Dark Chocolate Brownies

My husband is not much of a sweet eater but he loves dark chocolate! I decided to tweak my homemade brownie recipe and use dark chocolate cocoa powder for him and they turned out fabulous! These brownies are wonderful…and slightly addicting!

My plan is to bake a batch up for Valentine’s Day! They’re great by themselves or with ice cream and would be quite festive frosted with sprinkles or topped with whipped cream and a cherry!


1 1/8 cup sugar

1/3 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder

3/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

6 tablespoons butter


Mix dry ingredients together in large mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl, cream butter and eggs; add to dry ingredients. Stir until moist.

Pour into lightly greased 8 x 8 baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350°.

Cool in pan; cut into squares & enjoy!

  1. I have never made (or tried) homemade brownies, and I am out of a mix. I may try these this weekend. Hubby loves brownies.

    May I add that YOU’RE NOT HELPING MY DIET!! 🙂


    1. They are really good, really easy & much better than anything out of a box! (Sorry about the diet though!)

    1. Yes plain flour! I suppose you could substitute self rising if you leave out the baking powder & salt…I haven’t tried though (I typically just use plain flour!)

  2. Brownies were baked this morning – waiting for dinner to try them. I tried something else new. Snow Ice Cream! Have you ever made it? It is delicious (and so inexpensive)! 12 cups snow, 1-14 oz. can of condensed milk, 1 tsp vanilla. YUM! I cant wait to try it with these brownies.

    1. We made a ton of snow cream last winter! It was delicious! However we made it with sugar & vanilla…the condensed milk sounds rich! If we get another snow this winter we’ll have to try that!!

  3. Getting ready to go put my 2nd batch in the oven! Thank you so much for this yummy & simple recipe…I just happened to have all of the ingredients on hand and like the fact that they taste better than the boxed mixes =) Not one was left in the pan the second day…
