If there’s one thing you need to be baking, it’s these easy double chocolate fudge brownies. Oh my goodness I can’t say enough good things about them – beyond simple to make (think mix, pour, bake, done), extra rich and chocolatey, with a fudge-like dense texture that is too good to resist. Plus, there’s chocolate chips folded into the batter which gives the brownies little pockets of melted, gooey chocolate. They are heavenly.
easy double chocolate fudge brownies – the details
When it comes to brownies, I don’t really like experimenting too much. I like classic, traditional brownies. And this is the ultimate recipe to have in your back pocket when you want a no-fuss, absolutely decadent, and in my eyes “perfect,” brownie.
I’m calling these easy double chocolate fudge brownies for good reason. The process to make them is incredibly simple. I use both cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate chips for an intense chocolate flavor. The recipe is also fairly light on the flour, so the finished product comes out somewhat of what you would get with a flourless chocolate cake. Super rich, soft, and extra fudgy.
These brownies have this slight crinkly top and then the rest just melts in your mouth. When they come out of the oven, they’ll be a bit difficult to work with since they are so fudgy. You’ll want to let them cool down slightly before cutting.
You could cool them completely, but I love them a tad warm so that the chocolate chips are extra melty and delicious. I also like to top these with a pinch of flaky sea salt, which is totally optional, but the sweet + salty combo is delicious.
There’s nothing not to LOVE about these double chocolate fudge brownies. I’d say they are the perfect baking project for any night of the week. Kids will love them, adults will devour them, too…you just can’t go wrong.
I’m thinking the next Friday night that you’re staying in, make a fun dinner (maybe this pasta dish) and then whip up these brownies. Your kitchen will smell amazing and you’ll have such a treat for the end of a long week.
I hope you love them and that this recipe becomes a new go-to that you make over and over again.Print
Easy Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies
classic, easy double chocolate fudge brownies that you’ll hopefully make over and over again
yield: 18 brownies
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 sticks butter, melted
- 2 tbsp safflower oil (or any neutral oil)
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- flaky sea salt (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa (or cacao) powder, and salt. Set aside. In a separate, large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the sugar and whisk aggressively until well incorporated. The mixture should be thick and pale yellow.
- Mix in the melted butter, oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the dry ingredients into the mixture, whisking until incorporated. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.
- Pour the brownie batter into a greased 9×13” baking dish, using a rubber spatula to scrape every last bit of batter from the bowl. Spread the batter into an even layer. Bake the brownies for 28-30 minutes, or until *just* cooked through.
- Let the brownies cool slightly in the pan, about 15 minutes. Transfer them to a cutting board by lifting the parchment paper. Cut the brownies into squares. Sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt and eat them warm.
