Feature: Apple Fudge Brownies: Easy Way to Use Apples

Apple Fudge Brownies are an easy way to use apples, especially when you have a couple of slightly shriveled apples sitting in the fruit bowl that no one wants to eat. They’re too old or even mealy.

That attitude can change in a hurry. I’ve seen it in my own house. Grate a couple of apples, throw them into the brownie batter and all of a sudden, your family members are nicey-nicey.

Of course you can use crisp, fresh apples in this recipe. And I like to chop dried apples and sprinkle them on the top of the brownies, too.

Either way, this recipe is a quick fix.  

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 28-32 minutes Makes about 35 brownies
