Aunt Pinkie’s Famous Fudgy Brownies: the fudgiest brownie recipe ever from my Aunt Pinkie! These brownies are a serious upgrade from a boxed brownie mix without a whole lot of extra effort. Hope you love ’em too!
We sure do love a good fudgy, homemade brownie at our house. And even if the pantry’s bare, seems I always have the simple staple ingredients on hand to mix up a batch of these scrumptious brownies.
So when my Aunt Pinkie gave me this recipe, I had to share it here. Aunt Pinkie’s Famous Fudgy Brownies are one of the fudgiest, most decadent brownies ever.
And they’re quick to whip up too. Seriously, they don’t take much longer than a box mix. But the difference is worth the extra few minutes. And good thing too, because we’re always needing a batch of brownies for something or other around here, whether it’s a classroom party, picnic, soccer party or last minute company.
These brownies are perfect warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream, drenched in hot fudge sauce. Now we’re talkin’!
Seriously, a box mix just doesn’t hold a candle to my Aunt Pinkie’s Famous Fudgy Brownies. These have all the goodies: butter, flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla and unsweetened baking chocolate. And a bonus: chocolate chips. Yeah. Delicious chocolate fudgy overload.
One great thing about these brownies is they stay soft and fresh for days. (If they last that long.) It must be the pure butter.
How to cut Aunt Pinkie’s Famous Fudgy Brownies:
- I learned this tip from a friend last year. Fudgy brownies cut best with a disposable plastic knife. Crazy, huh? So give it a whirl, tell me what you think.

When I first saw the photo of the brownies, I thought, “These look amazing!” Then I saw the ice cream and fudge on top and they looked even more awesome! Delicious!!

Aunt Pinkie is my new favorite idol. Just saying.
Dear Allie, these brownies are irresistible! I am looking forward to whipping up a batch of these brownies for the family. Pinning for later. xo, Catherine
Kristen @ A Mind Full Mom says
Allie, this is the exact recipe from my great, great Aunt Catherine. And we love it. Old fashioned recipes are often the best!
Kate @ Framed Cooks says
Recipes that we get from our family always taste a little sweeter, right? I feel this way about my grandma’s molasses cookies. 🙂 These brownies look amazing!! And thanks for the tip about the plastic knife – I also find a pizza cutter works great.
Joanie @ Zagleft says
Wow, those brownies look so good, especially the picture with the ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Now I’m craving brownies, it’s a good thing I have all of the ingredients already in my pantry. Thanks for the tip about using a plastic knife to cut the brownies out of the pan, I’ve never heard of that but will try it next time!
Aunt Pinkie’s brownies… oh yes, they’ve been a family favorite of ours forever, and that was before she added the chocolate chips. Oh my! So now they’ve made the Big Time — Allie’s blog! ([email protected] has it right. She definitely is worthy of being his new “favorite idol”!)

You got me with that second picture but I will be good and not whip up a batch for breakfast.

Dang, Allie.. I thought I was going to have to bust out my EpiPen just from looking at those fudgy brownies!! lol. I can see why they are “famous”, but the should be world wide famous based on your pictures! They look incredibly soft, rich and decadent! Needless to say, I want to bang my head against a wall for being allergic to cocoa. I will have to make these for Boy and drool with envy as he devours them! Pinned! Cheers, lovie! P.S. My dad always swore by using plastic cutlery for brownies. XO

My husband’s birthday is coming up, and I can’t imagine a dessert that he would enjoy more than this one right here! Chocolaty goodness like this with a scoop of ice-cream on top! Thanks, Allie! His birthday lands on a weekday this year. While we are planning on going out for a celebratory supper on the weekend, I wanted to cook a really lovely meal on his actual birthday. You’ll laugh, but I am planning the whole menu from the amazing recipes that you share on your fabulous blog! Take care and I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend. xo

Dear, sweet Allie,
It’s bad enough that I have to sit here on the OTHER SIDE of this screen and drool over these fudgiest-of-fudgey, brownies, but then you decide to torture me more with that picture of those warm decadent brownies topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream and drenched in hot fudge sauce…URRRGGGHHHH…me want….now….
Liz @ I Heart Vegetables says
Ohhh man I love fudgy brownies! Especially with a scoop of ice cream on top 🙂 YUM!
How many grams is 4 squares of chocolate please.
Hi Ellyna, 4 squares is 4 ounces or 113.398 grams. Great question and I am going to go into the recipe and clarify that. Thanks so much for dropping by, and happy baking! 🙂
Ellyna Eng says

Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen says
OH my gosh! I am literally drooling over these chocolicious fudgy brownies, Allie. These are one of the fudgiest fudge brownies I have ever seen, no wonder they are that famous. And that ice-cream on top? You are killing me. Family recipes are real treasures and I so glad that you shared this recipe with us. Have a nice weekend my friend.
Perfect timing!! Last week, I promised my grandchildren (while visiting them in Seattle), that we’ll make homemade brownies when I’m back again in a couple weeks. Now I have the perfect recipe–and simple, too, for little bakers!This brings back awesome memories of my Mom’s brownies. I’m sure it will be a keeper! Thanks, Allie!
That’s wonderful Sue, I hope you make some wonderful memories together! XO
Wow, these look great!, Allie! Almost as great as having an “Aunt Pinkie”– what a great name! I look forward to giving this recipe a ‘go’– Thanks for sharing!
Hooray for Aunt Pinkie!! These look incredible!! I want to know who the luck duck was that got to eat that brownie sundae? Boy does that look delicious!
