I made these Fudge Topped Brownies recently for a bake sale my daughter was helping with for a club she participates in at the College of Charleston. It wasn’t your typical bake sale and these aren’t your typical bake sale brownies. It took place from 10pm to 2am on King St in Charleston. They sold out of everything they had and they had a ton of goodies. People must have had the munchies!

This recipe is great for a bake sale because it makes a huge batch and can be cut into a gazillion pieces. It’s thick and oh so rich and one of the best desserts ever!

Fudge Topped Brownies are perfect for bake sales.

  1. If made as described, that recipe has 8 -1/2 cups of sugar in it, plus marshmallow cream (=more sugar) and chocolate chips (=more sugar). Even if you cut this into small pieces and many of them, you are still getting a lot of sugar. We all need to think very carefully before eating things like this and that can be challenging because they are very appealing. Think, people!
