sweet chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. 

You could use butterscotch chips if you can find them and if you can't find either butterscotch or peanut butter chips, add milk chocolate chips in their place.

They get stirred into the batter prior to baking and then when the brownies are finished, you melt a few more and flick them melted  . . .  

one at a time over the top . . .  decoratively like  . . .

I wanted to bake something nice for my next door neighbour and her son.  She has been ever so kind to us throughout this pandemic.

Whenever she is getting a grocery order, or her friend Julie is going to the shops for her, she always messages me on facebook  to ask me can she get me anything.  

That has been a real gift to me.  Milk, bread . . . prune juice, butter, whatever I am in need of.

It is really thoughtful of her and I so appreciate it. 

 Because she has fibromyalgia and diabetes she is on the ultra vulnerable  list and gets delivery slots for things much easier.

I would have thought with my husband's age, his cancer, radiotheraphy combined with my diabetes and high blood pressure we would have been on the list as well, but nope! We are not.

It doesn't make sense but it is what it is.  

In any case Max and Cory have been really good to us and so today I baked these brownies for them to show them just how appreciate we truly are.

I hope that they like them!  I confess, I did keep a few back for me, but only a few because one . . .  I am a diabetic and shouldn't eat stuff like this and two, my husband hates chocolate bakes. (I know, not human)

Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Yield: 16
Moist and delicious with full on chocolate flavour, these are everything a good brownie should be, with three different chocolate chips inside and a glaze of the same after baking!


For the brownies:
  • 240g (1 cup) butter
  • 140g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 4 ounces good quality bitter chocolate
  • 4 large free range eggs
  • 400g (2 cups) sugar
  • 1 TBS vanilla essence (YES 1TBS)
  • Pinch salt
  • 45g white chocolate chips (1/4 cup)
  • 45g semi sweet chocolate chunks (1/4 cup)
  • 45g peanut butter chips (1/4 cup) (if you can't get those, use milk chocolate chips)
To glaze:
  • 2 TBS chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 TBS  semi sweet chocolate , melted
  • 2 TBS peanut butter chips, melted (if you can't get those, use milk chocolate chips)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180*C/350*F. Grease and flour the bottom of an 9-inch square  baking tin. Tap out any extra flour.
  2. Melt the butter along with the chocolate over low heat in a large pot. Allow to cool, then stir in the sugar, eggs (one at a time) vanilla, flour and salt, mixing with a wooden spoon and being careful not to over mix, no more than 50 strokes! Fold in all of the chocolate chips
  3. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out a little wet if you want fudgy brownies. Bake until it comes out cleaner if you want cake type brownies, about 40 to 45 minutes for the fudgy ones.
  4. Flick the melted chocolates one at a time over the top of the brownies and then place them in the refrigerator to cool completely before cutting into squares to serve.

If you wanted to, and you had brownie mix in the house, you could just make that and stir the three chocolate chips into them and then melt some to drizzle on the top afterwards.  Not quite as good as these I am sure, but whatever floats your boat!

  1. Those Brownies look delicious! Your friends must have been delighted to receive them. It's lovely that she can help you and Todd with a few groceries. She is a good neighbour as are you. Hugs and love, Elaine

    1. It really does mean a lot to us Elaine! We live in strange times indeed! Lov and hugs, xoxo

  2. I struggled to get a slot for my shielding parents. In the end just repeatedly logging onto Tesco at various times during any given day I got a slot. We have managed 3 in ten weeks. Maybe try odd times during the day?

    1. I just keep trying Amanda! It shouldn't be so hard! xoxo


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you so do not be shy!
