Once again, it was 'SKOOKIE NIGHT' at our house. I made brownies and homemade hot fudge sauce. This is always a good treat and soooo much cheaper than what you'd pay if you got one at a restaurant.

First prepare your pans. Make sure that they are wiped clean and you can go ahead and spray them with a little non-stick cooking spray for safety sake. :-)

For the brownies:

2 cubes melted or soft butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine salt, flour, & cocoa in a small bowl and add to creamed ingredients. Then stir in chocolate chips. Reserve 1/2 cup batter. Divide remaining batter between four skookie pans. (this recipe works well in a 9x13. Just don't reserve that 1/2 cup batter:-) )
Put in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and set on cooling racks to cool slightly. (If baking in 9x13 pan, bake 30-35 minutes)
**either eat that reserved 1/2 cup of batter (the kids love it!) or just throw it away. If you don't, you'll have a real mess in your oven!**
Serve with vanilla ice cream and homemade hot fudge sauce. (recipe follows)

Homemade hot fudge sauce:

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup water
2 T. butter
2 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients well in a saucepan. Cook until thick. Serve warm over brownie and ice cream. Top with whatever fun toppings you choose :-)

Happy Cooking


  1. Oh my gosh! If I ate all the good stuff you make, I would be 100 pounds heavier. Thanks for all the good ideas.

  2. That sounds yummy. Will the hot fudge store in the fridge for a while?

  3. Yes the hot fudge stores well in the fridge. I just put it in a quart jar and store it in there. It keeps for quite a while... However it doesn't last long at my house :-)
