These are delicious. Hands-down the best brownies I’ve ever had. They are the perfect balance of cake and fudge, and the flakey top is perfect.

Update, 2018: These are the only brownies I make. They are absolutely fabulous. Haven’t found anything better!


I don’t know what’s come over Joseph, but he’s baking up a storm! I love smelling brownies in the oven without having to do any work, and it turns out he is great at baking. He’s always been a phenomenal cook, but I usually take over the desserts. This is the second sweet he’s baked this week!

I’m handing over the brownie-baking to Joseph from now on!


I get thirsty every time I eat one of these–keep a glass of milk on the side!

Bombshell Brownies from Allrecipes.com, slightly altered:

1 cup butter, melted
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 Tbs vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.

Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove, and cool pan on wire rack before cutting.


Leonardo is interested in everything in our house. But thankfully he didn’t want to eat these, only smell them–kitties can’t eat chocolate!

  1. The last photo is too freaking cute!! These brownies look amazing. I already have a go-to recipe, but I must try this one out!! YUM! Lovely photos.

  2. I just made these-but I can’t for the life of me figure out the (european) oven in my apartment-I’m not sure they are done enough… :( I hope they’ll be okay-the batter was delicious!

      Oh no! What are you having problems with? I have a European oven as well, so I might be able to help!

      • :) I just don’t know which setting to put it on-the one with a bar of heat on the top and bottom, or the one that looks like a bar of heat on the bottom with air on the top?

  3. These definitely look like they fit the name! And with a flakey crust, how can I resist. Definitely bookmarked!

  5. I made these yesterday and they were the best! I’ve tried so many recipes and these really top them all. They were everything a brownie should be, and very easy to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
