Rich Double Chocolate Brownies

I've been hunting for a GREAT homemade brownie recipe forever. I wanted dense, fudgy brownies that used ingredients I always have around the house. Finally, I broke down and created one. I combined a couple of the recipes that were best, and added my own creative tweaks, and the results were absolutely delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X9 inch cake pan. Other sized cake pan can be substituted, but a larger pan will result in thinner brownies, so reduce the heat to 325.
  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in sugars, cocoa powder, eggs and vanilla. Once fully incorporated, add salt, flour and baking powder. Mix. Last, add chocolate chips and nuts (if desired).
  3. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into center comes out almost clean. Top should be crusty, and sides should be separated from the pan.

Almost candy. I wanted to take a picture but I couldn't wait to devour them. I melted the butter in a saucepan and added all the ingredients directly to it, which makes for super easy clean up. However, it was a little too warm and when I added the chocolate chunks at the end, they mostly melted. Bravo!

Excellent! These are best if left to cool completely before eating.
