Don’t you love a great tasting and easy Chocolate Brownie recipe? This is almost as easy as opening a box mix only without the added preservatives. I love to eat them with or without frosting. I also love to put chocolate chips in them. I think my favorite part about this recipe is not only how wonderful it tastes but that it only makes enough for an 8” pan. Now of course you can double or triple this recipe but I made this for the grandkids and I really didn’t want a ton of leftovers!

Thank you Henrietta!
Wow, that really does look easy. I am going to have to give this one a try.
Jeanne it is so easy! They tasted great too! You can add 1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips too!
I have never made brownies before! I am going to give it a try right after my exams end. The recipe is amazing!!
So simple! You can frost them or even put 1/2 cup of either chocolate chips or nuts in them.
Hummmm ! great 🙂
They were so easy and delicious. My grandkids devoured them! Thanks!
They definitely were! Thanks!
These look great. I love chocolate brownies and can’t wait to try this recipe. What are some other recommendations you have from your blog?
Everything scroll through some of them. I have made and recommend every recipe I post. 99% of my site is easy and delicious recipes like this one. I have many categories like beef, chicken, pizza, seafood, desserts……………
This is right up hubby’s alley, thanks!
Hahaha and it doesn’t make a huge batch so it’s perfect!
Yummmyyyy recipe of my favorite desert…😊
That’s what the grandkids said too! I didn’t frost them since it was for them. They don’t like really sweet but I do! If it was for me I would have either frosted them or put chocolate chips in them…lol
Probably has to be my favorite all-time dessert. No frosting for me ever, but I’ll take chocolate chips!
You are a true lover of brownies…lol
Yummy! Thanks for sharing.
You’re very welcome! Thanks for stopping by!
I love that! 🙂
Thanks so much for the views Diane! Have a great evening!😁
You too Lana!
They look really good! 😋
Thank you Christy! They must have been because the Grandkids had them gone in a few hours!
They look delicious – bet the kitchen smelled delicious as well.
LOL my granddaughter wouldn’t stop asking for them! They finally cooled and then I had to get my pictures and she just rolled her eyes…hahahaha Thank you Linda!
Just one more small ingredient to make those brownies perfect–so long as you don’t make a “hash” of them. 😉
Hahahahaha you’re a riot!
Yummy ! Lovely brownies !!
I was good this time and didn’t frost them or add chocolate chips…lol Thanks so much!
We call it flat cake in England where the original came from. I used 4 eggs last time and came out chewy but too chewy so will try your way now for sure.
Do you ever frost them, add chocolate chips or nuts to yours? That is very common here.
They looks soft and fudgy, my favorite!
They were! Thank you!
Thanks for reciepe I was looking for some without milk and this looks yummy. I will definitely try it 🙂
You’re welcome they are delicious!
I love chocolate brownies, especially served with some good quality vanilla icecream. You are right, this looks easy enough without the preservatives, which is what I often get as I use the box mixes in a pinch. A lot cheaper as well. I am going to try this one.
It was very good but I needed that ice cream!
They look amazing! I love brownies but always burn them 🙂 though that doesn’t stop me at all…
They are a tough one to judge. This recipe makes thin brownies and if you watch them carefully you can almost see the edges are starting to change color. I let them get that way about 1-1/2” in and take them out. Normally when I make thicker brownies I use a toothpick about the same distance from the edge and when it comes out clean I take them out.
Oh this is great. Now I won’t be able to think about anything else but these brownies all day… 😉
Hahahaha they are very tasty! Thank you!
