  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate between 55 and 60%
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 325 and prepare an 8 inch square pan by lining it with foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a microwaveable bowl, melt butter and chocolate together in 20 second bursts, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, combine butter and chocolate mixture with sugar and stir. Add eggs and stir. Add vanilla and salt. Stir.
  4. Add flour and stir until flour is just incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth out.
  5. Bake approximately 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs, but not wet batter. The sides will be firmer than the middle, but the middle should not be liquid.
  6. Set pan on a rack to cool for about 15 minutes. Transfer pan to refrigerator to finish cooling completely- this will make the brownies easier to cut.
