Chocolate Fudge Stuffed Blondies


This recipe showed up on Reddit the other day, and since my mother-in-law loves chocolate, I decided to give it a go, and send her a batch.

  • ⅔ cup Brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  2. Stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted and the mixture is combined.
To bake

  2. Layer half the cookie dough mixture on the base of the pane. Pressing evenly into the corners.
  3. Pour the cooled chocolate fudge mixture over the cookie dough. Topping with the remaining cookie dough. Spreading evenly with your fingers.
  4. Bake in a  350F (175C) degree oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Here are my notes on the recipe :

  • Better to use a smaller baking pan than a larger one, since I had trouble making the top layer cover the fudge layer.
  • Probably no need to put down parchment. I was able to release the squares easily, just by greasing the pan with the butter wrappers.
  • The video makes the fudge center seem more gooey than it actually ends up being. Once cooled, it solidifies and while it’s good, it’s not gooey.
