One Bowl Brownies

Everyone needs a go-to chocolate brownie recipe that whips up super fast using ingredients you probably already have on hand.  And if it only messes up one bowl in the process?  Well, that’s even better!  Of course when my friend Natalie shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago, insisting that these were the best brownies on the planet, I have to admit, I was skeptical.  After all, I’ve already publicly declared my allegiance to brownies from a box.  How much better could these ones be?

So. Much. Better.

Fudgy, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth-and-make-you-want-to-cry better.

I know when I’ve been beaten.  These One Bowl Brownies win the gold medal, hands down.

But do you want to know the best part of all?  You can make these brownies using 12 ounces of any chocolate you happen to have sitting around.  I used milk chocolate chips for this particular batch, but come Monday I will definitely be confiscating, er repurposing all those chocolate eggs from the Easter Bunny.  You know, to make brownies for my kids. 😉

      I literally JUST did that. I didn’t have enough choc chips and the candy was nearing the end of its life.

    That does sound easy! I don’t think I’ll be waiting until Monday…
    One thing I’d watch out for though is putting your eggs right into the melted chocolate, if it’s too hot it could start cooking them before you’ve mixed well. That just means we need to ‘test’ 😉 the temperature with a finger right? Thanks for sharing Ruth!

    I put these in mini cupcake tins to take to a bonfire and they turned out amazingly!!!! Soo cute and tasty and I put a tiny bit of vanilla frosting on some of them and those were great too!

    I just threw a batch of these in the oven! I was short on chocolate chips a bit so I did sub in some peanut butter. Hoping I didn’t ruin the recipe! My husband will be so excited to try these. This was my first time making brownies 🙂

    these looks so good! But I have an metal aluminum 8×8 baking pan not a glass pan. I was wondering do I still keep the oven at the same temp and time?? Bc somewhere I was reading on some other recipes they said for aluminum and glass baking dishes they changed the oven temp and time. Thanks I really wanna try it!

      You would need to adjust the time, glass cooks faster than metal.

    Do you ever have problems with the chocolate seizing? I made them anyway, but the chips/butter went from melty to thick thick. I’m still going to eat them. I’m wondering if there was maybe a drop of water in the bowl or something. :/ Just wanted to know if that’s normal.

    Has anyone had success with this recipe in a 9×13???

      You can try a 9×9 pan but there is not enough batter for a 9×13 pan.
