The Best Brownies Ever

Brownies. Boom. Done. That’s how I feel. Like I should make these brownies and throw some flour on the ground in a puff of smoke as a sign of triumph.

Let’s back up a little. I have been on the hunt for the perfect brownie recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I love brownies from a box. They are Delish with a capital “D”. I just like to bake things from scratch. I find it relaxing and rewarding.

However, I just haven’t been able to make brownies that taste better or even just as good as the box mix.

They are either too cake-like, doo dense (like gooey, sticky, bad dense), or too hard. I needed to find the recipe that was juuuuust right.

Then a chocolate craving hit me one weekend and I came across this fudgy recipe from Something Swanky.

These came out perfect – marvelous – delicious – spectacular.

Mission complete. Brownies found. Eat your heart out.

Double Chocolate Brownies


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Beat together the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a stand mixer bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  3. Stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Mix in the baking soda.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chunks with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  5. Once the batter forms (it will be thick), scrape it into the prepared dish and spread evenly.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, until brownies begin to pull away from the side of the pan.

  • These sound delicious! I don’t often make brownies but when I do, we really enjoy them.ReplyCancel

    • I highly recommend them! And they make the smaller pan, which is good for me because I could eat the whole pan! 🙂ReplyCancel
