These chocolate brownies absolutely rock! They contain more than enough chocolate, which makes them true chocolate lovers’ favorite! Another great treat for chocolate lovers is Thumbprint Chocolate Truffles. I used dark chocolate for this brownie recipe, so I’m sure you will love them even if you are not a chocolate addict. You can replace it with sweet mik chocolate if you like it sweeter.

These chocolate brownies are extremely chocolatey, moist and gooey inside, a little crispy on the outside. You will love that little cracking sound when you bite it.

I love the color range on these chocolate brownies too. You see they are light brown on the outside and dark brown on the inside.

I didn’t want it to taste too nutty, so I kept the amount of hazelnuts very little. The chocolate flavor is truly outstanding in these brownies! Ready fo a real chocolate explosion?

Chocolate brownies are mostly eaten in Winter. I agree that nothing could replace the joy of eating these on a rainy or snowy day while watching your favorite series! What if I tell you these brownies are perfect when chilled too? You can even have them with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on the top! You can turn these chocolate brownies into an amazing summer treat this way!

    WARNING TO WHOEVER MAKES THIS RECIPE:
    The steps fail to include where to put in the sugar. Even though Sugar is in the ingredient list it is not included in the steps and can be easily missed!!! Be sure to melt it with chocolate and butter at the start!!!!!

      Oh my god! How could I miss sugar in a brownie recipe? Thanks so much Sarah for warning! I’ve just added sugar in the instructions.

      • sharonne says

        it, acctualy, says in the recipe to whisk the sugar with the eggs. the thing that I’m wandering about is just how well do you need to whisk the eggs? do I need to make foam with an electrical whisk or just a whisk by hand will do?

    Hi!
    (Before all, please excuse me for my english, i’m french..)
    I just made that brownie, and (for once!) followed the instructions to the letter (i just didn’t have any vanilla).
    However, the result is certainly pretty good but… not exactly like yours. The inside is absolutely not that dark (what kind of chocolate do you use?) and moist (although i baked it for only 20min), even if the crusty is quite similar (same colour, plus i loved the cracking!). I wouldn’t say it”s for true chocolate lovers..
    Do you think i did something wrong??
    Anyway, it’s not as good as i expected (your pictures are sublime), but still quite addictive! ;)
    Thanks for this recipe, and i hope you’ll give me an answer!
    Lou

    Hi Lou, sorry to hear that it wasn’t how you expected. Did you use dark chocolate or milk chocolate? I used dark chocolate and it made my brownies dark inside. It’s interesting that yours is not moist inside although baked 20 min. Could it be because of your pan? If it’s too large for these measurements, it will be thinner and drier. Plus it bakes faster. I used 28x16cm rectangular pan. Hope these help!

    I’m so glad you answered so quickly!
    Well, i used a 27×18 pan, so apparently it’s not the problem. But i must say my oven is quite hot, maybe i should have set it on 150-160°C..! Next time i’ll try that. Plus i used dark chocolate but only with 51% cocoa, i should try with a 60 or 70%.
    I’ll let you know how it goes ;)
    Thanks again for your answer!

    • says

      It’s definitely my pleasure to reply your valuable comments. I forgot to mention that the one I used was 70%. You’re right, the temperature of ovens might change. Hope you will be pleased with your next try. Would love to hear about it when you make!

    Can you translate to cups, teaspoons, tablespoons, and other measurements used in America?

    • says

      Hi Jan, please find the converted measurements as follows:
      3/4 cup dark chocolate
      1/2 stick butter
      1 cup+2tbsp sugar
      3 eggs
      1/2 tsp vanilla powder
