  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1.5 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • Sea Salt for sprinkling optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.
  2. In the microwave or a saucepan, melt the butter and sugar and mix until well combined. Make sure the mixture is slightly cooled, add eggs one at a time, and finally vanilla. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients: dark chocolate cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Fold in wet ingredients and mix until the dry has been completely incorporated.
  4. Add dark chocolate chips and pour batter into the 9x13 pan. Batter will be thick and need to be smoothed with a spatula.
  5. Bake for 25, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Do not over bake!

  6. Let brownies cool before cutting into small pieces.
  7. Brownies should be stored in an air tight container for up to a few days, or frozen for a few months.
