Brownies

The most decadent brownie I have had. It's topped with a thick marshmallowy layer and then drizzled with more chocolate.

Ingredients

For the Brownie:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar 200g
  • 1 cup brown sugar 200g, lightly packed
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder 75g
  • 1 cup flour 120g
  • 1 teaspoon salt 6g
  • 1.5 cup dark chocolate chips 260g
  • 1 cup melted butter 225g, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp coffee 15mL
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract 15mL

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prep a 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and coffee then mix together well.
  • Add the white and brown sugars to the mixture and whisk together well.
  • Sift cocoa powder, flour, and salt into the bowl and mix until just combined
  • Toss in chocolate chips (or chunks) and fold into the batter.
  • Add batter to pan and smooth to the edges. You can add more chocolate chips to the top before baking if desired.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until the center is just set. You'll notice the center does not wiggle when the pan is moved.

Notes

  • If you don't have an eight by eight inch pan for your brownies just use foil to create one or two walls for a smaller baking dish. Line with parchment and you'll be good to go!
  • Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to your brownies will take a way from that nice fudge-like texture. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don't have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off. 
  • Don't over-bake your brownies. Unlike cake layers brownies will not have springy center and a skewer inserted into the center will not come out clean. Your brownies are done when the center is set and you see the top just begin to crack. 
  • Add toasted nuts, crushed candy cane, toffee, or even candy like M&Ms to your brownies for an extra kick of flavor.
