I’ve been craving brownies for weeks but I try not to give into cravings unless they really stick around. Brownies are one thing though that I have a hard time not giving in to. They’re so so so good and generally best right out of the box. Yes, I said it and it’s beyond true. Boxed is best.
Well, except if you don’t have any boxed brownies in the house. Then what do you do? Well, I decided I would try tackling my desire to make a good homemade brownie yet again (I’ve tried before here, here and here). They’re all so good but I wanted one to be gooey the day of and good days later, just like the boxed variety.
Here it is. I found it. And of course, it’s by tasteofhome! It might have taken me years to find and try out different recipes, but I finally found it. They are gooey, almost raw-like in the middle when you make them. And even better, they firm up a tiny bit the next day. But you can keep eating them all week because they taste just as good with every passing day. These are good. Like really good!
Try them and let me know if you agree in the comments below!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2/3 cup butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules, optional
- 2 3/4 cups bittersweet chocolate chips, divided
- 4 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325. Line a 9-in. square baking pan with parchment paper, letting ends extend up sides, and set aside.
- In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugars, butter, water and, if desired, coffee granules; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add 1 3/4 cups chocolate chips and stir until melted. Cool slightly.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs until foamy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla; gradually whisk in chocolate mixture. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; stir into chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining chocolate chips.
- Pour into prepared pan. Bake on a lower oven rack 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs (do not overbake). Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
- Lifting with parchment paper, remove brownies from pan. Cut into squares. Enjoy!
