Chocolaty Brownies | Recipe

Thursday, May 31, 2018
Last weekend it was a three day weekend and so I decided to use it both wisely (I joined Twitter!) and (unfortunately) unwisely. I read a novel, which felt like I hadn't read forever, I knitted and baked!! I had the munchies for chocolate and sugar for the last couple of days and so I took advantage of the time and decided to make my brownie recipe.

This recipe differs somewhat from others because it does have milk and it is not as solid/hard as other recipes and it has lots of chocolate. It is delicious since I had a solid (1pound!) chocolate bunny from Easter I shredded some to add to the brownies before, during and after.

Besides eating them, the best part was shredding the chocolate. It was like making it rain chocolate! Believe it or not, it did take time to perfect the recipe. At times it was too hard and so I added milk which did help make them softer and spongier. But it came out perfect (well to me).
Here it is...

Chocolaty Brownies


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/cup milk
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2-1/3 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shaved chocolate
    • more for the bottom, top and after serving


  1. Turn oven on to 170℃ (350℉). Grease a deep (not too deep) baking pan, I use a 10" x 8". In a bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a bigger bowl stir the butter, sugar, and vanilla together. Add the eggs, beat well, half the milk. Add in slowly the flour mixture. Blend well. Add the chocolate shavings, mix add the rest of the milk.
  3. In the greased pan add place some chocolate shavings on the bottom and sides, enough to cover it. Add the mixture and spread throughout the pan. Add some more chocolate shavings to the top if desired.

  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until brownies start to move away from the sides of the pan. Cool, add some more chocolate. Cut into squares and bon appetit!
And that is my Chocolaty Brownie recipe. I really hope that it wasn't that hard and that it came out right for you. The chocolate can be replaced with nuts, raisins and more.

What did you think? Did you love it? or was it too chocolaty?

My family loved them and the brownies were gone in like 15 minutes. And it was perfect for me because as a lover of chocolate it was perfect!
Til next time,
a bientôt.
