Dark Chocolate Brownies: delicious, one bowl, from scratch fudgy brownie recipe #brownies

It occurred to me after posting THIS RECIPE, that I have never shared my favorite dark chocolate brownie recipe.

I’ve just been hoarding it all this time. I’ve made brownie bites using a variation of this recipe…but haven’t share these dark fudge brownies. Until now.

This recipe takes one bowl. I know that’s important to some of you. Being able to whip it up in about as much time as it takes to make the boxed version (Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate is exactly what this tastes like). I’m not even kidding.

So what’s stopping you from making these brownies? And, what’s stopping you from then making some frosting with caramel sauce?

Or, just eat them with a little powdered sugar, totally perfect in every way.

A Perfect Dark Chocolate Brownie Recipe

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 22 minutes

Rich, fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies. Simple. From Scratch. And Perfect.


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup semi-sweet morsels (optional


  1. In a glass bowl, melt butter in microwave for 30 seconds to one minute. Add sugar, flour, cocoa and eggs. Stir with a spoon until well combined. Fold in morsels
  2. Line a 9inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Pour batter into dish, spreading evenly. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes. I like my brownies a little under done and fudgy. You can add about 3-5 minutes for more well done, if desired.
  3. Cool completely. Top with powdered sugar or your favorite frosting recipe. ENJOY.

  1. Tried these last night, and they were absolutely delicious! Such a quick and easy recipe too. I was feeling a little over the top, so after pouring the first half of the batter in the pan, I placed a layer of mini Twix bars on top, pressed them down a bit, then poured the remaining batter over everything……my boyfriend said they were the best brownies he’d ever had! Making another pan tonight, but this time with Twix and Kit Kats….don’t judge me. 🙂

  2. These were pretty good! I would recommend using a scant 1/4 tsp of salt as well as tsp of vanilla. I even added some milk to thin the batter out. Naturally, my bake time was a bit longer (~32 min total). Texture was a lot like the inside of an Oreo truffle. Moist but also very dense… that’s a good thing! 
    Will use this recipe again. Thank you, Aimee!

  3. Happened upon a neighborhood block party this morning and knew I needed to bring a little treat with me when we returned (new to the area). This recipe came back in my google search for a quick brownie recipe. They are amazing!! So easy to whip up, was lucky I had dark chocolate cocoa powder on hand – and have decided I’m only ever using dark chocolate for brownies moving forward. Plate of brownies were eaten up instantly! Thank you for the great recipe! 

    1. So glad they were a hit!!! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find other delicious recipes to try 🙂
