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.

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

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 overhang 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!

    I don’t have a square pan so I used a round one. I have made these brownies 2 times but the baking time was way longer. The first time I left them about 1 hour more or less because at some point my oven turned off, but they ended up with a great texture! The thing is that the second time I might have over cooked them because i used the toothpick technique and they baked for wayyy too long. :( I read a few comments in other blogs and they said that with brownies is not that ok to use the toothpick cause the brownies will end up overcooked.

    Anyways, thank you for the recipe! The first brownies that I’ve baked! And they didn’t last 1 day, my family loved them (Well, at least the first round)! :3

    Excellent recipe! Fudgy & Chewy like promised :) I used half semi sweet and half dark chocolate chips for both the melted chocolate that makes the batter and for the 1 cup of chocolate chips added at the end… And also made a ganache out of semi-sweet chocolate chips and low fat cream and spread a thin layer on top. Very intense chocolate flavor! Thanks for the recipe! I will try your frosting next time :)

    Hi sally! So I’ve made these a couple of times now and I’m pretty sure I’m doing something wrong. While they are delicious, the crust always has sugar crystals in it and when i take a bite I can feel them crunching under my teeth.
    When I whisk the sugar with the melted butter and Chocolate, the sugar is still visible and the mixture isn’t smooth. I thought about mixing it more but wouldn’t that make the Brownies cakey? How long did you have to mix until the mixture smoothed out?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on November 16th, 2014 at 11:06 am

      The sugar/chocolate/butter mixture will be a little gritty. And it’s OK to whisk these three ingredients together really well. It’s once you add the flour that you should avoid overmixing. The sugar should cook down while the brownies bake. Solutions would be to (1) whisk the butter/chocolate/sugar mixture more and/or (2) perhaps reduce the sugar. And to keep the brownies sweet enough, maybe use milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet? hope this helps.

    These turned out so great. High-ish altitude of about 6000 ft. No adjustments made… used 11×7 pan lined with foil, 36 minutes. I could have gone 37, but not 35, if you know what I mean. I’ve been making the same brownies since 2007… not sure what I am going to do now! Just keep lots of semisweet chocolate on hand… lol. :D

    Sally – thank you so much for this recipe it is really great! Before I tried your version, I’ve always made the “Baked Brownie” recipe. However, it requires a lot more time, energy and so many bowls that I need to wash! I was skeptical about how easy this one was – but the brownies turned out just as fabulous – plus I only used 1 dish! Mixed everything in the pot I melted the chocolate/butter in and just put it on the scale and measured that way, how wonderful!! I am so grateful for your blog and will be visiting frequently with the holidays coming up :-)

    I tried making half the recipe, so I used 2 eggs instead of 1 1/2. and I only had unsweetened chocolate on hand, so I added honey(4 tbsp) and maple syrup (1/4 cup) to the chocolate/butter melt, as well as some maple extract (1/4 tsp). they turned out really tasty and decadent. I’d recommend honey/maple as possible new brownie recipe.

    After sitting in the fridge overnight, they are not gooey and taste great!

    Thank goodness I came across your site. I am very new to the world of baking. So far my experience was restricted to decent banana walnut breads and average muffins. A few cake making attempts ended up in disasters and I decided art of baking is not for me.
    Though I enjoy brownies very much, never thought I could ever make remotely decent brownie at home. Your recipe encouraged me to go ahead and give it a try. The way you explain technicalities and reassure readers about the outcome is very encouraging. Surely you do a lot of work to make life easy for us the new bakers.
    I followed your recipe Exactly and the outcome was wonderful. The brownies were full of deep flavor and as you promised melted in the mouth. No one could stop at one piece. Can’t wait to make it again for my preschooler’s upcoming holiday concert.
    A BIG thanks to you for developing and sharing this yummy and easy brownie recipe. I feel lot more confident now and will surely try the other recipes posted on your site.

    Sorry, but these got a thumbs down from my family. I followed the recipe to a ‘t’, but the chocolate chips did not fully melt. We normally love everything else that you make but for us, these were not great…..

    I followed your recipe to bake brownies for my friends and they absolutely loved it! I was just wondering if its ok that there’s no baking powder in the recipe? I added some in mine which I’m guessing is what gave the crust a wee bit of a rise and made it a little flaky and crispy in contrast to the fudginess of the cake.
    But I was just wondering if it makes any difference without the baking powder?

      Brownies typically do not include leavening so that they can keep a fudgy texture. So they taste and look different without the baking powder that you used, yes.

        I just added a 1/4tsp so I guess that’s why the brownie still turned out pretty fudgy. I was afraid that it would be too dense if I didn’t add the baking powder. Next time I’ll try it without.
        Thank you for your recipe! My friends absolutely loved the brownies!
