These double chocolate brownies are seriously the best ever: rich, fudgy, moist, and everything you could want in a brownie. Plus they’re easy to make!
Are words really necessary?
I fear a drawn out explanation of why I made these brownies would be superfluous. You have eyes; you can see the photos. I made them for the same reason you should make them: because they’re freaking amazing.
If you need more, how about this: they’re rich and fudge-like, not like those sissy boxed cake brownies. These double chocolate brownies bake up with that delightfully chewy crust- my personal favorite part- and magically crinkly top. If you pause long enough to admire them before digging in, you’ll notice they’re actually quite pretty.
In the event you devour them before you have a chance to look, you can always consult my photos for evidence.
double chocolate brownies
adapted from Money Saving Mom
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup melted butter, divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the cocoa powder and baking soda. Mix in half the melted butter, and then the boiling water. When everything is well combined, add the sugar and mix well before adding eggs, vanilla, remaining butter, and salt. Add flour, stir just until combined, and fold in chocolate chips.
Transfer to a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy chocolate?
Not enough richness for you? How about this brown sugar pound cake with caramel icing? Or these cinnamon roll bars?

I love brownies! I always requested them in place of cake for my birthday. These sound delicious! 🙂
That’s brilliant, Lisa! I usually request some sort of rich chocolate cake-alternative, too. Maybe this year it’ll be these!
I am blind so unfortunately can’t see the pics, but your description has me drooling, even though I don’t normally care for brownies. I love the idea of them being fudgey.
If you like fudgy, you’ll LOVE these, Astrid! I think if any brownie recipe could win you over, it’d be this one.

ooh, 2 c. of sugar….have you ever made it with less Abby? These look ah-may-zing!
I know! These are definitely special occasion brownies. I’d bet you could reduce it to 1 1/2 cups, maybe even more if you added honey or another alternative. I’d love to know if you try it!

Omg these look amazing. I have a serious chocolate addiction… these might be next on my list! x
Hi, I’m abby, and I’m a chocolate addict, too. You won’t regret making these!

Brownies are the only dessert food I could overload myself on, thanks for sharing!
Yes! I love dessert, but I usually have self-control. Not so with these guys.
Wow! Just Wow! I want to lick my screen.
Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays link up. Hope to see you back next week.
Thanks, Audrey, for the comment and for hosting a fun linkup!

I want to put these in my pocket and carry them around with me everyday.
Oh my gosh! That is literally the most accurate description of these brownies ever.
YUMMY! I can’t wait to try these out with my daughter.
Thank you, Heather! Let me know what y’all think!
Hey, your recipe looks great – one quick question: when does the other half of the butter get put in? Thanks!
Oops! So sorry about that! I’ve fixed the recipe; the rest of the butter goes in with the eggs and vanilla. Thanks for pointing that out!
