  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chopped and divided
  • 1 and 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or a line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt half of the chopped chocolate.  Save the other half of the chocolate for later.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, mix together the melted butter with the sugar on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the melted chocolate and mix well. 
  • Turn the mixer off and fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt by hand until a few dry streaks remain. Then fold in the remaining chopped chocolate.
  • Transfer the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center will yield some batter. The brownies should not jiggle when you shake the pan.
  • Allow the brownies to cool before slicing and serving. You can store them in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm up if desired.


Leftover brownies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for several days.
