Super Bowl Party Treat – Mom’s Easy, Double Chocolate, Fudge Brownies!

Yes.  They’re just as good as they sound.

Up until late yesterday, I had big plans to make my favorite Chili Cheese Dip for an upcoming Super Bowl party we’re attending.  But plans changed last minute, and now my mother’s (should be) world famous Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies are now much more fit for our plans this weekend.  Nope, they’re not healthy at all.  But boy, they sure are an incredibly decadent indulgence that I’m willing to adjust my nutrition plan for (in moderation.)

Double Chocolate These brownies are incredibly simple to make, requiring little to no prep.  And I can say from experience, they are sure to be a real crowd-pleaser!  Make sure that you get your fill quickly, because if your home is anything like our’s, these will be gone before you know it.

Check out below for the in-depth details of how these brownies are made.  I can guarantee that you won’t find an easier recipe that is perfect for enjoying while cheering on the Broncos in the 50th Super Bowl.

The below directions go into in-depth detail with pictures.  Check towards the very bottom for the full recipe for printing purposes.

  • 1 pack of Chewy Fudge Brownie mix, 13×9 Family Size (we prefer Duncan Hines, but any brand should work)
  • 1/2 of an 11.5oz chocolate chip bag; we’re incredibly partial to Nestle milk chocolate because it melts much better than anything we’ve found
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (325 for dark or coated pans.) Grease the inside base of a 13”X 9” pan with cooking spray.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.  Include a few chocolate chips… just kidding, add a lot.  (We’re not making these for the health factor!)

2 5 16_4Carefully stir until well blended.  The full mixture should be a well mixed dark brown.  Be sure that all of the brownie mix is combined together, because it sometimes gets stuck in the bottom corners of the bowl.

2 5 16_6 Spread the mixture evenly into the greased pan and put into the oven immediately.  Go for the middle shelf.

2 5 16_7 Bake for 21-23 minutes for low altitude, 27-30 minutes for high altitude.  To test, insert a toothpick 1 inch from the edge of the pan.  When it comes out clean (or very close), your brownies are done.
