Ultimate Chocolate Brownies

Let me first confess, I have a major obsession with chocolate, hehe!! If I was stranded on an island and allowed one thing only, I may just choose chocolate……okay, maybe not, but I would try sneaking it in, haha! Anyways, one of my favorite chocolate treats to enjoy is a brownie. Fudge like, full of chocolate, moist, and served with a scoop of ice-cream, doesn’t get much better than that, right? Over the years, I have tried making several types of “homemade” brownie recipes and none compare to a good ol’ boxed mix. I decided this week to try yet again, at making something similar to a boxed mix. After playing around with some ingredients, combinations, and amounts, I think I have now come as close as I can get to a boxed mix with this recipe. No, you don’t get to just dump the mix together in under 5 minutes, BUT, this is still a simple recipe and the end result is fabulous! I will most definitely be making these brownies again, and again, and again!!



  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt



  1. In a microwavable safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, butter, and unsweetened chocolate.
  2. Microwave in 30 second increments until mixture is smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar and eggs. Beat with an electric mixture until light and thick.
  4. Add in the vanilla extract and melted chocolate mixture.
  5. Carefully fold in the flour and salt until all is combined.
  6. Pour mixture into a greased 8×8 baking pan.
  7. Place pan in a preheated oven, 350, and bake for 40-45 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes prior to serving!
