Chewy Fudgy Homemade Brownies.

Thick, fudgy, chewy homemade brownies made completely from scratch. You will never make a box mix again!

Greetings from the plane. Today are headed to sunny Mexico for 5 days for my best friend’s wedding. Riviera Maya – so excited to sit back with a margarita in hand and let others do the baking and cooking for me!

Enough about me. Moving on to why you’re really here… homemade chocolate brownies. Is there truly anything better in this world? Maybe if you add peanut butter frosting and chocolate covered pretzels and serve with chocolate milk. Oh heavens yes.

But today, let’s discuss the real deal. A brownie in its purest form. My favorite chewy fudgy homemade brownie recipe. No mixer, no strange ingredients, just pure brownie love.

Thick, fudgy, chewy homemade brownies made completely from scratch. You will never make a box mix again!

Everyone has a favorite brownie recipe. There are so many homemade favorites! But today I’ll show you how to make chewy, fudgy homemade brownies. Because in my dessert loving world, a brownie should be two things: chewy and fudgy.

Chewy brownies have a dense structure, but still have a little crumb. Fudgy brownies are dense, with a moist, intensely chocolatey interior – somewhere between a chocolate truffle and piece of fudge. I like my brownies so rich and dense that it tastes like frosting you can eat in bar form. Now how delicious does that sound?

If you’re looking for a healthy chocolate brownie recipe, look elsewhere because my homemade brownies are an indulgent dream come true.

Before making a batch of homemade brownies, it’s helpful to know the importance of the ingredients you’re using. I wasn’t able to develop this brownie recipe without a little practice, trial and error (delicious trial and error, might I add), and learning.

Brownie Science, Explained. (nerd alert!) :)

Let’s break down my indulgently rich brownie recipe real quick. A brownie’s main ingredients are chocolate, flour, sugar, and eggs. Varying amounts of these ingredients will affect the texture of the finished product.

The importance of chocolate. Brownies may be made with cocoa powder or solid chocolate. If using all cocoa powder, you typically will need more fat in the batter because cocoa powder does not contain the cocoa butter that solid chocolate does. Today, my brownie recipe uses mostly solid chocolate with a bit of cocoa powder. Double the chocolate goodness! I prefer these brownies with semi-sweet chocolate, though milk chocolate would be just fine for a sweeter tasting brownie. I don’t suggest using unsweetened or bittersweet chocolate unless you love deep, dark chocolate. My taste testers found them to be too bitter using either of those chocolate options.

You’re going to melt a precise 8 ounces of chocolate with the butter – this will help prevent the chocolate from seizing. You may either do this on the stove or in the microwave. I can’t stress the importance of accurately measuring the 8 ounces. Here is the food scale I own and highly suggest stocking your kitchen with one. The most important tool I own!

Sorry it has chocolate crumbs all over it…

OXO Food Scale

Now, the flour. Like I mentioned above, I prefer my brownies chewy and fudgy! The fudginess in my brownie recipe relates to the small amount of flour. More flour = a more cake-like brownie. Cakey brownies are just not my thing; I’d rather have giant piece of chocolate cake!

Let’s talk sugar. My brownie recipe uses 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, which sweetens up the semi-sweet chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder used. I also add 1/4 cup of brown sugar, which enhances the moist, fudgy texture. The sugars are whisked with the melted butter/chocolate mixture until completely smooth and uniform in texture.

There is very little wiggle room with the sugar. As long as you use 1 total cup of real sugar (no sugar substitutes here, please) – then your brownies will turn out wonderfully. 1 full cup of granulated sugar can be used without the addition of brown sugar. That version is just as fantastic – and easier since you only need 1 type of sugar! In fact, that’s how I usually make my brownies. But the little addition of brown sugar is welcomed these days.

Eggs do about 1 million functions in baking. From binding, to adding richness, to tenderizing, to providing structure and lift. My homemade brownie recipes uses 3 eggs, which give the brownies a tight crumb and melt-in-your-mouth tender, fudgy texture.

Because I’m completely out of my chocolate-obsessed mind, I like to add chocolate chips or chunks to the brownie batter. There is always room for more chocolate, right? The chocolate pieces inside give the brownies a little texture and will melt all over your fingers when they’re warm. Just wait until you try these homemade brownies with a little melty vanilla ice cream on the side. Perfection.

Oh, and one final touch? You can even add milk chocolate frosting because… why not?

Chewy Fudgy Homemade Brownies

Chewy fudgy homemade brownies made completely from scratch. Try them with chocolate frosting and sprinkles on top! You will never make a box mix again, trust me.

Yield: 16-20 brownies

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes plus cooling

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (115g) salted butter*
  • 8 ounces (228g) coarsely chopped quality semi-sweet chocolate*
  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons (80g) all-purpose flour (measure this accurately)
  • 2 Tablespoons (11g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Milk Chocolate Frosting (optional)

  • 1 and 3/4 cups (210g) confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup (22g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • salt, to taste

Directions:

Melt the butter and chopped chocolate in a medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Or melt in a medium microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring after each, in the microwave. Remove from the heat, pour into a large mixing bowl, and allow to slightly cool for 10 minutes.

