Alright, I have to admit, I really enjoy the BIG box of Ghiradelli Brownie Mix from Costco…The brownies are delicious, easy to make, and require little to no ingredients.
However, there is something that makes homemade brownies that much more rich, flavorful, and thick/chewy! Maybe it’s the butter, maybe it’s the love poured into making them. You can decide on that one.
These homemade brownies are thick, chewy, rich in chocolate flavor, and super simple to make!

These brownies only require 1 saucepan to prepare them, and 1 8X8 or 9X9 baking tray!
Simple Homemade Thick & Chewy Fudgy Brownies
Yield: 12 brownies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Simple Homemade Thick and Chewy Fudgy Brownies are the perfect quick dessert. They only take a few minutes and will completely satisfy your chocolate cravings.
- 12 tablespoons Salted Butter
- 1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
- 2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 3 large Eggs
- 1 cup Flour
- A heaping 1/2 cup chocolate chunks (we used ghiradelli bittersweet baking chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8×8 or 9×9 square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Set a medium sized saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter. Next, add the granulated sugar and vanilla. Stir well with a wire whisk. Then, whisk in the cocoa powder. Remove from heat. Be sure to let the mixture cool before adding egg in order to avoid scrambling the egg!
Add the eggs, one and a time, whisking between each addition until the eggs are fully combined. Add the flour and stir well with a wooden spoon until the flour is fully incorporated, but do not beat. Add the chocolate chunks and stir gently to fold them into the batter.
Pour batter into the previously prepared baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 – 35 minutes. Cool completely!
Remove parchment paper (with brownies) from the pan. Peel away the parchment paper and cut the brownies into serving size pieces.
