A chewy fudge-type brownie that is perfect for any occasion, and a hit at any potluck.


  • 1 cup of butter, softened
  • 2 cups of organic sugar
  • 1 1/4 c. flour, all purpose
  • 1 cup. hazelnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup. cocoa powder (or 4 oz. melted dark chocolate)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, semi-sweet for topping (optional)


  • Add butter to melted chocolate or cocoa powder.
  • Mix well and stir in sugar.
  • When well mixed add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one.
  • Add flour.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Add nuts.
  • Spread in a greased rectangular casserole dish.  Batter will be very stiff and come up about 1 1/2 inches on the sides.
  • Bake at 350F for 25 to 30 min.
  • When removed from the oven, mixture will appear soft and under-cooked.
  • You want to cook it until only about 10 – 20% in the centre is under-cooked and the rest seems firm.
  • Remove from oven and put on cooling rack.
  • Sprinkle top with 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, while still hot.
  • Allow chocolate chips to melt completely.
  • Spread to an even layer over top with a knife.
  • Allow to cool completely and cut into squares.  They firm up as they cool.


These brownies are awesome served hot with ice-cream, served at room temperature with tea or coffee, or served frozen.
