My husband Merrill and I tasted a restaurant’s brownie dessert, and it was hard to beat. I topped it though with ice cream and homemade hot fudge. —Lise Thomson, Magrath, AB

Nutritional Facts

1 brownie with about 2 tablespoons fudge sauce: 405 calories, 18g fat (10g saturated fat), 82mg cholesterol, 210mg sodium, 60g carbohydrate (52g sugars, 1g fiber), 3g protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Line a 13x9-in. baking pan with foil, letting ends extend up sides; grease foil. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in oil and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and cocoa; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  2. Spread into prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. For fudge sauce, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in sugar, cocoa, water, corn syrup, vanilla and salt until blended. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, 3-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and sauce is smooth, stirring frequently.
  4. Lifting with foil, remove brownies from pan. Cut into eighteen 3x2-in. rectangles. Top each brownie with ice cream, fudge sauce and a cherry.
    Freeze option: Securely wrap and freeze cooled brownies in plastic wrap and foil. To use, thaw at room temperature.
    Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"Brownie was amazing but it did stick to the foil. So maybe I didn't put enough spray. I may try just in pan next time. It did take an extra 10 mins to bake. At 30 mins I put heat to 350 and added 10 mins. Very good!!! I will make sauce tonight ( :"
