Rodelle Gooey Fudge Brownies

You’ll find this recipe on our cocoa packaging cause it’s THAT GOOD! It is the perfect brownie recipe. Baked in a 9×13 pan, this is an excellent Brownie Recipe for an event or gathering. We actually love it as our “everyday” brownie recipe because we’ll keep half and freeze or share half!

Tip – make a regular batch and then make a batch with walnuts or even pecans! The bit of crunch is nice!

  • If you don’t have butter on hand or are looking for a higher rise brownie with crispier/crunchier edges – try using a neutral oil like canola or vegetable. It’s a 1:1 ratio!
  • For a more gooey brownie, bake batter at 325 degrees F for same duration of time
