I must admit, the only chocolate brownies that I had ever made before making our Chocolate Brownies from scratch are the ones that come from a chocolate brownie mix package… and lately I have been craving some delicious chocolate brownies and I will not make them from a chocolate brownie mix package. Max and I decided that it was time to make chocolate brownies at home, from scratch, and we haven’t looked back.
We have now been making Chocolate Brownies at home at least twice a week, this recipe is that good!
I can’t believe I was wasting my time with those disgusting brownie mix packages and if you are reading this right now, I hope that you will give this chocolate brownies recipe a try. It is unbelievable how easy it is to make brownies at home and the small amount of ingredients that you need. We used all organic ingredients, but of course, you can use the ingredients that you have available to you. All you need is butter (we use salted butter, but you can use unsalted butter), three eggs, bittersweet chocolate, flour (we used spelt), sugar, and vanilla extract.
You first start with setting the non-stick pot over medium-low heat, add your butter and chocolate chips (continuously stirring), and remove it form the heat once the butter and chocolate is melted,then add your sugar, once those ingredients are mixed together add the eggs, vanilla extract, and flour.
Butter up a non-stick pan and spread in the chocolate mixture. Put it in the oven for 17 minutes (do not over bake), when you put in your test toothpick, it will come out slightly gooey, this is exactly what you want.
Remove the chocolate brownies from the oven, put them in the fridge uncovered for 15 minutes in order to get them to solidify enough to handle because they just might be that gooey, but believe me, once you let them cool, you will have some delicious chocolate brownies in your hands. Once the chocolate brownies cool in the fridge, remove the brownies from the pan (they will come out easily), cut them up and serve. Enjoy!
