My blog is about sharing. Sharing food, sharing moments, sharing the love. Once I made this fudge brownie recipe with condensed milk, I gave myself permission to be selfish. This title does not kid, it is the ultimate brownie recipe with condensed milk you will ever encounter.
This fudge brownie recipe with condensed milk reminds me of my Oreo Cheesecake Brownie Recipe. It’s a fun and unique twist to a classic treat that’s even more delicious and just a delight to indulge in on rainy Saturday. The top has this nice crunchy layer while the inside of the brownie is very gooey. Creating a brownie recipe with condensed milk is what will elevate your brownies to the next level. The chocolate chips blends into the brownie make it very soft and chocolaty, while the condensed milk is what makes the inside so gooey.
The result of this brownie recipe was beyond my expectations. Fabian refused to share it with anyone and to be honest it was indeed too delicious to share. He literally ate half of the batch by himself. Breakfast, lunch, and dessert. I think I made him fall in love with me even more, just by creating this fudge brownie recipe. But, let me not put all the blame on him. I did my fair share of eating as well. Every time he offered me a piece I would say, “just give me half”, and then ended up eating a whole piece of the brownie.
How to Make this Brownie Recipe with Condensed Milk
Making brownies, in general, is pretty easy but this brownie recipe with condensed milk has an added layer of complexity. Now, don’t get discouraged just yet. While this recipe has some extra baking steps, it’s still pretty easy to make.
The idea is to create an inner layer of condensed milk and gooey chocolate. I don’t like for the inside (the condensed milk) to be completely runny but, instead, be absorbed into the brownie making the inside soft and gooey.
To get that consistency you have to bake 1/2 of the brownie mix halfway. Bake it just enough that the batter starts to set but isn’t yet baked through and through. Then you add the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and the last half of the batter. By baking the lower layer first, you prevent the condensed milk from sinking to the bottom.
It’s important to know that a brownie will keep “baking” until it cools down completely. That means that you have to take it out when you insert a toothpick in the center and moist crumbs are attached to it.
How to Melt Chocolate
Melting chocolate can be really tricky. Melting it in the microwave is the simplest way, but if you heat it just 2 seconds too long it overheats and you get lumps. To avoid this, open microwave and stir it continuously (like every 25-30 second).
The safest way is to melt the chocolate au bain-marie. Meaning, placing a heatproof bowl on top of a pot with boiling water. It’s a bit more work but you’re ensured to get silky melted chocolate.
How to Serve the Brownie
This brownie can be served as a simple treat, but you can also take it up a notch and make a decadent dessert out of it. I have a brownie trifle recipe that uses this brownie recipe with condensed milk. It’s the perfect date night dessert.
You can also take a piece and serve it with whipped cream or ice cream. Since the brownie is more on the sweet side, something sour or tangy would pair great to bring a little freshness into the taste. Maybe whipped cream and berries in the summer?
