Bakery Style Chewy Brownies

adapted from Making Life Delicious
Chewy, yummy brownies--somewhere between fudgy and cakey, and absolutely perfect!
Servings 12


  • 1 cup 16 Tbsp Kerrygold butter, cut into 16 pieces
  • 5 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped (I used Ghirardelli, which is 60% cacao)
  • 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate chopped (I used Trader Joe's)
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup toasted chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with coconut oil or butter and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat the butter, bittersweet, and unsweetened baking chocolate at 50% power for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is all melted. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the eggs, sugars, and vanilla extract. Beat at medium speed for 3-5 minutes, or until lifting the paddle from the bowl produces ribbons.
  • On low speed, beat in the slightly cooled melted chocolate.
  • Add the salt and flour, mixing only until just combined.
  • Remove bowl from mixer and gently fold in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Spread into the prepared baking dish and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out slightly moist.
  • Cool for at least a half hour (preferably completely) before slicing and serving.


*To toast the walnuts, spread them on a baking sheet and pop them in the preheated oven while you're working on the other preparations for about 10 minutes, or until you can smell the delicious aroma. Be careful not to burn.
*You can line the baking pan with parchment paper, which will make removing the brownies easier after they've baked. Just make sure to leave enough overhang that you can grip it well and be sure they're fully-cooled before you yank them out.
*If you're impatient, you can pop the brownies in the freezer to cool faster. Frozen brownies, by the way, are actually really easy to cut.
*Brownies can be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or up to 3 months in the freezer.
