Dark Chocolate Brownies prove that sometimes the simplest desserts are the best. Rich and fudgy with a bold cocoa flavor, these one-bowl brownies are a dark chocolate lover's dream.


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup semi-sweet morsels
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar, optional garnish


  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 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Pour batter into dish, spreading evenly. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-28 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.


  • For even more dark chocolate flavor, swap out the semi-sweet morsels for dark chocolate chips.
  • Spread your favorite chocolate frosting over these brownies instead of powdered sugar if you prefer.
  • The dark chocolate brownies will look a little underdone when they come out of the oven. I like them that way! They'll continue setting up a bit as they cool.
  • For a more well done brownie, add an additional 3 to 5 minutes to the baking time.
  • Line your baking pan with parchment paper. When the brownies are done cooling, you can grab the ends of the parchment paper to slide them out of the pan easily.

  • Store brownies in airtight container at room temperature or freeze for up to 3 months.
