Quick and Easy Fudgy Brownies

I love Brownies.

The end!

I love brownies, who does not? I might say few people (like the hubs 🤔 here). I can make a pan and finish it in a few days… With the help of the toddler! Mostly me I would say.

A few years back, when I worked in Louisville, Ky; there was a pathologist in the group I worked for who made brownies great enough to make you want to break your fast, dieting goal! Yes, they were that good. We would ask for the recipe and he said he got a box from Costco. I did not have a Costco membership then so, I awaited (like everyone else) when he made brownies.

Fast forward to having a kid, getting a Costco membership and discovering a box of Ghirardelli brownie mix. Since then I have not (I REPEAT) NOT bought any other brand to make brownies. Every time I have made brownies from this mix, I have often got compliments and questions about how I made them.

I just discovered something else to make this brownies even better. Hot Fudge Topping! I had bought it for ice cream but had not used it and I decided to add it to the brownies and have the colleagues at work try it. Needless to say, it was gone in 45 minutes after the first piece was had. So what is the recipe?

Here it is:

1 box of Ghirardelli Brownie mix.

Follow the instructions on the box for

1/3 cup of oil

1/3 cup of coffee (instead of water)

1 egg

2 tablespoons of hot fudge topping


Stir all the ingredients into a large bowl

Follow baking instructions regarding the pan to use and bake times!
