Classic, Chewy Fudgy Brownies (VIDEO)
These are the BEST classic, chewy fudgy homemade brownies made with chocolate chips. Dozens of readers have raved about it!
What’s your favourite brownie? For me, it’s these, the classic chewy homemade brownies with a touch of fudgy consistency with that crispy top. The type of brownie you bite into you and your world becomes a mix of all sorts of textures and flavours plus the addition of delicious partially melted chocolate chips.
I knew I had to come up with the ultimate chocolate brownie recipe.
I found that the easiest way to get these type of chewy fudgy brownies was without cocoa powder and to melt chocolate chips for the fudge consistency and chocolate base. Also, I opted for making these brownies using oil instead of butter, which in my experience makes brownies chewier and makes the brownies even more moist and seems to hold the brownie a bit more together.
I made these homemade brownies for a charity event at school and kept hearing “the brownies are sooo good” then I got outed as the one who made it. Which resulted in a lot of smiling with teeth on my part, thank-yous and swelling of my head and ego. Wish I could tell you I reacted more modestly. Oops. Followed by “you should start your own baking company” and my friends who always seem to be convenient, paid-with-food awesome spokespersons go “she does.” *flips hair* “She always make cheesecakes, cakes, cookies…”
My friends are the best.
If you want these reactions, make these chewy fudgy homemade brownies! But attempt to keep the head swelling down a bit. Or not.

Classic, Chewy Fudgy Brownies (VIDEO)
- 1 cup chocolate chips, melted - I recommend Ghirardelli, (188g)
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (107g)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 large eggs, (114g) in shells
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (I use raw brown sugar, cane sugar or coconut sugar), (158g)
- 3/4 cup melted coconut oil, 150g
- 2 tablespoons water, (28g)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup chocolate chips, unmelted
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F/165 degrees C.
- Melt chocolate chips in microwave for a minute, stirring after to see if chips have melted. If not, microwave in increments of 30 seconds until completely melted. Alternatively, you can melt in over a small pot of boiling water (Not a lot of water in the pot) and put the chocolate chips it in a heat proof and melt proof bowl over the pot and stir until melted.
- In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda until combined. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, add the eggs, sugar and oil and mix until combined for about 2 minutes. Add the water and the vanilla extract. Add to the dry mixture to the wet mixture and melted chocolate chips and stir for about 3 minutes until combined.
- Stir in the last 1 cup (unmelted) chocolate chips.
- Pour into a greased, parchment lined, or a greased foil-lined 8x8 square pan. Bake for 35 minutes.
- When finished, remove from oven and allow to cool completely in pan on a wire rack. The pan should be completely cool. It can take up to an hour and a half to cool completely.

Look great. I’m going to go with half dark chocolate and half milk chocolate on the chips.
I hope you enjoy Cynthia!!
These are Miracle brownies, I’ve never tried a recipe that actually beat out box brownies but this one Did That. 35 minutes was perfect, used canola oil cos I was outta coconut, gonna make these all the time!!
Aww this makes me SO happy Eli!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
I just made these, and it was literally cake, not gooey or chewy or fudgy at all. I don’t know what I did wrong… :/
Did you weigh out the ingredients first, especially the flour?
I just measured them instead, which i realize could affect the finished brownie, but also, i was following the recipe from your Double Chocolate M&M Brownies and these two recipes are basically the same, right? (I accidentally commented on this one instead, sorry haha.) But one difference i did notice was that the M&M recipe says to sift the flour, while this one clearly says DO NOT SIFT. I did sift it. Could that be why my brownies are so crumbly and dry?
Got you! The sifting wouldn’t have caused that, but by measuring it sounds like you might have packed in too much flour by accident, causing it to be dry and crumbly. These brownies are so fudgy because of the oil that that’s the only thing that could’ve resulted in that, unless you accidentally left out an ingredient, for example. I would recommend definitely weighing them out instead since you can pack a whole 1 1/2 cups of flour by accident without realising. I really hope that helps!
Can we melt regular chocolate instead of chips
Yes! Just weigh it out! I hope you enjoy!
Hey! I was wondering if you don’t have an 8×8 could you use a different size and what would the changes to cook time be? Thanks!
What size pan do you have?
