This Baked Fudge recipe is quick, easy and loaded with chocolatey goodness. Your family is going to love this easy dessert recipe.
Baked fudge is such a great recipe to make for family gatherings and potlucks. Bake them in tiny mason jars so everyone gets their own jar of happiness!
Some recipes need to be shared. They need to be savoured, and enjoyed by everyone.
Then there are recipes, like this baked fudge, where you hide in the closet with the entire batch so you don't have to share.
Not that anyone here did that.
I would never.
Okay, so I totally did it.
Honestly, I don't even care. It was totally worth it.
I cannot even begin to describe this one. It's so decadent and over the top good. You have to try it for yourself. Then hide in the closet so you don't have to share. No evidence...no guilt!
- Eggs - Use large eggs for this recipe.
- Sugar - For this baked fudge, use granulated sugar and brown sugar.
- Cocoa Powder - Use a good quality one for a richer, deeper flavour. I used heaping spoonfuls for this one.
- Flour - The best flour for this recipe is all purpose flour.
- Butter - You can use either salted or unsalted butter. For this particular recipe, it won't make much of a difference.
- Vanilla Extract - Use store bought or make your own homemade vanilla extract.
- Chocolate Extract - This is not a deal breaker if you don't have it. You can omit it or just add more vanilla extract.
- First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Then, beat the eggs until they are light in colour.
- Next, add both sugars and beat until combined.
- Add the cocoa powder, flour, butter and extracts. Mix those until combined.
- Then, pour batter into ramekins or small jars. Pop them into a rimmed pan then add some water inside the pan but NOT the ramekins. Read full recipe at the bottom of the post in the recipe card to make sure you fully understand the technique!
- Next, place the pan in the oven and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
- Remove from the oven carefully.
- Lastly, serve warm or cooled.

- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder heaping
- 2 tbsp flour
- ½ cup butter melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp chocolate extract
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Beat the eggs in a stand mixer, or use a hand mixer, until light in colour.
- Now add the white granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat until combined.
- Add the cocoa, flour, butter and extracts. Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
- Pour the batter into ramekins or small mason jars (good quality so they don't break in the oven) and set those inside a rimmed baking dish. I used a cake pan. Then pour water inside the baking dish (but NOT in the ramekins or mason jars) until it comes up about halfway.
- Pop in the oven for about 40 to 50 minutes, they should be a crust on the top that is crisp but the inside should be firm but still just a tad gooey. It reminds me of a firm creme brulee on the inside.
- You can serve these hot, and they will taste almost like a gooey brownie. Or you can pop them in the fridge to make them firmer and set up. Then they become almost like a soft fudgy pudding.
- I like mine hot out of the oven. I just use a dish towel wrapped around the jar and have at it.
- Serve with a big old chocolatey smile!
Toodles and smoochies! xx

I was sick yesterday~So catching up today(kinda) keeping my fingers crossed 😉
I loved your post about your Mother and saved her recipes-because I bet they are D-Lish.
Hard loosing Mom's~but I know you have beautiful memories~and great pictures.
I just found you through Chocolate, Chocolate and More. I am looking forward to reading your blog as I am also a lover of baking/cooking/grilling foods. I have all of Pioneer Woman's cookbooks, I have been a follower of hers for many years and her recipes are wonderful. This Baked Fudge recipe included! Celebrations must include Seafoods!!! Happy 3 year blogiversary!
3 years. Time flies. Happy Happy!! When I was young my moms always made my favorite cake.
Spice cake with Penucchi frosting. Have not made it for a long time cuz I am too ill. But thinking
of Spice cake etc. does keep me going. Happy Blogiversary! Your cravings suit mine quite well.
These look AMAZING! I'm going to make them this week, as I was looking for the perfect chocolate cake for a friend on Friday... and this is more than perfect, lol.
Hello. These look amazing! I had a question. I usually make pumpkin bread in a jar to give as gifts during the Christmas season. I was wondering if you could do the same thing with these? With pumpkin bread i n a jar you add the jar lids as soon as they come out of the oven, and they seal as the bread cools. Then they can keep for up to a year. Have you tried doing that with these? If not, do you think that they would be good if served that way, cooled in a sealed jar? I just think if it works out, what a darling gift, a small jar of chocolate Heaven!
That sounds really good.
I've never tried it. I don't think it would work the same way with these baked fudge. But I'm sure you could seal them after they cooled and give them as gifts.
YUUUUUUMMM-OOOOOOO!!!! Making these ASAP. AND... What is the cute utensil you stuck in your jar??? I think I gotta have some of those for the FULL EFFECT!!!!
Thanks Marianne. They are really good.
The spoons are from a store called Gracious Home. I'm not sure if they still carry them or not.
I am definitely going to try these this weekend. And - believe it or not - I am JUST ABOUT to watch last night's episode of The Walking Dead. Who's my favourite? I'm afraid you and I are going to have to fight for him 😉
Love your blog. Looove this recipe. Absolutely 100% in agreement with you over DD!
This was really good. My kids loved it.
I'm so happy you liked it.
