Best Fudgiest Brownies

These brownies are incredibly rich and fudgy, with a perfect balance of chocolatey goodness. They are easy to make and sure to satisfy any chocolate lover’s cravings.


  • 1 cup (230g) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (90g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (175g) semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks (optional, for extra chocolatey goodness)


  1. Preheat your oven:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
  1. Melt the butter:
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir occasionally until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  1. Mix wet ingredients:
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  1. Add melted butter:
  • Gradually pour the slightly cooled melted butter into the sugar and egg mixture, stirring constantly until smooth and well combined.
  1. Combine dry ingredients:
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt into the wet mixture. Stir until just combined and no streaks of flour remain. Be careful not to overmix.
  1. Fold in chocolate chips (optional):
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips or chunks, if using, until evenly distributed in the batter.
  1. Bake:
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter).
  1. Cool and serve:
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into squares. This helps them set and become fudgier.

Tips for Success:

  • Use high-quality cocoa powder for the best chocolate flavor.
  • Do not overbake the brownies; they should be moist and fudgy.
  • For an extra touch, sprinkle some flaky sea salt on top of the brownies before baking to enhance the chocolate flavor.

Enjoy these best fudgiest brownies as a decadent treat any time of day!
