- To melt chocolate on stove-top, place chocolate in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

- Reduce baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

- To prepare brownies in 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

These brownies took almost 40 min to cook until they were set up enough. They were pretty bland as well, not nearly as chocolaty as I would have liked. The texture also wasn't great. They came out very spongy and unlike any brownie texture I've ever had. I wouldn't make these again. There are much better recipes out there.

Hi Jenni, Sorry to hear the brownies didn't turn out for you. This recipe is a bit more cakey than other fudgy brownie recipes. if you'd like a fudgy recipe, I'd suggest trying our Big Batch Fudgy Brownies. Hope this helps!

This took about 32 Minutes to cook and was just okay. It wasn't very chocolatey and the chocolate chips sunk down to the bottom of the pan instead of staying mixed throughout it. I probably won't make it again and just look for another cakey recipe.
