Dark & Chewy Brownies

Chewy brownies

I’ve been working on brownie recipes for decades, and I’m done! This is hands down the best brownie recipe ever. It’s chewy, it’s chocolatey, it’s rich, and it’s delicious. Use the best cocoa and chocolate chips you can. I highly recommend Ghirardelli. Dutch process is best in this recipe. I prefer dark chocolate chips for the deeper chocolate flavor, but you can also use semi sweet. Espresso powder enhances chocolate, but if you’re opposed, you can leave it out. The secret ingredient here? Cornstarch. It acts as a binder, retaining moisture and intensifying the chewiness.
