Easy One Bowl Fudgy Cocoa Brownies

Easy One Bowl Fudgy Cocoa Brownies- You will never use brownie mix again after trying these!I’ve got a super easy yet DELICIOUS fudgy brownie recipe for you today. Brownies can’t get any more fudgy or easier to make than this folks!

Ya’ll know brownies are my thing right? We can’t go more than a week here without making a batch. A few years back I was hooked on boxed brownie mix and to be honest I thought they were “alright”. I mainly used the mix because it’s very easy to use and also because back then I assumed that making brownies from scratch was very hard. Turns out it’s not hard at all! It may take any extra step making it from scratch but I swear it tastes 1 billion times better and once you try it you will NEVER EVER go back to brownie mix again!

Easy One Bowl Fudgy Cocoa Brownies- You will never use brownie mix again after trying these!Like I said, these brownies are simple and easy to make. The entire brownie mixture will be made in the pot or bowl you decide to melt your butter or margarine in.

If you decide to melt the butter in the microwave use a large plastic or ceramic bowl and if on the stove top then use a medium saucepan. Either way works just fine. After melting the butter add the sugar and cocoa and stir until fully combined. Then add the eggs, vanilla, flour and salt; mix and your done!

If you like you can now add 1 cup of chocolate chips, nuts, m&m’s, marshmallows, Reese’s or whatever your heart desires!Easy One Bowl Fudgy Cocoa Brownies- You will never use brownie mix again after trying these!

This recipes also doubles really well in a 9x13 pan, add 5-7 minutes baking time. The recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar; feel free to use between 3/4 cup - 1 1/4 cup depending on your personal preference. Be sure to bake these brownies for no more than 20-25 minutes. Overbaking the brownies will make them dry!

    These brownies are awesome! I’ve made them several times and they Are always a hit. I use dark CHOCOLATe and milk chocolate coco and I add a drizzle of molasses. Trust me it make the brownies go from great to divine.

    these brownies are delicious! I loved how there weren’t too many ingredients but the brownies were divine! they’re the perfect amount of chewy and soft and they’re now my go-to brownie recipe. I’ve tried a lot of recipes before and these are by far the best! I did end up cooking them for about 5-10 extra minutes and they turned out great. I would highly recommend trying these out!


    These brownies were too amazing! ! Bless the creator! I also added a quarter of baking powder to add on to the softness. My family prefers them fluffy as well.


    These brownies are amazing. I was looking for a quick easy snack for my late night sweet tooth and this delivered. I doubled the recipe to make enough for a 9×13 pan. This recipe is way better than store mix.
