  • 3 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Ganache

  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • 6 oz chopped semi-sweet chocolate (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)



  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 13-in X 9-in baking pan, set aside.
  • In a mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla, mixing until combined.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the batter in three parts, beating well after each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking dish, smooth out with a spatula. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until set. The filling will not be completely set, there will still be a slight jiggle. Allow brownies to cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring heavy cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Once boiling, remove from heat. Pour boiling cream over chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove plastic wrap and whisk together until smooth ganache forms. Pour ganache over cooled brownies. Refrigerate until ganache is set before serving.
