I have had this recipe sitting, waiting to share with you since August when blog reader Jennie sent it to me.
Jennie and I have something in common – we both grew up on Carnation Chocolate Instant Breakfast! Chocolate for breakfast – yum!! So knowing my love for chocolate and anything with browned butter Jennie shared today’s recipe with me.
If you are like the rest of the world you may be doing a little holiday shopping this weekend – how many of you ventured out today on Black Friday?? I think chocolate and shopping go hand in hand, don’t you? Nothing better than a little chocolate to revive you and give you a second wind to keep going! Got to get those great deals!!
Butter Fudge Fingers will do just that. Not only are they a yummy, fudge, chocolate brownie but the browned butter icing is divine!
So when you get home from your Black Friday shopping spree whip up a batch of these yummy Butter Fudge Fingers and you’ll be ready to hit the stores again tomorrow! And remember chocolate is great for breakfast too!
Butter Fudge Fingers
2/3 C butter
4 squares semisweet chocolate ( 1 oz ea.)
1 tsp salt
2 C sugar
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
Melt butter and chocolate together, cool for 10 min. In bowl beat eggs and salt until foamy, gradually add sugar, mix well. Stir in chocolate mixture. Combine flour and baking powder and gradually add in chocolate mixture. Pour into greased 15×10 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Browned Butter Frosting—-this is what makes them!!!!!
1/2 C butter
1/3 C whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
4 C powdered sugar
Heat butter over medium heat until nice and brown – you want it a nice deep golden brown but not burned. Remove from heat and add cream and vanilla. Beat in sugar until smooth and thick. Frost and drizzle glaze over the top.
Chocolate chips and crisco or butter to thin chocolate if necessary. I used both semi sweet and milk chocolate for a two toned effect!
Melt together. I put it in a ziploc and cut one of the corners and make stripes over the top going in both directions.
