  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder i.e. Hershey's Special Dark
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • In a double boiler or in a heat proof bowl over 1 inch simmering water, melt together butter and 1 cup chocolate chips. Melt until completely smooth.
  • Meanwhile, In a separate mixing bowl, using a whisk, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add remaining chocolate chip, toss until coated.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, corn syrup and vanilla.
  • Temper the wet ingredients with ¼ cup melted chocolate. Gradually whisk in the remaining melted chocolate, mix well. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Once cooled, add chocolate mixture to the sifted dry ingredients. Mix by hand until fully moistened.
  • Spread evenly in pan. Place into the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center shows moist crumbs. Do not over bake.
  • Cool in the pan on a cooling rack for at least 2 hours before cutting Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


  • You can bake these brownies in a 13 x 9 inch or two 9 x 9 inch pans, if desired. When baked in a 13 x 9 inch pan the center may be more gooey. Bake for 25 -27 minutes.
  • If you over bake these brownies, they will be dry. When testing the center, look for moist crumbs not a clean toothpick. When you see moist crumbs, they're ready to remove from the oven.
  • If making in cup cake form, spritz the cup cake liners with cooking spray before filling for easy release. Bake for 22-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes back with moist crumbs. Adjust the baking time according to your oven, if needed.
