Wine Country Recipes – Dessert, Oregon Fudge Bars

Filberts, also known as hazelnuts are what make these brownies so uniquely Oregonian. They’re perfect for an after school treat or with fresh raspberries for a decadent evening dessert.

Oregon Fudge Bars from Euphoria Chocolate

1 cup Dark Chocolate Buttons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup chopped filberts (hazelnuts)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup white sugar

In a heavy saucepan or microwave oven, melt chocolate with shortening. Remove from heat. With wire whip, blend in sugars. Beat eggs lightly with vanilla and salt and stir into chocolate mixture. Mix flour with baking powder. Add, all at once, beating until smooth. Spread into greased 9-inch square pan. Sprinkle filberts over top and pat down with a spatula. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Cool before cutting into bars. Makes 36 1 1/2" square bars.
