Melt-in-your-mouth Brownies

I love brownies and was not picky about them until I stumbled upon the “Adult Brownies” sold at Andronicos Market.  I was hooked.  This brownie has a heavenly melt-in-your-mouth, rich, dark chocolate, moist, and fudgy texture (there are testaments to this brownie if you google it).  What to do with this new addiction?  I live too far from any Andronicos to just pick one up whenever I have a craving for it.  So I set out to find a recipe that can give me that same satisfaction.  I have come pretty close to finding it.  Coco and Me’s and Nigella Lawson’s are just the recipes to do the trick.  I tried both recipes and secretly enjoyed both brownies all by myself.  In this post, I have adapted Nigella’s recipe by substituting nuts with unsweetened cocoa powder, and omitted the sauce.


225 g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids

225 g butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

180 g granulated sugar

3 eggs, beaten

88 g unsweetened cocoa powder

Makes 16 squares

1. Preheat the oven to 338 F degrees.

2. Combine butter and chocolate in a saucepan.  Heat over low heat, stir constantly until smooth.  Remove the pan off the heat, mix in the vanilla and sugar.  Set aside the mixture and let it  cool.

3. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs  and incorporate it into the chocolate mixture. Whisk to mix well.

4. Add the cocoa powder to the mixture.  Using a spatula fold everything together.

4. Grease a 8 inch square baking pan (tin or Pyrex) with butter.  Pour in the mixture and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top has set but still give a little jiggle in the middle when you shake it.  It is best not to over bake the brownies so when it has cool down you will have a moist and gooey result.

5. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before cutting into squares.

Enjoy this luxurious brownies with cup of hot coffee, glass of cold milk, a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of ice cream, or whatever your palate desires.

  1. Tina, you’ve definitely outdone yourself this time…Those look fabulous! And no wheat, either. I’ll have to tweak it just a little more to get rid of the dairy and etc, then I’ll let you know how they turn out. 🙂
