Supernatural Fudge Brownies

You know when you eat something amazing, and you get excited because it has completely revolutionized the way you think about that particular food? These brownies did that to me. You see, as much as I love chocolate, I always find brownies somewhat disappointing. I mean, they’re delicious and everything, but they just don’t compare to a chocolat fondant or a chocolate birthday cake with rich frosting.

I always read about brownies having the ‘thin flaky top’ and ‘gooey centre’, but I never really found the tops that flaky and the centers that gooey. Turns out I was using the wrong recipe all this time, because this recipe literally has all the amazing qualities of a delicious brownie: rich but not too sweet, decadent, gooey, flaky top, and above everything, full of chocolate.

Supernatural Fudge Brownies


  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9×13-inch pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a double broiler until melted. Once it is almost all melted, remove from heat immediately. It will continue melting while you move onto the next step.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and incorporate the sugars. Add vanilla and salt, mix well.
  4. Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture, mix, then carefully fold in the flour. Try to fold as little as possible- you want the flour just combined.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, and allow to cool completely for a couple hours before cutting. It’s okay if they are still slightly undercooked in the middle once you take them out of the oven, because they will solidify as they cool down. It’s best if you let it cool overnight!
