The most perfect fudge brownies from scratch I’ve ever had. Thick, gooey, and chocolatey, these brownies have it all!


1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
8-10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl using a hand mixer or in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until it’s nice and light.

2) Mix in eggs one at a time into the creamed butter and sugar. Then add vanilla and continue to mix.

3) Add in cocoa powder and a pinch of salt. Then add flour and mix until just combined. Try not to overmix the batter at this point.

4) Scoop batter into a 9×13 baking dish and spread out evenly with a flat spatula. Sprinkle brownies very liberally with chocolate chips.

5) Bake brownies at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until the center is not quite set, but almost. Don’t over-bake them!

6) Let brownies cool for 15 minutes before slicing into them.

Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
