Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

I have been making these brownies religiously for the last year. I found the recipe on and haven't bothered to try another recipe. These are too good. Yes, too good. Simple to make and easy to please the palate. They are not too gooey and definitely not too cakey. Somehow they are the perfect combination. Gosh, I don't even think about putting ice cream with them and adding some chocolate fudge..well, I did just now. But anyway, they don't need them. They also keep very well in an air tight container for about 3 days.

Someone mentioned brownies today.

Someone mention brownies today on the What's Cooking Board.

Someone mention brownies today on the What's Cooking Board, so I made some.

Recipe ~


1 cup butter, melted

3 cups white sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove, and cool pan on wire rack before cutting.


I just had to do the brownie stack thingy. Simply Sinful.


  1. Oh those look so "melt in your mouth divine." Have you ever iced your brownies? Just put Hershey chocolate bars on top when hot out of the oven and as they melt, gently even out with a knife.

  3. Ohh - these do look good! I always love brownies, as long as they aren't cakey...these look like winners!
