Ultimate chocolate brownies

Makes 9 to 12 brownies


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with butter and lightly dust with flour. Discard excess flour and set pan aside.
  2. In a medium heatproof bowl over gently boiling water, melt the unsweetened dark chocolate and butter together. Stir to combine until both are completely melted and remove from heat.
  3. Whisk in the sugar and then the eggs, 1 at a time. Next, whisk in the vanilla and salt.
  4. Stir in the flour with a spoon until just combined.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and stir again until combined.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes and let cool before serving.
