These delicious homemade brownies are one of our favorites.  If you love rich, moist, thick, chocolatey brownies that must be washed down with a glass of milk – these are it!

These are delicious on their own or served with a side of vanilla ice cream.

I prefer to serve immediately.  I think they are best when they are warm.  So I make them within a few hours of when I intend to serve.  Make sure to keep them in a sealed container so they do not harden.

Recipe notes: I use Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, but you don’t have to use dark. In the brownies pictures, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I normally use dark chocolate chips. So, in the recipe I listed what I used in the picture. But you can use whatever type of chips you want.

I know I have such an odd number of minutes for the suggested baking time. That’s just what we prefer. If you’d like them less gooey, or your oven cooks slower – then leave them in a few more minutes.

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 23 minutes
Total Time: 43 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups of white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips (I usually buy Kroger brand - I like that they are not so small)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract


  • Melt butter over medium heat in a sauce pan
  • Just before butter is completely melted - add sugar.  Stir until butter is completely melted and sugar is mixed evenly into the melted butter.
  • Transfer melted butter and sugar mixture into bowl.  I use my KitchenAid Mixer
  • In same bowl, mix together butter/sugar mixture, salt, baking powder, vanilla extract, eggs, cocoa powder and flower.  (I allow the mixer to run for a couple minutes - mixture will be thick)
  • When all above ingredients are mixed thoroughly - stir in chocolate chips.
  • IMMEDIATELY pour into greased 13x9 baking pan.  (The longer you wait - the thicker and harder to transfer the mixture)
  • Bake at 350 for 23 minutes.  Your oven may require a few more minutes.  (I know that is an odd number - but it will continue to cook in the pan for a minute or two once it is removed from the oven.  Overdone brownies are just not yummy!)


Additional Topping Ideas:

  • Melt chocolate and shortening together - drizzle over top of brownies
  • Add chopped nuts
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar over top of brownies
