Mix it up in one bowl. It takes only five minutes.
Growing up, my mom would make brownies from a boxed recipe.Â Cookies were made from scratch, angel food cake was made from scratch, and bread was made from scratch ….Â But brownies?Â Mix in a box.Â So I assumed brownies were difficult or complicated to make by myself.Â Although they are possible, this recipe is just as easy to make as a pre-made one.Â This is a one-bowl brownie made with cocoa powder. There’s no need to melt the chocolate!Â It also makes a delicious, fudgy brownie that is my favorite recipe.Â There’s no need to use boxed mixes!
5m prep time
25m cook time
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Dutch-processed or unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 350Â°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with butter or nonstick spray. Line with parchment paper, leaving an overhang over the sides and grease once more. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together melted butter, both sugars, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
Sift in flour, cocoa powder, and salt and stir until just combined but don’t overmix. Fold in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Spread batter evenly in prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
Bake until brownies are just set, 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
