Fudge Frosted Chunky Monkey Brownies

May 10, 2018Teresa

Boy, oh boy, I hit a Grand Slam with this recipe! Fudge Frosted Chunky Monkey Brownies are absolutely divine! These heavenly brownies start with my fantastic Chunky Monkey Brownies. Those highly rated brownies were originally made with chocolate baking melts which are huge. They disperse chocolate throughout the whole brownie. I used chocolate chunks for this recipe since I had them on hand. I was also trying to get rid of some pecans so I threw them into the mix.

Finally, I iced the brownies with my favorite Fudge Frosting. It didn’t hurt to add a little Blue Bell ice cream and some Ghirardelli chocolate sauce. 🙂 Yes, Fudge Frosted Chunky Monkey Brownies were awesome. They are triple the chocolate threat when you add the Ghirardelli chocolate sauce over top. It’s a terrific dessert for tailgating parties, potlucks, summer holiday fun or backyard barbecues.

I got a call a few weeks ago from our church secretary who asked if I could make some brownies for a youth/parent meeting. I made up a batch of Banana Sea Salt Caramel Blondies and these jewels. Both had icing and both were scrumptious. Our youth minister told me he and one of his student leaders sampled both of them. Both brownies were a rave in their opinions.

If you need a chocolate fix, it doesn’t get any better than Fudge Frosted Chunky Monkey Brownies. They’re sure to cure any sugar addiction or sweet tooth craving you’re having at the moment. But be warned! They are addictive. Once you start eating them, it’s hard to stop.

Pat into a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish. I had to moisten my hands to do this.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool completely before adding fudge frosting.
