Chocolate Brownie Recipe


This Chocolate Brownie Recipe is a mixture of fudgy and crunchy and when served with vanilla ice cream ummmmmm.

I got this recipe from Cooks Illustrated and tweaked a bit so we can use with our great KitchenAid Mixer. Dont be scared because of the amount of ingredients, the brownie is REALLY easy to make.


 – 1/3 cup good quality cocoa powder

– ½ cup of boiling water

– 2 tablespoons of hot strong brewed coffee

– 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped

– 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted

– ½ cup plus 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

– 2 large eggs + 2 yolks

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

– 2 and 1/2 cups of sugar

– 1 and 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour

– Pinch of salt

– 6 ounces of milk chocolate morsels


Preheat your oven to 350F.

In your KitchenAid Mixer bowl add cocoa powder, boiling water and hot brewed coffee and whisk it well. Add bittersweet chocolate and let it sit for 1 minute and whisk it until dissolved.

With the whipping attachment on, start your mixer on medium speed and add melted butter and vegetable oil to the mix until combined. Add eggs, yolks and vanilla extract and keep mixing it.

Add sugar and mix it until completely dissolved. Turn down your mixer to the slowest speed and add salt and flour just until combined. In a small bowl, add milk chocolate morsels and sprinkle a little flour (this will prevent the morsels to sink into the bottom of the pan).


Spray cooking spray on a cake pan and pour the brownie mixture.

Into the oven it goes for about 30-35 minutes.

Let it cool down a little bit before serving.

Decorate with powdered sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream.
