Blackout Brownies

The fudgiest, darkest, thickest brownies out there! This rich blackout brownies recipe have fudgy middles, crinkly tops and all the chocolate you’ll ever need.

The most awaited recipe on the blog is finally here! I’ve been testing it for a while before I shared it with you, so here it is! The best ever blackout brownies. I almost wanted to call it blackout cake, they have that fudginess in the middle and that crinkly top that we all love in brownies.

Blackout brownies are similar to regular brownies, except they have a much richer chocolate taste. I’ve been on a Special Dark Cocoa Powder trend lately (you can see here) and for good reason! As you know I’m a huge chocolate foodie and that extra richness and dense texture just makes my heart extra happy.

How to make brownies from scratch

This recipe is perfect for those that love quick one-bowl recipes. And, there’s a great chance you already have these ingredients at home. I chose to make them dairy free by swapping butter for coconut oil. If you don’t have coconut oil at home, I believe any vegetable oil would do as long as they’re taste is very mild.

The best cocoa powder to use is Hershey’s Special Dark, it’s honestly the best one I’ve found that’s available at major grocery stores. For chocolate chips I always recommend Enjoy Life because they have cleaner ingredients, but you can use what you have!

Make sure your ingredients are all room temperature, especially the melted coconut so that they don’t mess with your eggs. Other than that, it’s a pretty straight forward, no fuss recipe!
