Ultimate Chocolate-Loaded Super Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies - HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Are you looking for the BEST chocolate brownies recipe?

Yes and I have already found one at here! It is the BEST brownies recipe because it is fully loaded with chocolate!!! Not butter and sugar!!!

Then, I found that the Chocolate Cranberry Brownies at here is also fully loaded with chocolate and very similar to the BEST Chocolate Brownies at here.

However, I'm constantly inquisitive! I asked myself... Is 280g chocolate the maximum amount of chocolate I can load in one 20 cm square brownies?

With this question constantly in my mind, I came across a brownies recipe from the book, Great coffee cakes, sticky buns, muffins and more by Carole Walter. Although the original recipe by Carole Walter doesn't contain more than 280g chocolate in one 20 cm square brownies, I see that I can change the recipe to fit in at least 360g chocolate in one 20 cm square brownies!!!

And I called this brownies the ULTIMATE Chocolate-loaded Super-chocolaty Chocolate Brownies!!! ... that is also known as THE ULTIMATE Chocoholic Chocolate Brownies!!! LOL!!!

Image. This 20 cm square brownies is loaded with 360g 70% cocoa dark chocolate!!! Real ultimate and unbeatable, huh?

Proudly introducing... my Ultimate Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies!!!
Nothing can't any more chocolate than these!!!

How did I load this maximum amount of chocolate into the brownies?

In order to gel this massive amount of chocolate together, I will need incorporate more flour and butter!!!

Although this chocolate-loaded brownies is super chocolaty and rich, it is not sweet and not made with the highest amount of sugar and butter added.

To illustrate further, I have summarized my brownies baking experience and you will see  that many rich brownies recipes are actually loaded with sugar, not chocolate!

THIS ULTIMATE brownies recipe contains 360g dark chocolate, 150g unsalted butter, 150g dark brown sugar and 115g flour - 

The BEST brownies recipe at here contains 270g dark chocolate, 75g unsalted butter, 130g sugar (50:50 caster:brown) and 55g flour -

My son loves loves loves these super chocolaty brownies but I was feeling bad that my son was eating so many of these brownies. I had to give some of these brownies to my husband's colleagues and my son was angry with me subsequently. Hmmm...

We all know that baking brownies is so easy. The most important thing is not to over-mix or over-bake the brownies! However, if you are not sure, you can watch my video to see how I baked these brownies.

Here's the recipe.

Makes one 20 cm square brownies
150g unsalted butter
180g dark chocolate with 70% cocoa - I'm using Callebaut dark chocolate callets with 70% cocoa.
150g (3/4 cup) dark brown sugar*
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
115g plain /all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
180g dark chocolate chips - I'm using Callebaut dark chocolate callets with 70% cocoa.

*This reduced amount of sugar will make this brownies rather bittersweet. If you prefer the brownies to be sweeter, you can increase the amount to 200g.

Preheat oven at 160°C / 325°F. Line one 20 cm / 8 inches square with baking paper with 5 cm of excess baking paper overhang the edge of the pan.

Place butter and 180g chocolate in a large heatproof bowl. Melt and stir chocolate mixture by using a microwave, pulsing with low power or placing the heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stop heating immediately when the chocolate are just melted as over-heating can cause the chocolate and butter to separate. Mixture should be thick, smooth and shiny. Set aside to cool slightly.

Use a spatula to mix in sugar, eggs and vanilla and it's ok if the mixture is a little grainy with small amount of undissolved sugar. Add chocolate mixture and mix until combined.

Sift flour, salt and baking powder into the mixture and mix gently until just combined. Do not over-mix. Gently fold in 180g dark chocolate chips - no chocolate chunks, please!

Scrape batter into the prepared pan. Use a spatula to smoothed the top and tap the pan gently for the batter to spread out evenly.

Bake at 160°C for 25 mins or until the top is set but still soft in the center. Do not over-bake brownies! Allow brownies to cool in the pan for about 15 mins or more if you are living in a warm place or until it is firm enough to remove. Do not chill the brownies in a fridge!!!

Slice and serve.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 day and in a freezer for up to one month.

Happy Baking
