Fudgy Chocolate Brownies
These fudgy chocolate brownies are bursting with chocolate chunks! So, if you love chocolate, this will be your new favorite brownie recipe. Seriously. The recipe has you add almost a cup of semisweet chocolate chunks. And all this added chocolate makes them absolutely heavenly! In between sweet, gooey bites of brownie, there are bright bursts of straight chocolate. And these melt-in-your-mouth pieces of chocolate are interspersed throughout the brownies.
And, since I was careful not to overcook them, they were insanely, wonderfully fudgy. Plus, I used Dark Chocolate cocoa powder in the batter, so they almost look black on the inside. And are super rich and mouthwatering as a direct result.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re just all around amazing? It’s true. So if you consider yourself a chocolate lover, you HAVE to make this brownie recipe.
To help walk you through the process, I took some in-progress pictures of my batter. This should help to show you what your batter should look like during each of the different stages of the recipe.
So it all starts with the wet ingredients.
Cream together the sugar, butter, and oil until it’s smooth. Then add your eggs and a dash of vanilla for flavor. After this, add your dry ingredients to the bowl and mix until the batter is just combined. Over mixing your batter is bad. It will make for tougher, chewier brownies.
And the best part of this recipe is how the brownies just melt in your mouth. So do your best to get rid of the lumps without mixing it too much.
After your batter is all mixed together, it’s time for the chocolate. I used a bar of semisweet chocolate and then cut it with a sharp knife into smaller pieces. Of course, you can use chocolate chips, but I wanted a little more pizzazz with my brownies so I opted for actual, rough cut chocolate pieces.
Once my chocolate was chopped into bite sized pieces, I folded between 1/2 to 3/4 of the chocolate into the batter. I reserved the rest to sprinkle over the top.
Then I popped it into the oven until it was perfectly fudgy. Getting fudgy brownies requires some attention on your part. I actually removed my brownies from the oven before they were fully done baking. But they continued to cook in the hot pan outside of the oven. And they were set to the touch and no longer super wiggly when I removed the pan from the heat.
However the toothpick did not come out clean when I used it to check the doneness. Ergo, it’s a delicate dance.
But if you can get it just right, it’s so incredibly delicious. So in my opinion, the end product is absolutely, without question worth the guess work. And just look at that chocolate! It’s more than I could ever resist. And if you’re a true chocolate fan, I’ll bet the same is true for you, too.Print
