One Bowl Brownies

I’m a woman obsessed. I have lost count how many times I’ve made these brownies, but it’s at least enough to have run out of cocoa powder. I’m not even sorry. The best part is that these can be made in one bowl with things you’ve probably got in your kitchen. I’m serious, these one bowl brownies will win you over with how easy and delicious they are. I had a sweet tooth early yesterday, so I made a batch really fast.

I’m obsessed with all things candy cane, so I had a lot of fun today icing some donuts with chocolate icing and topping them with crushed candy canes. It was perfection and I’m completely doing it again!

Before I got so sick, I spent hours on Pinterest getting inspired to make holiday recipes. I’ve still got a snickerdoodle recipe, rum balls, and oreo balls to name a few. I got excited when I found several brownie recipes I loved but were either really complicated, took forever to make, or I would have had to buy several ingredients for them.

Because of this, I combined a few of my favorites to create this one. I cannot take all of the credit, obviously, because I just made a hybrid. I just happened to be lucky that it worked out!

These one bowl brownies use regular and dark cocoa powder along with a mix of white and brown sugar to achieve their fudgy taste and texture.

I love super fudgy, kinda thick brownies

I’ve been making these in an 8×8 baking dish, but if you like them thinner and less fudgy, you’ll want to try them in a 9×13 pan instead. I would also suggest lining your dish with parchment paper. Oiling the pan does work, but they are tough to remove.

I recently purchased these fun donut shaped silicone bakeware, so I made a few brownie donuts! They are perfect for brownies topped with ice cream or for taking to parties.

Cuisine: American
Keyword: Dessert, Easy Recipe, One Bowl
Servings: 12 squares
Calories: 379kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil liquid
  • cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder
  • ½ cup cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Oil 9×13 square baking dish or line with parchment paper
  • Add melted butter, sugar, and oil to large mixing bowl, mix well
  • Add vanilla extract and eggs, mix well
  • In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powders and flour, mix well
  • Slowly fold in small amounts of the dry ingredient mixture until it has all been combined equally
  • Optional – Fold in chocolate chunks, nuts, or candy pieces
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and spread out evenly into the baking dish
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center of the brownies is completely set and no longer wiggles when the pan is moved.
    For fudgy brownies, a toothpick inserted in the middle will come out with some amount of batter. If you like them less fudgy and more solid, you can cook them for an extra 5-10 minutes.
    Brownies will keep cooking in the pan once removed. For less fudgy brownies, keep in the oven until only crumbs are on the toothpick.
  • Remove pan and allow to cool until room temp before slicing.
    Chill in the fridge to make slicing easier.

Notes

Brown sugar can be substituted for regular sugar and you can use only one type of cocoa powder if preferred.
