  • Oven
  • Bowl
  • 8 x 8 inch baking dish
  • parchment paper


  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I prefer and use the Hershey's Dark Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 stick salted butter melted and hot to the touch
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar light or dark
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks I get the milk chocolate block from Trader Joe's and cut my own chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Place flour, cocoa powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, stir to combine. Place hot melted butter, oil, and sugars into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined, a good minute. Stir in eggs and vanilla, whisking another 2 minutes. Slowly stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl, gently stirring just until batter forms. Fold in chocolate chunks and transfer to baking dish. Spread evenly and bake for 22-26 minutes, until mostly baked through. If you want gooey brownies, remove at 22 or 23 minutes. Let bake longer for a more cooked brownie. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares. Serve room temperature or warmed with a scoop of ice cream.


  • For gooey brownies, remove from oven at 22-26 minutes of baking. For a more cooked brownie, remove at about 30 minutes. 
  • Top brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce too!
