The best brownies are typically chewy and fudgy, with an almost melt-in-your-mouth texture to accentuate the rich chocolate flavors. Ultra Fudgy Brownies takes that idea and sprints with it. Everything from the melted chocolate-infused interior to the bursts of even more chocolate makes these brownies impossibly delicious and almost ooey-gooey. Ultra Fudgy Brownies are the perfect treat whether it's Valentine's Day or just a day where you want to spoil your loved one or yourself.


• 8 ounces good-quality chocolate, semi-sweet • 12 tablespoons butter, melted • 1 1/4 cups sugar • 2 eggs • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour • 1/4 cup cocoa powder • 1 teaspoon salt


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.

Step 3

Chop the chocolate into chunks.

Step 4

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 of the chocolate in the microwave, heating it in 20-second intervals and stirring between intervals.

Step 5

In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar using an electric hand mixer until thoroughly combined.

Step 6

Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until the mixture is fluffy and light, for about 1-2 minutes.

Step 7

Slowly whisk in the melted chocolate, making sure it is not too hot to prevent scrambling the eggs.

Step 8

Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt, and fold them into the wet ingredients as gently as possible. Overmixing will ruin the fudgy texture of the brownies.

Step 9

Fold in the unmelted chocolate chunks.

Step 10

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.

Step 11

Bake until the brownies reach your desired level of doneness, about 20-25 minutes.

Step 12

Allow it to cool completely before serving.
