Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes For Two


Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes For Two from @chocolatemoosey

Sometimes I can’t think of anything to say, which is why most people perceive me as quiet. I’ve been struggling to come up with this post for these Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes. Sure, I could’ve been mainstream and said this is the perfect dessert to end your Valentine’s Day dinner because it’s decadent and only makes two. Or I could’ve boo hooed about how I’m alone for love day and plop myself on the couch eating both of these while watching sappy romantic movies and crying in between bites. But neither are true. I have no date and I’m not going to cry. So here I am back to square one with nothing to say except that these Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes are so rich and decadent, it’s every chocoholic’s dream.

Ying and yang. That’s how chocolate and vanilla works. You either love chocolate or you love vanilla. Very rarely do you see someone go crazy over both. But pair them together and you have another story. When something is so sinful and chocolatey, it’s begging for vanilla. And when a hot fudgy brownie is fresh from the oven, it’s screaming out for cold vanilla ice cream. It’s only a crime if you don’t.

Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes For Two from @chocolatemoosey

As I said at the beginning, this recipe makes two brownie sundaes. Make it for date night or save the extra one for later. Or if you multiply the recipe, make several batches and have a sundae party. Set out different dessert sauces and toppings. Just don’t hold me responsible for the sugar rush.

Yields 2

Deep Dish Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes For Two
Save Recipe


1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup + 2 teaspoons semisweet chocolate chips
1 egg
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup flour
Vanilla ice cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Have two 6-ounce ramekins ready.
  2. In a medium heatproof bowl, add the butter, unsweetened chocolate, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Place the bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water (bowl should not touch) and stir until everything is smooth and melted. Remove the bowl from the pan and let cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar until thickened and color lightens. Whisk in the melted chocolate then whisk in salt, vanilla, and flour.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the two ramekins. Place 1 teaspoon chocolate chips into the middle of each brownie; press the chips lightly into the batter. Bake 15-20 minutes or until the tops look dry and crisp. Let cool for 15 minutes then serve with vanilla ice cream.

      This looks yummy, Carla!


    2. Carla,
      I must get ramekins. I’m working at the thrift store today and I’ll cross my fingers that 6 ounce ramekins will be on the clearance shelf waiting for me.

      I like what you finally ended up writing–sometimes it’s good to just go with honesty and let your amazing photos and delicious recipe do the talking.


    3. I here by release you from any harm that I may incur eating both of these Sundaes. Don’t think won’t share I just see that I’ll have to make a triple batch so the whole family can have one and that will leave one extra for me!

    4. I’m flying solo this Valentine’s Day but I’m pretty sure I’m going to make both of these. And eat both, too. :)

    5. You had me with rich and decadent! Hhhhmmm…it only makes 2 huh? I better make them during the day…no one will be home to share with :-)

    6. So beautious! I am in loooove with these!

      Who needs men when you have chocolate?

    7. Here’s the thing, do I need to share? :-)

    8. Awesome! The right dessert for the two of us. An indulgence one night and no leftovers – yea!

    9. I would eat both for sure. This is like, brownie fabulous!

    10. lol, Carla, no words are necessary when you’ve got deep dish hot fudge brownies. I appreciated your words cause they make me laugh as you always do, but in this case, a picture is worth a thousand words and I could stare at your photos all day long. Of course, then I’d have to make these and I WOULD eat them all by myself since my crazy husband doesn’t like chocolate (scratch that – thank God he doesn’t like chocolate so I can have these all to myself).

      • Oh man I’m not sure what I’d do if I ever marry someone who doesn’t like chocolate (who am I kidding? I’d eat all the chocolate myself). Thanks Nancy!

    11. So beautiful and so delicious!

    12. Oh my… I think I would want to eat both. For breakfast. Why wait?! ;)

    13. Um, Yes. So much yes. I will take both for myself, thank you very much!!! Happy valentines, lady!

    14. I just bookmarked your deep dish chocolate chip cookies and now here we are again! I don’t know which one to make first :)

    15. As long as I don’t triple the recipe, this might serve as portion control ;) The vanilla ice cream puts these over the top.

    16. I know it’s that time of the year when you have to share with your loved one(s) but I’m pretty sure I’d have a hard time sharing these. They look and sound so good Carla!
      Thanks for sharing and thank you for the lovely comment left on my guest post on Jen’s blog

    17. I made this last night & served it w/vanilla gelato (it definitely needed the ice cream as it helped balance out the immense sweetness of the brownie). Due to it’s decadence I couldn’t finish my whole ramekin, but I will definitely make this again, (I might skip putting in the chocolate chips in the middle of the batter) & next time my husband and I can share a ramekin & save the other one for later! Thanks for this fancy restaurant-like dessert recipe. =)

    18. I don’t think you need to say much to convince me with these. But only two is a problem because then Brian won’t have one. :)

    19. I totally want to dig in! So delicious!

    20. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    21. Mmmmm! These look fabulous, Carla. I am not a big sweet eater but I do appreciate hot fudgy desserts when you add a dollop of cold vanilla ice cream.

    22. only for two..they don’t gonna be enough, got to make more, more of this delicious and marvelous brownie fudge sundaes, yummmmmy

    23. This could not look more incredible. And I love the serving size!!! Just perfection. I can’t wait to make this <3

    24. Some of my best recipes have come from you, this is no exception. Absolutely fantastic!
