SUPER MOIST Fudgy TRIPLE Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Fudge Glaze - Church PotLuck Dessert

Pin It Now!

We all get asked to contribute sometimes.  Maybe for a family gathering, Holiday meal, neighborhood BYODish party or for my personal favorite, the Church PotLuck dinner.

It always takes a bit of nerve to bring brownies.  First, everyone will assume that you just opened a box so you will have to explain over and over again that these are a bit better than the box (lots of bits better).  But, once someone takes a bite, word will spread...

Moist and fudgy cake brownies... just a  little ooey and gooey!  There is a tiny extra texture in the cake as there are mini chocolate chips inside!

Now for many, that would be good enough.  Adding the thin layer of sweet fudgy glaze on the top gives this that "next level" of look and taste.

Total package, best brownie EVER!

SUPER MOIST Fudgy TRIPLE Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Fudge Glaze

This is simple... A little special, just a little mixing, a little stirring and a little baking and you have a fresh made, home made, brag worthy dish that is always well received. One of those, "Anyone can make this" Dishes. Plus, as I like to say...

Church PotLuck Suppers are a chance to share God's Bounty with your Church family and friends. That bounty should be made with love and caring.

OK... Here's what I did...

SUPER MOIST Fudgy TRIPLE Chocolate Brownies with
Chocolate Fudge Glaze

  • For Brownies ...
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa
  • Pinch of Baking Powder
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • For Chocolate Fudge Glaze
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 TBS Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Whole Milk
  • 4 TBS Butter
  • Splash of Vanilla
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (Flour, Cocoa, Sugar and Baking Powder).
  3. Mix in the wet ingredients (Eggs, Olive Oil and Vanilla). Be careful to not over mix or the brownies will fall in the center. Mix by folding wet into dry until just combined and all dry ingredients are glazed chocolate.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and fold in a few more times until well mixed.
  5. Pour into 9X9 greased baking pan
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before adding glaze topping
  7. While the brownies are cooling, prepare the Ganache... Over medium low heat, in a small sauce pan, combine sugar, Cocoa and Milk (Whole Milk only please). Continue to stir and gradually increase heat until the mixture begins to boil.
  8. Allow a slow boil for 1 minute. Add the Butter and Vanilla and continue to stir over medium heat until the mix begins to thicken.
  9. Pour Glaze over cooled brownies, making sure all are coated.
  10. Cut into 9 one inch square brownies, serve chilled and ENJOY!


So,  I am pleased to list this as one of my Growing list of  "52 Ways to Cook COOKIE, BARS and TRUFFLES"!!!

Old school like classic criss cross peanut butter to new takes on interesting recipes like a beautiful Red Velvet with the cream cheese mixed inside the cookie, accented with white chocolate chips!  Even a Pineapple Cream Cheese EASY Bar with only 5 ingredients! 
Stop on by, there's always a new cookie in the cookie jar!


This recipe has also been added to my growing list of
"52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
