Look, Sybil’s having her baby. It’s tense; you’re gonna want some chocolate, just trust me on this one. And these are possibly the greatest chocolate brownies I’ve ever encountered in my entire life. Rich, fudgy, so, so good. Bake up a plate and have it on hand.

Best Damn Brownies

Adapted from Martha Stewart


1 stick (8T) butter
4 oz bittersweet chocolate
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c flour
1/4 c chopped walnuts, pecans, or chocolate chips (optional)


Butter an 8″ x 8″ baking pan and line with buttered parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Melt the bittersweet chocolate together with the butter. Let cool slightly. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, and whisk in teh salt, sugars, and vanilla.

Whisk the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Fold in flour until just combined. Stir in nuts or chocolate chips if using. Pour batter into the prepared ban and bake 35-40 minutes, until shiny and beginning to crack. Cool in pan on a rack, slice and serve.
