    About this recipe: It's fudgy, chewy and delicious! I was looking for the ultimate brownies and have tried many recipes. I've also tried brownies bought from the shop. Neither really satisfied me. I wanted a brownie that is chewy, not crumbly. After trying many different recipes and techniques, I finally came up with one. Try it! If you are diabetic, there are sugar-free chocolates available at some supermarkets and you may use Isomalt as substitute for sugar but in very small amounts.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 225g butter, melted
    • 400g of brown sugar (or more depending on your taste)
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 4 eggs
    • 225g plain flour
    • 140g unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 125g mini chocolate chips (has to be mini)

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. First, preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease and flour a 23x30cm baking tin.
    2. Next, beat butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time.
    3. Sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder and add it to the mixture. Beat it slowly until flour mixture and butter mixture are incorporated, add chocolate chips then mix again.
    4. Pour it into the baking tin and bake it for 20 minutes or until a skewer poked into the centre comes out clean. Don't mistake melted chocolate chip from the batter. The skewer has to have a bit of chocolate stuck to it. But if it's a lot of chocolate stuck, then it's not ready yet.
    5. Let it cool. The brownie will be crumbly if you eat it right away. Let it cool and it will be chewy and not crumbly. Patience is a virtue.

    This is the best chewy chocolate brownie recipe ever! I didn't have brown sugar so used 200g white sugar and 200g icing sugar and this made them extra chewy. I also broke up pieces of a chocolate bar instead of chocolate chips. This made them even more chocolatey and delicious! - 16 Jul 2012

    you know when someone tells you something is going to be amazing and it leaves you worried that if you try it then you might be disappointed? Well, seriously - don't worry this truly is awesome. I used chopped up dark chocolate instead of choc chips and reduced the sugar to 300g and this was unbelievably yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 24 Sep 2011
