Delicious Chocolate Fudge Brownies!!

Note - Please use EXACT measurements to achieve best results!

Makes approximately 16 brownies, depending on cut
You Will Need
  • 10 tablespoons (145 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups (250 g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (65 g) unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1/4 rounded teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (70 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup (75 g) chopped walnuts or pecans 
Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 325 degrees F (163 C). 
Using a medium bowl - start with the butter, beat until creamy. Combine sugar, cocoa powder and the salt. 

Once mixed, gradually start adding the eggs, beating one by one until they are fully blended in the mix. 

Add in your vanilla, and gradually sift in the flour and baking powder. Once all in incorporated begin to dad the walnuts or pecans. You may want to beat them first until they become very small before putting them into the mixture. 

Add everything to the mixture, I decided to add chocolate chips (both milk and white) for a more moist texture. 

Once all is mixed together, grease down the pan you want to use and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted into the center and come out almost clean (you want it to be a little moist with batter).

Once cooked, put on a rack and allow to cool. 

For the topping, in two separate bowls, put both white and dark chocolate and allow to melt. Once melted, place on the cool fudge and begin to decorate.

Your warmth

I feel your warmth around me
Although you're miles away 
Yet I refuse to let paranoia take control 
risking the love I want desperately to stay. 

So you may think that I am crazy 
You're probably right to think so 
But when love comes so innocently
Rare as it is to maintain and hold 

I dream of you when I look up to the stars
As they sparkle and form your face
I think of you when I kneel down and pray 
To thank The Lord for blessing me with your soul in my way 

So I always feel you're warmth around
I hope now you understand the depth 
I crave your presence around me
Although we have not just yet met

The child of the dark

Of all the things I've aimed to be, 

this by far is the worse I've been. 

Of love so dark the devils would run, 

from a soul so corrupt and evil who sucks you into hell. 

Still he would hold his head high and deceive those around, 

Conniving lover the world has yet to see. 

Though I never believed the warnings around, 

Until reality had drawn me in... into a love so bitter, destroying the innocence in me. 

So began my story of a young girl in love,

With the worse man that has ever been. 

The notes I've left behind to warn the heads or two, 

to avoid such human beings although beauty will delude. 

Still he smiles at me, like a child of the dark,

alone in a corner holding my beating heart.

bend in and out of shape, burst into a thousand flames of love so devine yet so toxic at the same time. 


His smile so bright like the sun beaming light rays in my eyes, like mockshood absorbed through my veins; killing me with it's poison yet I'm so quiet and ashamed still I crave to be abused by my lover my very own servitude. 

I crawl away like the dark night turning to day and hold myself accountable for the pain I've inflicted on my bleeding heart.

Yet with every nasty step of your departing feet I find comfort in how good it feels to loath myself and weep 

Now alone quivering in the dark, 

for all those wrong doings I've done to my heart. 

Yet I still force the smile on myself suppressing the acknowledgment that loneliness is now my fate.
