Fudge Brownies with Chocolate Frosting

Super moist, super fudgy and slathered with a thick layer of cream cheese chocolate frosting – these brownies will be your new favorite. 

I have a love affair with brownies. Fudgy, dense, chocolate-y. I’d opt for Birthday Brownies instead of Birthday Cake any day.

Now – I love my Triple Chocolate Brownies but recently I’ve been on a quest to create the ultimate fudge brownies with chocolate frosting. Brownies that are chewy, fudgy, super moist AND can smothered in a thick layer creamy chocolate frosting without being too sweet.

You see, my Triple Chocolate Brownies are the type for eating with a spoonful of ice cream and chocolate sauce. But sometimes you need that classic frosted brownie like the ones you buy in a giant slab from the corner bakery.

And today – I have the perfect recipe. They’re dense, fudgy and have a delicious chocolate flavor without being too rich or bitter. Then to top it all off, they’re frosted with cream cheese chocolate frosting. The slight tang of the cream cheese pairs so perfectly with the chocolate and balances out the sweetness.

And because cream cheese frosting > non-cream cheese frosting.

And then that frosting – Oh my…. I’ve honestly debated if I should even make the brownies and not just go straight for this Cream Cheese Chocolate Frosting. It’s creamy. It’s not too sweet. And it’s so delicious. You’ll notice that the recipe makes a rather large amount – but I don’t think anyone will be complaining about the thick slather of frosting on top.

Fudgy Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Frosting…. It’s LOVE.

Ingredients
For the Brownies
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter , 1 stick plus 2 extra tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa , sifted
  • 2 large eggs , room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk , room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1/3 cup butter , softened to room temperature
  • 1/3 cup brick-style cream cheese , softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup natural cocoa powder
  • 1 - 1 and 1/2 cups confectioner's/icing/powdered sugar , sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line an 8x8 inch square baking dish with aluminium foil leaving an overhang on each side and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Alternatively, line the pan with parchment paper (do not spray with cooking spray if using parchment. Set aside.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter in short bursts. Once melted, stir in the corn syrup using a large rubber spatula or wooden spoon and allow the mixture to cool slightly. Stir in the vanilla & cocoa - and if there are clumps of cocoa whisk the mixture until it's smooth. Then Add in the eggs, egg yolk & sugars and whisk until combined. Be careful to only whisk the batter until combined and not continue mixing past this point, otherwise the batter will become more cake like because more air is added. Finally fold in the flour and salt using your large wooden spoon or spatula.
  3. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes. The top of the batter should look set - but you won't need to bake past this point. I usually start checking at about 27 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the brownies to cool in their pan at room temperature.
  4. Once the brownies are cool, make the frosting. In a large bowl using a stand or hand held electric mixer, beat together the butter and cream cheese on medium speed until combined and no lumps remain. Turn the mixer down to low and add in the cocoa. If you prefer a stronger chocolate flavor - add 1/3 cup but if you prefer not quite so strong add only 1/4 cup. Once combined, add in the powdered sugar about 1/2 cup at a time until the desired consistency is reached. The frosting should be thick, but definitely thinner than frosting used for piping. If your frosting seems too thick - add 1 tablespoon of milk or cream. Finally, beat in the vanilla and salt.
  5. Lift the brownies from the pan using the overhang of parchment or aluminium foil and peel back the edges. Frost the brownies using a thick layer and cut into squares. I made 16 total.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
