- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons water
- 4 cups (24 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- In a saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar, butter and water to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips and vanilla; stir until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well mixed. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; stir into chocolate mixture. Stir in another cup of chips. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 325° for 35 minutes. Cool completely. Place in the freezer for 30-40 minutes (do not freeze completely). Cut into bars.

Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; immediately sprinkle with nuts. Allow to harden. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Yield: 3 dozen.
Reviews forChocolate Dipped Brownies
"Very decadent and a bit too sweet for my taste. I may make the brownie recipe again without the chocolate covering."
"Delicious! What a great idea. Next time, I will cut the brownies into 1x1 squares since they are so rich."
"Now why didn't I think of dipping them in sprinkles - grandkids loved this idea and the brownie was awesome too"
"Very easy and a big hit!!!! Thank you for sharing, will definately make these again"
"Looks delicious and that's good enough for me!"
"These brownies are a bit rich, but can be easily be cut into bite sized portions. They did take a little bit longer to prepare than expected. Next time I wouldn't make these on the same day I was cooking a big family dinner. As far as the appearance is concerned, the first several covered nicely. As the chocolate ran low in the bowl, the others didn't have as smooth of a coating. Next time I would melt some additional chocolate chips for better coverage. Otherwise, my kids loved these brownies and I will be baking them again soon!"
"Too sweet for me, really good overall."
"This is a delicious and rich recipe. I made it for my family and and some friends and they all raved about it. The only downside was how long it took-30 minutes to make, 30 minutes to bake, 40 minutes to freeze, and about 10 minutes to dip. I'll only make them for holidays, but I'll still be making them."
"These are the best brownies I've made so far. I couldn't dip the brownies because I ran out of chocolate chips, but the brownie itself was delicious. Will be making again."
"The brownies were excellent but I had a hard getting the chocolate to flow nicely and not break the brownies."
