  • ½ cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 2 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate bars (I used Ghiradelli)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Melt the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally. Once melted and smooth (5 mins), pour mixture into large mixing bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.

  2. In the meantime, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and place your oven rack in lower third of your oven, and line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper.

  3. Once chocolate/butter mixture is cooled for 10 minutes, whisk in granulated and brown sugar. Next, add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla, then slowly whisk in the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Once combined, gently fold in chocolate chips.

  4. Pour mixture into baking pan. Bake for 34-36 minutes, until top is crackly and toothpick inserted in center has a few moist crumbs.

  5. Cool baking dish on wire rack until fully cooled (about 1 hour). Pull brownies out with parchment paper handles and cut brownies to the size you'd like. Serve to a very happy crowd. They're going to love you!
