Fudgy Brownies With Toffee & Nuts


Fudgy brownies with toffee & nuts are rich, dense, and intensely chocolatey~almost a cross between brownies and fudge.

If you are in the “fudgy” brownie camp, this recipe is for you! It is so rich that a small bite will satisfy most folks’ sweet tooth cravings.

The toffee bits are key to the richness of the brownies. They add a hint of buttery toffee flavor AND add some heft to the brownies. I’ve made these without the bits and felt the brownies were too gooey.

Melting chocolate: You can melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave IF you are careful; however, I prefer the stovetop/double boiler method. I think it is more foolproof than microwave melting, but certainly do what suits you best.

Savvy Tip: I make these a day before cutting and serving them. They need to “set” overnight so they will firm up for cutting. If you don’t have overnight, at least make these several hours before serving.

Make ahead: These brownies can be made ahead and stored in the freezer. When ready to serve, thaw on the counter to room temperature, or microwave for a warm, ooey gooey chocolate treat.
