Description

Baked Fudge is difficult to explain, but I eat it all the time so let me try: Crusty, set upper crust … soft, but definitely not runny, filling. It really is the best of both worlds: chocolatey, but tastes like cake batter, but not as runny … but warm and delicious.

I’m sorry, but that’s the only way I know how to describe it.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons (heaping) Cocoa
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300 to 325 degrees.

Beat eggs until light in color. Beat in sugar until just combined. Add cocoa, flour, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix gently until well combined.

Pour batter into four large ramekins or one 8-inch square baking dish. Set ramekins or pan into a larger pan halfway full of water.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is firm but not set. Toothpick should come out…not clean, but mixture should not be overly runny. If you pull it out of the oven and have second thoughts, stick it back in for ten more minutes.

Serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream; whatever makes your skirt fly up.

I made a double batch of the baked fudge for a dinner party on Halloween night. I used large ramekins and topped it with whipped cream. Everyone raved about how delicious the baked fudge was…I will definitely be making this recipe again…super easy, simple ingredients, and a little “heaven on a spoon”…Thanks, Ree!

i had such high expectations for this dessert but it really failed. The upper crust was formed and was quite good and chewy, but the bottom part was still runny! I already baked it for almost an hour and there was still no noticeable difference.

I also made this for my hubby for (pre)Valentine’s celebration. I was amazed at how easy it was to make. I made it in the 8″x8″ pan as I could not find all 4 ramekins. It turned out amazing (also took me 56min to bake)! My brother (who stopped by) and hubby both commented (with small moanings) about its “incredible” flavor and maybe something about how it was the best dessert they’d ever had. I am enarmored as well. I’ll be making this often. Simple enough for last minute and decadent enough for a nice party!

This was an easy valentine’s day dessert — my husband, who thinks he “can’t cook,” made it all by himself! We found it needed to bake for 55 minutes. Perfect with freshly whipped cream!

Major chocolate love here. Very sweet – might reduce the sugar a bit next time just because. I doubled the recipe and baked it in 4oz ramekins – served them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. It was a hit with the family.

Delicious, easy, and impressive! If you are not a chocolate person, beware. These are very chocolatey and sweet. I thought it was almost on the verge of being too sweet. It needed some natural vanilla ice cream to cut the sweetness, and then it was perfect for me.

I made this one night for a dessert after a girls movies night…and I know that I didn’t let it bake long enough, but the girls needed their chocolate fix! I did make the homemade whipped cream and it all turned into a spoonable hot chocolate soup…still good, but not quite the fudge I was hoping for. I will definitely bake extra long the next time in order to get the right consistency. I did mine in ramekins at 325 for 50 minutes…definitely need at least an hour, maybe an hour and ten.
