Top Review by Jessica T

Made these as written. Microwaved for 5 minutes in a 1300 watt microwave, and they came out perfectly. Makes about 5/8"-thick brownies in an 8x8 in. pan. More fudge than cake, but an excellent last-minute snack for brownie cravings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In an 8-inch square glass baking dish, place the butter and chocolate and microwave on high until melted, about 2 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the sugar and stir well to combine.
  3. Sift the flour and salt into the chocolate mixture and add the eggs, whisking until smooth, scraping around the sides to incorporate all the ingredients.
  4. Add the vanilla and whisk to combine.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips and microwave on high until set and a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 4 1/2 to 5 minutes.
  6. NOTE: Cooking times may vary, depending upon the strength of the microwave.
