The Perfect Fudgy Brownie Recipe is soft and moist, almost cake-like, but not quite. Chocolatey goodness in the batter AND with added chips.

The Perfect Fudgy Brownie Recipe

Welcome back! It’s 2015 and a brand new year of fun and delicious Secret Recipe Club recipes. This is our first one of the New Year for Group A, and I’m excited to jump back in. And I jumped right back in with these deliciously, fudgy perfect brownies!

This month, the blog I had was Oreo’s and Cool Whip: Things I Make (For Dinner). In case you’ve never been to her blog, you totally need to go check out her About Page and learn why she chose her Oreo’s and Cool Whip name. I totally get it, and would have let the flame wars begin in much the same way. <wink>

As is completely usual every month, I agonize and make lists of all the possible recipes I could make. On our list this month were: Cheesy Bacon-Onion PinwheelsBuffalo Chicken LasagnaMargarita Donuts or Lemon-Scented Pull Apart Coffee Cake.

The Perfect Fudgy Brownie Recipe

We finally decided to go with her Fudgy Brownies because they just sounded so good and she got them from Everyday Food from 2005 and I knew they had to be good. Plus, 2005 was a good year for me, and I thought it was significant. I made the most minor tweak in the world, by simply adding a cup of chocolate chips, because I had just that much I really needed to use in a recipe before they needed to be tossed. So I added them to this, and I’m seriously NOT sorry I did.

These were incredible. Rich, chocolaty flavor with that lovely fudgy texture. Moist, soft and utterly addicting. I loved the crunch from the nuts, and the sweet bites of melted chocolate inside.

This is an exceptional recipe and will be made again and again!
