What do these Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Brownies taste like?

These brownies are chocolatey, packed full of chocolate chips and so yummy. But I’d have to say the texture is my favorite thing. They’re fudgy and chewy, not cakey. Although if you’re looking for a really good cakey brownie recipe try my Blackberry Swirl Cheesecake brownies! So cocoaey!

What’s great about them is that letting them age a day makes them even chewier the next day. I love that about them.

What are the ingredients I need?

Butter – I used unsalted butter.

Dark Chocolate – I used nestle buttons

Eggs – I used large eggs.

Cocoa powder – I used Dutch cocoa powder. Unsweetened.

Salt – I used fine salt.

Sugar – I used granulated sugar, but you can use caster (superfine sugar) as well.

Vanilla ExtractAlways use good quality vanilla extract when baking, it makes a huge difference. I have a great recipe here for it if you’d like to try your own!

All-purpose flour – also known as plain flour.

Chocolate chips – dark or milk chocolate chips are good or this recipe. I’d go dark.

How do I make my brownies chewier?

Let them age a day! The longer you wait to eat them, the chewier they will be! I’d recommend letting them rest no longer than two days in an airtight container before serving!

My Top Tips for making these Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Brownies!

To make these chewier, let them stay in a container foor 1-2 days!

To make these even more chocolatey, add a shot of coffee in with the eggs! It elevates the chocolate flavor!

Chocolate Brownies

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 160°C / 320°F. Grease a 20cm square cake tin with oil spray and line the sides and bottom with baking paper. Set aside.
  • Add the butter, coffee and chocolate into a heatproof bowl and microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring each time until completely melted and smooth. Alternatively, you can melt these two ingredients together by placing the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. (don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water.
  • Add the whisked eggs and mix them into the chocolate/butter mixture. Then add the cocoa powder, salt, sugar, vanilla extract and flour and mix until well combined. Finish by adding the chocolate chips, fold through using a spatula. Pour the batter into the square baking tin and spread out evenly using a spatula. Bake for 25 minutes, take out of the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing up and serving.


Brownies can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days and are even better the next day!

I found the recipe confusing. Coffee is listed in ingredients but not directions. Oven temp was far too low for amount to cook. At 25 minutes, my brownies were still extremely doughy (and I make brownies often, just in a hotter oven and longer temp, same size pan). Once done, the brownies weren’t anything to write home about but still good; they’re brownies after all!

Hi Rebekah! Apologies about the coffee missing from the method. Have gone in and added it. It goes in with the chocolate and butter. In terms of the baking time, it’s definitely correct. Sorry you were underwhelmed! Can’t please everyone! But I’m glad you took the time to let me know! I appreciate all feedback 🙂 N x

The best brownie recipe ever! Never fails and everyone ALWAYS enjoys and asks for more! This will always be my go to brownie recipe.

The brownies had a nice chocolaty flavor. Would try it again. But how do you know whether your brownies are fudgey and gooey vs under baked?

Nick Makrides August 2, 2022 - 10:20 am

Great question Nicole! You can use the toothpick test for this brownie recipe! If it comes out clean, it means it’s overcooked. If it comes out with a bit of brown crumbs or even a slight amount of wet batter on the toothpick they’ll be fudgy. Hope that helps! N x
