  1. How not to mix the hell outta them when you put in the flour, and thus you need to do things in a certain order to be able to do that and to leave out as many leavening agents as possible.
  2. No raising of these brownies, thankee kindly! I want flat, fudgy little bites of chocolate heaven.

Description

The Best Chewy Brownies Recipe AKA Chocolate Chewy Wonders. These are for the people that love fudgey brownies!


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of white sugar
  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. Kick the tires and light the fires and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2.  Melt the butter in a pot, remove from the heat and stir in the white sugar.
  3. Once that is combined, mix in your cocoa.
  4. Add in your eggs. If you are using chocolate chips instead of chocolate chunks, you can mix  in the 2/3 of a cup after the eggs are thoroughly combined into the mix.
  5. Once all that is mixed very, very well, add in your flour and barely stir it in. Just barely. I read somewhere that stirring the flour mixture creates gluten, which in turn creates the cakey texture I don’t like for brownies. So in theory, the less your stir, the less gluten and then chewy brownies here we come!
  6. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.
  7. I used chocolate chunks, which I placed on top of the batter. They are so heavy that they sink right into it. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until the brownies pull away from the edges slightly.This is why I use the chunks, they sink in right to the top level of the brownies. Cool the brownies.

    Such a unique way of making the ganache! I’ve always just heated cream and poured over chocolate, does cooking for 20 min have a distinct impact?

    These look delicious! I love brownies, and the drizzle of chocolate makes them look so put together. (http://delectablymine.blogspot.com/)

      Ah, the finicky white chocolate ganache, luckily when you whip it, it is very forgiving!

    I made these – the brownies are AWESOME! But…I have had two failed attempts at the ganache. 1st one was completely my fault, I tried half & half with white chocolate chips and it never stiffened up – still tasted delicious though. Yesterday I made it with heavy cream and white chips and when I took it out of the fridge this morning, well…it’s like taffy when it’s cold and when it’s room temperature it’s spreadable but still “sticky”. Do you know what I could be doing wrong? I want it to be like yours!! Thanks!

    I tried the recipe, everything looked perfect except it was TOO sweet! could it be that you’ve mistaken the sugar quantity with the flour? …..please advice.

      I went back and checked and nope, it’s exactly how it’s supposed to be. They ARE sweet, I like brownies to be more like fudge than cake, I have another recipe that lends to a more cake like, less sweet recipe, but that’s just chocolate cake, IMHO 🙂

      I also have a vegan recipe I will be tackling in the new year and I KNOW that one won’t be as sweet.

      Maybe check the type of cocoa you used? Cocoa is very bitter, so at 3/4 a cup of cocoa you need the sugar to balance it out.
