Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoon cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat an 8x8 baking pan with non stick spray and line with a parchment paper. 
  • Place butter, sugar and chocolate in a pan over medium heat until all melted. Let cool for a minute.  
  • Mix in the eggs one at a time using an electric mixer (this is important). Beat very well after each addition.
  • Add in vanilla and cocoa powder. Mix well. 
  • Transfer the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Pound the pan on the counter twice.
  • Bake in the heated oven for 25 minutes until the top is crackled. 

Notes

  • It's possible to use margarine instead of unsalted butter to make these brownies. There will be no change in the texture or flavor. 
  • It's best to melt the butter, sugars and chocolate in a sauce pan over medium heat and not to use a microwave to melt the ingredients. Sometimes, melting in the microwave will make the chocolate grainy and the sugar might not dissolve completely. 
  • Make sure you're using a brand of chocolate chips that you love and trust. 
  • Make sure all the ingredients are well mixed. Since this flourless brownie recipe has no leavening agent such as baking powder, overmixing won't cause a problem. 
  • Don't over bake the brownies otherwise they will be hard and grainy. 
  • Want to go over the top? Frost these brownies homemade or store-bought chocolate frosting!
