Where are my chocolate lovers? I mean, hello, I would say most of us have a little chocolate monster inside us that likes to come out from time to time. I know our oldest daughter used to HATE anything chocolate, but even her over the years have come around to loving chocolate over time.
What Makes a Good Brownie?
Well, this one is entirely personal, I know, but for me, I like a moist, slightly chewy, not cake-like type of brownies. The top is nice and cracked, and the edges and centers debate which part is better. These brownies check off all those boxes!
My good friend calls these my "pick up line brownies" because they are so good!

These brownies are fantastic plain, and eat them by themselves or top them off with some ganache (extra decedent) or add a scoop of your favorite ice cream over them; you really can not go wrong!
When it comes to simple recipes like these, the ingredients really do matter. You want to make sure you are using good quality ingredients to ensure you get the best result—one of the main ingredients in this chocolate. Chocolate can be one of those things that can be filled with so many different ingredients when following a particular type of diet; this matters.
My favorite chocolate to use for these is the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. The reason I love this brand is because they are a top allergen company. They are dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, free from 14 common allergens, and Certified Gluten-Free and Vegan. Did I forget to mention they are delicious?
Ingredients in Chewy Fudge Brownies
Can I add in other ingredients?
Absolutely! Adding in some of the following has always worked for me.
- Extra chocolate chips
- Finely chopped nuts
- I've even added my favorite corn-free, vegan marshmallows from My Dandies into these, and they were a big hit!
What Kind of Pan Should I Use?
I get this question a lot, and you really can use any pan. I have made these in glass, metal, and even ceramic baking dishes, and they all work. I notice that with brownies in general, the edges will become more crispy on the edges with a metal pan, and a glass pan might require a few extra minutes of baking.
These brownies are simple to make and come together without any special equipment, which is even better because, hello, easier cleanup! So skip the boxed (even the gluten-free) brownies and give these a try next time you are craving a brownie. I promise they won't disappoint!
