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.

Your step # 3 says “add the water & vanilla extract…” – what is the quantity of water to be added ?
Sorry! I forgot to include it in the directions; I’ve added the correct quantity. It’s 2 tablespoons of water.

Thanks Renee! 🙂
Wow! These look divine!!! Chewy, fudgy brownies are by far the way to go. I’m going to make them for a super bowl party! Can I use a 13×9 inch baking pan instead of 8×8? I’m going to use a football shaped cookie cutter for them and want to have enough to bring…probably will have to change the measurements? Can’t wait to make em!!
Yes you can! I could recommend watching the brownies between 25 – 30 minutes for doneness, since the more spread out the brownies are the faster they will cook. I hope you enjoy them! You probably wouldn’t have to change the measurements since you’re using a cookie cutter. I can’t guarantee since I haven’t tried this size but when I change my brownie pan this is what I usually do.
