Blueberry Fudge BrowniesHave you seen BROOKSIDE chocolate products in your grocery store? Have you TRIED them?  More than likely, if you have, you went back to get more.  If you haven’t, you need to get your hands on them.  I had the opportunity to try their three REAL fruit juice flavors, Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate, and Dark Chocolate Goji with Raspberry in a tasting kit they sent me a few weeks ago.

Since I opened the package during our move into our new house, I shared them with some friends who helped us.  Rave reviews came from all, but I made sure to keep one package unopened so I could try to create a recipe with them.  The flavor I had left to work with was the Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry.  And, as hard as it was to not just open the package and eat them straight up, I decided to toss them into boxed brownie batter, along with a swirl of blueberry syrup.  Holy cow!  The combination was incredible.

If you can’t find Brookside chocolate in your local grocery store (check Walmart, Sam’s Club, etc.) then go ahead and make these brownies without the dark chocolate bites (because they are still pretty decadent with just the blueberry swirl), and then contact Brookside to help get their products into your store! :)

Blueberry Fudge Brownies

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 16 servings

Serving Size: 1 brownie

Blueberry Fudge Brownies

Chocolate fudge brownies with blueberry swirl in the middle and surprise bites of dark chocolate acai.

  • 1 (18.3 oz) family size box brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup blueberry ice cream topping or syrup (homemade or store-bought)
  • 20-25 pieces BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry, optional

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8x8-inch square baking pan.

Combine the brownie mix, water, oil and eggs in a mixing bowl. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Dollop the blueberry syrup evenly over the batter in the pan, then use a knife to swirl. Pour the rest of the batter on top and use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to spread evenly.

Sprinkle the chocolate pieces evenly over top the batter. They will more than likely sink during baking. If you wish, you can wait to do this until after taking the baked brownies out of the oven to keep them on top of the brownies. Bake for 52 to 55 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
