Better Brownies


    • 1 Cup (2 sticks) butter
    • 1 ¼ Cups cocoa powder
    • 4 Large eggs
    • 1 Teaspoon salt
    • 1 Teaspoon baking powder


  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract (I use my homemade extract of rum and vanilla beans)
  • 1 ½ Cups all purpose flour
  • Finally, 1 Cup chocolate chips/chunks (I prefer good quality chocolate such as Jouvay



01Preheat oven to 350 F and line a 9×13 baking dish with foil, allowing it to hang over the edges. Spray foil with non-stick spray and set aside.

02In a small pot, melt butter over medium low heat. Once completely melted, add in the sugar and stir together. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring continually. Don’t let it boil.

03Pour the butter/sugar mixture into a large bowl (or your stand mixer bowl). Add in cocoa powder and mix to combine.

04Add in eggs, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Beat until fully incorporated.

05With the mixer on low, slowly add in flour until just combined.

06Stir in chocolate chips and make sure they are evenly distributed.

07Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

08Once cool, lift the brownies out of the pan using the foil overhang. Peel back the foil and cut into squares. Eat up or store in an airtight container.

09Makes 15 servings.
