Best Chocolate Brownies
These fudgy brownies are simple to make and will have everyone coming back for seconds. For the best results, we suggest using Lindt unsweetened chocolate.
- 3 Ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 1/8 Cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 Teaspoon flaky sea salt
- 2/3 Cups all-purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving at least a 1-inch overhang around the edges of the pan, and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
Heat the chocolate and the butter in a heatproof bowl over a double-boiler until all of the chocolate is melted, stirring to combine. Let the chocolate and butter mixture cool slightly. Whisk the sugar into the chocolate. Then whisk in the eggs, 1 at a time, then the vanilla and the salt.
Finally, stir in the flour. Once all of the flour is incorporated, pour into the prepared baking pan and bake the brownies for approximately 25-30 minutes, or just until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let the brownies cool in the pan, then lift them out of the pan using the parchment overhang. Remove them from the parchment onto a cutting board, and cut into desired sizes and shapes. This recipe makes approximately 16 brownies when cut into 2-inch squares.
