Place of three triple chocolate brownies.

Special occasions call for special desserts and this fudgy triple chocolate brownies recipe definitely fits into that category. I call these chocolate fantasy bars because they are as chocolatey as you can get. You’ve got a super moist chocolate cake mix, instant chocolate pudding mix (made with chocolate milk because why not?), and a deliciously rich chocolate ganache on top, made with whipped cream and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The decadence of the first bite will have you deem it worthy of a restaurant’s signature dessert. Chocolate lovers will straight up think they have gone to heaven after one bite of these oh-so-decadent triple chocolate fudge brownies. The chocolate flavor is truly out of this world.

Fortunately, I’ve included quite a few shortcuts so this is a simple and easy brownie recipe, but you wouldn’t believe it when you see the end result. You just have to be a little patient and let these homemade brownies cool for a few hours before you indulge. Trust me, they’re worth the wait.

I’m so excited to share this fudgy brownie recipe with you today. Let’s get baking!

Ingredients for triple chocolate brownies.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Chocolate cake mix
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Chocolate milk
  • Instant chocolate pudding mix
  • Whipping cream
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to Make Triple Chocolate Brownies

Make the cake batter.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, and melted butter. Stir by hand until well combined and spread the brownie batter into a greased 9×13 baking dish.

Bake this at 375 for about 15 to 20 minutes or until set.

Allow the brownie layer to cool completely.

Mix milk and pudding and spread this over the cake layer.

Place the pudding mix and chocolate milk in a separate mixing bowl and beat with a wire whisk until thickened. Spread the chocolate mixture over the cooled brownie layer.

It’s like chocolate mousse, so good!

Make chocolate ganache by microwaving whipped cream and chocolate chips.

Make your magical ganache layer by placing the milk chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth and well combined. It will look like a rich chocolate sauce.

Spread this on top of the pudding layer. It will be easier to spread than you think!

Cover and refrigerate the chocolate fudgy brownies until chilled through (about two hours).

Then, cut them into bars and enjoy. 

You are simply not going to believe how good these are!


  • Store these fudgy brownies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  • You can also freeze the homemade brownies for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

Recipe Notes

  • If you want to be extra indulgent, serve your triple chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a delicious dessert. You may also like to garnish it with fresh berries.
  • If you like, you can add extra ingredients to the brownie batter, like chopped walnuts or pecans, extra milk chocolate chips or caramel bits, or chopped chocolate chunks. Maybe white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips/chunks for something different? Because there’s no such thing as too much chocolate flavor.
  • For perfect brownie slices, use a clean sharp knife. Run it under hot water before cutting and wipe it dry and your slices should be perfectly neat and smooth.

  1. WOW, this looks so delicious, love the idea of doing special things for celebrations instead of gifts, your Mom is so pretty, please give her a “Happy Birthday wish”

  2. Wow, these look amazing! Add me to the chorus, haha! I’m saving this to try soon. Thanks Christy! And your mother seems to be such a sweetheart. I always like it when she makes an appearance on your blog. 🙂 My own mother passed at age 62 in 2000, God rest her soul.

    1. I can’t wait for you to try them Aileen!! We all thinks she is, but that comes with a little bit of prejudice Imam sure. So sorry to hear of your mother passing at such an early age, I can’t imagine the heart ache you have of missing her. Hugs and Blessings to you Aileen, I hope you have a good day today!

  3. These look wonderful! My husband is a chocolate freak, so I can’t wait for an excuse to make them. I had to laugh at your post. My daughter lives in Nashville, and trust me JoAnn’s, Walmart and Sam’s would NOT be where I would choose to shop there! They have such great shopping and restaurants. Next time you take your mom there, Green Hills has a new Restoration Hardware store with a fabulous restaurant under a glass roof. You will sit on RH seating at RH tables, and the food is wonderful.

    1. LOL! I totally agree! But we are boring and the funny thing is, we have all of those stores here so it was really about just hanging out together – plus we had a goal of not spending any significant money, lol. I had no idea RH had a restaurant though! My husband and I may have to check that out. We sometimes drive to Nash for supper.
