A single bowl and just ten ingredients is all that stands in the way between you and these deliciously decadent One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Brownies.
If you do something to help me or my family out, nine chances out of ten I’m going to find a way to say thank you by making you something in the kitchen. These One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Brownies? (Which by the way, I can’t beliee I’ve never shared before! Sorry!) Last week they were a big, chocolatey thank you to a girlfriend for bringing my two oldest home after school when I was having car drama and was stranded at home with the two littlest. Said friend said she hates me for breaking her diet by giving her a pan of brownies, but I’m pretty sure she’s not angry at me whatsoever.
These are my go-to brownies. The one that I could pretty much recite the recipe for and the one that is made on an almost weekly basis. I swear we never go longer than two weeks without a pan of these brownies. They’re rich, they’re fudgey and those dark chocolate chips on the top? Yep, they’re pretty much the best thing ever.
All you need for brownie prep is one bowl and a whisk and a wooden spoon. You could probably nix the whisk, but it does make combining a few things easier, so I say use it if you’ve got it. And the ingredients? If I’m a betting type of gal, I’d say you’d likely have all the ingredients in your pantry or fridge right this very second. Easy peasy.
Now, before you go scrolling down to the recipe and have your jaw hit your keyboard in disgust that these brownies have coffee in them and you know, you are so not a coffee drinker, give me just a minute to explain. Me? I’m so not a coffee drinker either! Ever. Well, except for that one semester in undergrad when my then boyfriend, now husband, got me hooked on it except that I was putting so much creamer and other things in it that it wasn’t really coffee at all. Instead of drinking coffee, I love to bake with it. It totally brings out the flavor of the chocolate and makes it more intense. And these brownies don’t taste like coffee!
