Triple Chocolate Brownies Ingredients

Triple Chocolate Brownies raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Brownies

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (+ 1 tablespoon for tossing chocolate chips in)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup salted sweet cream butter
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate bar, chopped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chip chunks, divided

For the Chocolate Frosting (optional)

  • 1 (12-ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHOCOLATE: You can substitute different kinds of chocolate in this recipe. Use regular semisweet chocolate chips for the milk chocolate chips in the frosting and dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips for the chocolate chip chunks in the brownies.

How to Make This Triple Chocolate Brownies Recipe

For the Brownies

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Be sure to leave an overlap or “sling” of parchment paper. 

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

The overhanging parchment paper will help you to lift out the entire square of brownies so that you can cut them into smaller squares easier.

STEP TWO: Whisk together 1 cup flour and ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder in a small mixing bowl. Set it aside.

STEP THREE: Using a 2 to 3 quart saucepan over low heat, add the butter and chopped baking chocolate. Stir constantly until the butter and chocolate are completely melted. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, and allow it to cool slightly. It won’t be hot, just slightly warm.

STEP FOUR: Whisk in the granulated sugar, large eggs, and vanilla extract.

STEP FIVE: Toss 1 cup of the chocolate chip chunks in 1 tablespoon of flour, and set it aside.

PRO TIP:

Tossing the chocolate chunks in flour will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the brownie batter.

STEP SIX: Stir in the cocoa and flour mixture. Stir just until well incorporated.

STEP NINE: Evenly sprinkle the remaining un-coated chocolate chip chunks over the brownie batter.

STEP TEN: Using a small piece of wax paper, slightly press the chocolate chunks into the top of the brownie batter.

STEP ELEVEN: Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes away with slight brownie crumbs.

PRO TIP:

You can sprinkle regular chocolate chips on top of the brownies as soon as they come out of the oven. Wait 30 minutes and then use an offset spatula, using gentle pressure, to spread the melted chips.

STEP TWELVE: Allow the brownies to completely cool before frosting.

PRO TIP:

For an even chewier texture, cover the pan with plastic wrap and cool the unfrosted brownies in the refrigerator. 

For the Chocolate Frosting

PRO TIP:

You can eliminate the frosting if you prefer your brownies on their own.

STEP ONE: Using a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl, add the chocolate chips and the vegetable oil. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir and heat in 15-second intervals until the chocolate mixture is smooth.

STEP TWO: Evenly spread the melted chocolate over the brownies.

    5 stars
    I rarely comment on blogs, but today I am making an exception. I can honestly say these are the absolute best brownies I have ever eaten. People talk about “death by chocolate” but these brownies go way beyond that concept. They are so richly delicious and match well with a cup of coffee, or a glass of milk, or with anything or nothing. If you find me in a deep coma, lying beside some crumbs, it is because I ate the whole pan. I highly recommend these chunks of paradise.
