Introduction: Delicious Fudgey Brownies

These brownies are quickly replacing any box brownies; they are so moist and they fulfill every chocolate craving. They might use one extra pan to clean, but it's definitely worth it (especially if the pan is nonstick because then it's a breeze to clean anyway). If you really want to up the brownie, stick a scoop of ice cream on top for an even richer dessert.

Step 1: Ingriedents

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (that's 2 sticks)
  • 2 ¼ cups of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups AP flour
  • Chocolate chips

Step 2: The Totally-Worth-It-Extra-Step

Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a 9” x 13” pan

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. When it's melted, add the sugar and stir to combine. Let it cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring, then poor the mixture in a bowl. It should be a shiny and thick mixture.

Step 3: Time for All the Mixing

Add the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and vanilla and mix until it's all nice and combined.

Add the flour and mix until combined. This part is tricky if you are mixing by hand like me—I kneaded the flour in with my spatula as to not have a flour bomb explode all over my counter. The batter gets very thick so it will really help burn some calories so you can eat these brownies.

Add as many chocolate chips as you like and stir them in. I just grabbed quite a few handfuls and threw them in the batter and left some to sprinkle over top. You can also add anything else into these brownies that you'd like; the first time I made them I added walnuts and I highly recommend that. The batter is thick enough that it would be really hard for the extra treats to sink to the bottom.

Step 4: The End Is Near

Pour into greased pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out semi-clean (there are melted chocolate chips floating around in there). The edges should be set and the center should look baked but very moist.

Let them cool and then dig in! They are so delicious!

This might be silly question to ask, so please forgive me but considering the pan and ingredients you used, how many people does it serve? I know you have to take in account everyones different and some might want smaller/bigger portions but lets say i wanted to make this for someones birthday, what would be best for a single serving

These are REALLY good. I had to make something for my dad's work party, so I made these. Although maybe not the best thing to make every 2 days (they can be quite fattening!) everybody enjoyed these. Thank you for the recipe, ImJevin.

I only had bakers chocolate so I melted that with the butter instead of using cocoa powder and my batter looks a little bit more runny than yours. They are in the oven right now so I can't wait to see how they are because the batter was THEE BEST brownie batter I have ever had! It was hard to stop spooning at it.
Can't wait till I taste the full effect... 15 more minutes...

What kind of chocolate chips? I assume standard semi-sweet? Bitter-Sweet?

I think all chips are sweetened.

I used semi-sweet chocolate chips but I think any type of chips would work. I think my next batch I'm going to combine semi-sweet and peanut butter chips. :)

These are absolutely delicious. I got to eat them because she is my sister but everyone should make and eat these!!! I would also say that if you warm them up in the microwave and put ice cream on top it would be delicious, or it at least looked like it because she stole the last one and did that and didn't let me have any :'(

It's not like I will never make these again, silly.