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line the bottom and sides of a 9x9 inch square baking pan* with aluminum foil, leaving an overhand on all sides. Set aside.

Whisk the granulated and brown sugars into the cooled chocolate/butter mixture. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla. Gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Once combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 35-36 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out with only a few moist crumbs when the brownies are done. All ovens are different, so keep an eye on them after 30 minutes and use the toothpick test to see when yours are finished.

Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack. Once cooled, lift the foil out of the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into squares. For neat squares, I use a very sharp knife and wipe it clean with a paper towel after each cut.

For the optional frosting: sift together the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder to assure there are no lumps. Set aside. With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy - about 2 minutes. Gradually add the sifted sugar/cocoa powder alternately with the heavy cream and vanilla. Beat on low speed after each addition. Once all added, beat on high speed until creamy and combined for at least 2 minutes. Add a pinch of salt if frosting is too sweet. Frost the brownies before or after cutting into squares, whichever you prefer.

The brownies will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week. Unfrosted brownies freeze well, up to 2 months.

*I love to use salted butter here. If you choose to use unsalted, don't increase the salt in the recipe. I find that there is no noticeable taste difference between using salted and unsalted butter in this particular recipe.

*I typically use Baker's, Ghirardelli, or Trader Joes chocolate. Try using bittersweet chocolate for a deeper, darker flavor. 

*You may use an 11x7 inch baking pan instead - the bake time is about 35-40 minutes.

You may recognize this brownie recipe. I published a very similar one in my cookbook. I call them Death by Chocolate Brownies because they are just that – so intense! The only difference is that I don’t use cocoa powder or brown sugar. They’re still out of this world!

    Hello Sally! I was just wondering if it isn’t better to use melted dark (or semi-sweet/milk) chocolate in the frosting instead of cocoa (or as an addition to cocoa)? I don’t have much experience in frostings but have you tried that?

Thanks for creating such an indulgent and tasty homemade brownie. I may never go back to boxed mixes again!! P.s. I didn’t even put the frosting on because they were so good all by themselves.

    I guess the foil lining increases baking time? These bad boys have been in the oven almost an hour and are not completely solid yet. Albeit their not burning and I used Heath bar pieces instead of chocolate chips. I guess we’ll see after this next 5 minutes round if they turn out! Though I feel like if they don’t thicken soon I’m just going to call it baked fudge :D

    I made these brownies last night and they are probably the most delicious baked good I’ve ever eaten. Ever. I made a few mistakes, but I think they were actually for the best! I didn’t have granulated sugar and used all brown sugar, and when my boyfriend was reading me the recipe he said 1/4 cup cocoa powder (which is for the icing) so I accidentally doubled the cocoa powder- OOPS! Turned out absolutely delicious though, so I might make those ‘mistakes’ again next time I bake them! I also used some dark chocolate sea salt caramels instead of chocolate chips (and skipped the frosting)… I think I have to go eat another, they are soo good. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi, Sally!!
    I plan on making these in the morning and I’m wondering – are choc chips and chopped up chocolate bar interchangeable? I have a bazillion bags of Trader Joe’s choc chips (absolutely the best ever…and I don’t have one near me so I have to stock up when I visit my sister!) and only a bar of dark chocolate. Don’t think I’ve ever tried subbing the chips. Same thing??

    Thanks! Your recipes rock!

      Hi Alyssa, chocolate chips and pure chocolate are not interchangeable in this instance. Chocolate chips contain stabilizers, which make them incredibly difficult to melt into a smooth, rich texture like pure chocolate. Pure chocolate also tastes 99% better and therefore, your brownies will taste 99% better. I usually use pure chocolate chopped up to replace chocolate chips, but not the other way around. Hope this helps.

    Hey Sally! I am planning on making this recipe but I just have one question. Here in Australia we don’t really have semi-sweet chocolate, so I was wondering whether to use Milk or Dark chocolate?
    Thanks :)

      Either is fine, Lily – it depends which kind you like better. I would go for the dark chocolate, but that’s just me.

    How would I alter the recipe for them to still be thick in a 13×9 pan

    can substitute peanuts/almonds instead of choco chips? do I need to add more cocoa powder when substituting it?

      That would be fine. No need to use more cocoa powder.

    Here’s a quick question: could you use pastry flour instead of all-purpose? I know the pastry flour has less gluten. I’ve made another kind of brownie and because they weren’t very good, they weren’t all consumed within a day and became hard.

      Gabby, pastry flour should be fine in these brownies.

    Hi. Thanks for the recipe. Have tried it. Very delicious. Want to bake another one next time :). But it is too sweet for me. I used semi sweet chocolate like in the recipe. Maybe next time will reduce the amount of sugar used. If I used milk chocolate, does it will make the brownies more sweet?

    Hello from Thailand ! I have tried this recipe and I absolutely love them. I did not deviate or adjust anything from your recipe and they came out wonderful. So rich and instense in flavor. Very fudgy. I baked them twice in one night. My house smelled like Charlie’s Chocolate Factory in the morning. Thank you !!!
