I’m always on the hunt for the perfect brownie. But, there’s a flaw in that plan. The “perfect brownie” really depends on my mood.

Sometimes I’m in the mood for a fudgy brownie with powdered sugar on top. Sometimes these buttermilk brownies are the answer to my chocolate cravings! And every once in awhile, a little peanut butter brownie can’t hurt either!

Today though, I was on a quest to create a THICK brownie. But it couldn’t be cakey. Because I’m sorry, I am NEVER in the mood for a cake-like brownie. I’d rather just have chocolate cake.

These Bakery Style Brownies are exactly what you’d expect a good bakery to crank out, yet you can make them at home, anytime!

And, they held up to a little bake sale shenanigans. My kids think it’s fun to say “my mom loves to bake and would be happy to bring 50 dozen treats to the bake sale. Tomorrow.”

Okay, I exaggerate a little bit there….I only brought 3 dozen, but usually “tomorrow” is an accurate term. “Oh mom, I forgot to tell you I signed you up to bring treats to my class. Tomorrow.” “Oh mom, did I mention there’s a bake sale and I signed us up for brownies. Tomorrow.” You get the point.

Anyway, these Bakery Style Brownies are our new go-to bake sale treat. We cut each large square in half to make a triangle, then dunked them in melted chocolate and added some fun topping: sprinkles, m&m’s, toffee bits! What toppings would YOU use?

A few tips about these brownies:

  • These can be made in ONE bowl. Whether you use a medium sized saucepan, or microwave safe large bowl…clean up is a breeze!
  • I use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips in my brownies, use what you have on hand! You can even toss some in at the end to make them chocolate chip brownies! Or toss in some walnuts for some nutty brownies!
  • LINE your baking dish with parchment paper (or foil). Not only does it make clean up easier, but you can just lift your brownies out of the pan and cut them!
  • DO NOT OVER STIR. When you add in the dry ingredients, use slow but big stirs to incorporate the dry into the wet. Just when you see no more dry, STOP STIRRING!
  • Want to eat them sooner? Chill them in the refrigerator so they are easier to cut. Want to make a brownie ice cream sundae? Eat them warm!
  • If dipping them in chocolate and adding topping, you’ll definitely want to wait until they have cooled COMPLETELY. Then cut them in 9 large squares, and cut those squares diagonally so you’ll be left with 18 triangles. I use this melting chocolate for perfect results!

You now have in your fingertips the perfect bakery style brownie recipe! ENJOY 🙂

  3. Hahaha, I love that.  “Tomorrow!”  Because its not like you could possibly have had anything else to do right??  You were really hoping to bake 3 dozen brownies that night;)  Nonetheless, I have no doubt these would hold up (and sell out!) at a bake sale.  YUM!
