Are you on the look out for Valentines day recipes? Here's something you can whip up easily.
Now… let me be honest. I'm not a big brownie fan or chocolate fan. However, these brownies are quite special.
I baked these brownies with my nephews who are big-time brownie lovers. They have been going on and on about these “super awesome” brownie recipe for some time.
Finally, we got around to baking it the other night, and to my surprise, I kinda enjoyed it and I found myself going for more helpings ;) Even my Amma, who isn't a chocolate fan loved it.
I should say this is a very forgiving/no-fail recipe. Usually, when I bake something, I give my full attention to it. But this time my kitchen was filled with people and I was all over the place, getting dinner ready, sorting with the delivery guy, and catering to some maintenance work in between with two eager boys waiting impatiently to lick the bowl and add my not so “trusty” oven who behaves like a cranky child the moment I step away from it…the brownie came out real good!
As the name suggests, this is a pretty fudgy brownie and loaded with chocolate. There is chocolate chunks, melted chocolate, cocoa powder and to top it off, we added some nutella also. Have it with some ice cream or whipped cream and you have a winner dessert!
Hope you get to try this and like it too.

Here is the recipe…
The Best Fudgy Brownie Recipe
- 8 ounces (227 gms) Good-quality chocolate (divided)
- ¾ cup (170 gms) Unsalted butter (melted)
- 1¼ cups Sugar
- 2 Eggs (@ room temp)
- 2 tsp Vanilla extract
- ¾ cup Plain flour
- ¼ cup Cocoa powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 – 3 tbsp Nutella (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
- Chop the chocolate into chunks. Melt half (refer notes), then save the other half for later. Cool the melted chocolate till it's cool enough to touch.
- Mix the butter and the sugar, then beat in the eggs and vanilla for 1-2 minutes until the mixture has become fluffy and light in color.
- Whisk in the reserved melted chocolate (make sure the chocolate is not too hot or else the eggs will cook), then sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, being careful not to overmix as this will cause the brownies to be more cake-like in texture.
- Fold in the chocolate chunks, then transfer the batter into a parchment paper-lined square baking dish. (refer notes). If using nutella, add spoonfuls on top of the batter and gently drag it through the batter with a butter knife.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how fudgy you like your brownies, then cool completely.
- Slice, then serve with a nice scoop of ice cream or cold glass of milk or some whipping cream!
