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 35 brownies
1 18-ounce brownie mix
½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
2 apples, finely grated (about ¾ cup), undrained
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
½ cup dried apples, finely chopped (optional)
Special Baking Tips for Apple Fudge Brownies
Melted butter gives the brownies a richer flavor, but you can substitute vegetable oil.
You can chop apples finely in a food processor rather than using a grater, but do not drain them. The apple juice helps moisten the brownies.
The walnuts and dried apples are optional but make the brownie surface look better – optional if you’re simply feeding hungry troops at home.
