Whether or are just looking for a way to fulfill a chocolate craving or a sweet treat to make for Valentine’s day, theses one bowl fudgy brownies are it! These are like the fudgy brownies you can get from a box mix, but even better.
This brownie uses 3 types of chocolate. You have unsweetened chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder that make up the batter. Boiling water is added to the unsweetened chocolate to melt it. Then you whisk in in cocoa powder. Then you also have semisweet chocolate chips folded into the batter. You could also add in some nuts if desired.
For the fat used in these one bowl fudgy brownies there is actually 2 kinds. There is canola and butter. For a cake brownie, butter is a better option because it helps rise the batter. For denser, fudge type brownies, oil can be used. Since this version has both, you get fudginess with a rise with this batter.
There is one other part of this recipe that is different from your typical brownie recipe. It uses 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks. It’s wat creates the delicious fudginess. The yolks add to the moisture in these.
