There’s nothing better than a fudgy brownie….except maybe a fudgy brownie made with double the chocolate! Two kinds of chocolate! These brownies have unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder for twice the deliciousness. 

Brownies are one of my favorite desserts to make. They are quick to make and satisfy any chocolate craving that I might have! These One Bowl Fudgy Brownies are delicious!

What ingredients do I need for One Bowl Fudgy Brownies?

  • Unsweetened chocolate
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

How do I make these brownies?

  • Place butter and unsweetened chocolate in a bowl. 
  • Microwave until chocolate is melted.
  • Add sugar and allow mixture to cool.
  • Stir in eggs and vanilla.

These brownies are made with unsweetened chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder. Two kinds of chocolate. One bowl. A perfect brownie! The hardest part about these brownies…waiting until they cool!

If you cut them while they are warm they won’t hold their shape and they will be really gooey. Another brownies recipe I have are these delicious raspberry brownies!

    Fudgy brownies are everything for me. I have to enjoy one and give the rest away (aka – get them out of the house) or I will eat the whole pan! These look heavenly and sinful all at the same time, if thats possible, lol. Take care.
