Easy. Double. Chocolate. Fudge. Brownies.
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 used both cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate 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 are actually kind of hard to keep together, which is what I love about them. They have this slight crinkly top and then the rest just melts in your mouth.
I am truly obsessed. I’ve made them three times already.
I hope you love these fudge brownies, and that this recipe becomes your go-to that you make over and over again.
Easy Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies
a classic, easy double chocolate fudge brownies that you’ll want to have in your back pocket
yield: 12 brownies
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 4 eggs
- 2 ¼ 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 30 minutes.
- Sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt when they come out of the oven. Let cool and cut the brownies into squares. Or, eat them warm out of the oven!
