Decadent Double Chocolate Brownies

June 7, 2021Teresa

Oh my gosh, these Decadent Double Chocolate Brownies just melt in your mouth. I loved the way these brownies turned out. I started with one of my favorite brownie recipes. I decreased the flour to what the original recipe was. I left out the nuts and I added miniature chocolate chips. I also used Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet chocolate. Seriously, these delectable brownies dissolved in my mouth. I would make them again in a minute–and probably eat WAY TOO MANY!

These brownies are not only decadent they’re actually pretty easy to make. They only use 7 ingredients. The slightly time-consuming part is melting the chocolate and butter. Then the mixture really needs to cool before adding it to the eggs (or you’ll have scrambled eggs). Yikes! Other then that, these brownies can be whipped up pretty quickly. I assure you that they will be downed even more quickly. Whether you serve them with ice cream and chocolate sauce or not, they are heavenly.

My husband asked me to restock the freezer back in June. He likes to have goodies on hand to hand out to neighbors, friends and people he works with. So I made four batches of these brownies. I packed three for the freezer. I think I could bake up cookies or brownies every day of the year and he’d get rid of all of them! 🙂

I took the other batch with me to a friend’s house. She was hosting a Crawfish Boil for 100+ family and friends. It was crazy and fun at the same time. I brought along a Carrot Cake Earthquake Cake and Sausage Cornbread to that event. Everything seemed to disappear quickly with that many people eating. They had a large dining table laden with desserts but people kept eating and eating. 🙂 They ran out of the jerk chicken with habanero mango sauce and had to make up another batch (about 100 more pieces)! There was so much food there. I loved the Fried Catfish and John ate his share of prawns and red beans and rice.

I limited myself to just one of these jewels, but I could have eaten three or four more easily. They were so chocolaty, so rich, so full of flavor. They are sure to cure any chocolate craving you have, that’s for sure. If you need an easy dessert for summer holidays, backyard barbecues or potlucks, then this easy brownie recipe will do it. But don’t forget to bring along a container of ice cream and some Ghirardelli chocolate sauce as well. You might as well splurge. 🙂

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Each oven is different. Because these brownies have so much sugar they take a good while to bake thoroughly. The key is baking long enough but not overcooking the brownies so they become tough. The baking time is a guide only. My oven runs slow so I usually end up baking things longer.

NOTE: You must cool the chocolate at least 10-15 minutes or you will end up with scrambled eggs!

NOTE: You can also substitute unsweetened chocolate for the bittersweet chocolate in the recipe. You can increase the amount to four-ounces or four one-ounce squares.
