Rich Decadent Cocoa Brownies by @DonnaFaz #SweetRomance

I somehow ended up with 3 open containers of cocoa in my pantry and I was looking for a recipe to use up some of it. I found a brownie recipe at that looked interesting and I did a little fiddling. (I’ll bet you’re not surprised.) The result is rich, decadent cocoa brownies that will satisfy anyone’s chocolate craving.

Rich, Decadent Cocoa Brownies

10 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1.      Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2.    In a bowl, stir together the melted butter, the white and brown sugars, and the cocoa. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each addition until eggs are well incorporated. Stir in the vanilla and salt.
3.    Add flour and stir just until the flour is incorporated. Do not over beat. Stir in walnuts. Batter will thick.
4.    Spread batter evenly in prepared 8 inch square baking pan and bake for approximately 30 to 35 minutes.

These brownies have an intense chocolate flavor. As you can see in the picture, I’ve drizzled my brownies with store bought caramel sauce, but these brownies would also be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. (They’re also delicious all on their own. Just ask my husband, who got up in the middle of the night for several more chocolaty, delectable squares.) 

I’m having an August 99¢ Sale!

  4. Sound so delicious. I love chocolate.

  5. Dang, I am out of eggs! I used the last of my over-ripe bananas, as a substitute for eggs, in a spice cake. They worked well, btw. I need to go grocery shopping. My car has been in the shop for over two weeks now, cause fender-bender. Hubby keeps putting off taking me.

  6. Thanks for the recipe, Donna! I'm a die-hard chocolate fan.

  7. My mouth is watering! Thank you for another way to satisfy my chocolate craving.
