Dark Chocolate Brownies | Frugal & Simple

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!
