Ultimate Brownies are ultra thick, fudgy, chewy, and chocolaty with a crackled crust on top. It took over 6 batches to get this recipe JUST right!

Yield: 9 large brownies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook: 35 minutes

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Ultra chocolaty. I think a lot of us enjoy the texture of box mix brownies, but they typically have an utter lack of wonderful chocolate flavor. This recipe uses a combination of semisweet chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate to give you a knockout punch of chocolaty goodness.
Texture: The best part. These brownies are thick, fudgy, and chewy. They are ultra moist without feeling heavy and underbaked. They have that perfect crinkly crust on top which I’m completely obsessed with. They are perfect to me!
Ease: There are definitely easier brownie recipes out there, however the ULTIMATE brownie takes a bit of extra work. You can still get these in your mouth within an hour but you’ll be melting chocolate and whipping eggs and sugar in an electric mixer. It’s all worth it!
Appearance: Ultra thick with a crackled crust on top!
Pros: Brownie perfection. At least I think so.
Cons: With the exception of a few dirty dishes, there aren’t many bad things about this recipe.
Would I make this again? Uh, yeah. Duh.

I’ve shared a LOT of brownie recipes throughout the years. Not to mention my Ultimate Brownie Guide.

9 squares of the best fudgy Ultimate Brownies!

If you couldn’t tell, I really love brownies from scratch. I love them because they satisfy my chocolate craving and are the perfect amalgamation of cake, cookie, and fudge.

There are a LOT of brownie recipes in the archives. They all meet different texture and taste cravings.

This recipe? It’s the definition of FUDGY. As dense, rich, and fudgy as a brownie could be without actually being candy.

It only took 6 batches to perfect. Yes, 6 batches. That’s how much I love brownies and love you guys!! I want to give you the ultimate version of my favorite goodies because I’m here to make your life more delicious.

How to Make the Ultimate FUDGY Brownies

Let me explain the madness behind this brownie recipe. You can skip this if you don’t care WHY these brownies are the way they are and you just want them in your mouth like, now.

What kind of chocolate is best in brownies?

With fudgy brownies, melted chocolate is key. If we add cocoa powder to this recipe they become more cakey or chewy instead of rich and dense.

In this recipe there are two types of chocolate: semisweet chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate. They’re melted together with the butter to form the base of this recipe.

I find it gives the perfect balance of chocolate flavor without tasting too bitter or intense. Plus the chocolate chips play a secret role… they help to form that brownie crust on top!

Be sure to let the melted chocolate cool slightly before adding it to the batter, you don’t want to scramble your eggs with molten hot chocolate.

Butter for Brownies

The recipe takes 1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (6 ounces, 170 grams, or 12 tablespoons) and melts it down with the chocolate. This helps prevent the chocolate from seizing if melted by itself, and allows the ingredients to become homogenized.

To make these brownies ultra thick and tall, we’re basically baking a 9×13-inch pan worth of batter in an 8×8-inch pan. That’s why there seems to be so much butter.

The reason we melt butter in brownie recipes instead of beating room temperature butter with sugar is because that helps give a rich, chewy, fudgy texture. Beating butter incorporates air and gives a more light, airy, cakey texture which we don’t want in a brownie. Well, you might want that but I don’t!

I actually recently experimented with Butter vs. Oil in Brownies to see how the type of fat used affects the final result. Check out my Butter vs. Oil in Baking article for a full breakdown on each of these fats and how they affect tenderness, flavor, and texture in baked goods (and not just brownies). You might just understand why I opted to only use butter in these Fudgy Brownies!

Can I use salted butter instead?

Yes, just omit the salt called for in the recipe.

How much sugar in brownies?

1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar is called for in this recipe. Again, if this seems like a lot that’s because these are very tall brownies so there is a lot of batter. Also, we’re using a large amount of unsweetened chocolate so we need to sweeten the brownies up a little.

Important to note: the sugar doesn’t just provide sweetness, it also affects the texture. Sugar is essential to creating ultra moist and rich brownies. If you reduce the sugar, the brownies become more dry and cakey.

How to get brownies with that crackled crust on top?

In this recipe we whip the eggs with the sugar.

That’s right, we use an electric mixer to beat the sugar with the eggs for three whole minutes until the mixture is light and ribbon-thick. Why? This ensures the sugar is dissolved into the batter, enabling a soft yet fudgy texture and crackly crust. I learned this technique from this brownie recipe. More tips for achieving those perfectly crinkly crusts in my How to Make Brownies with Shiny, Thin Crust article. Lots of shocking side-by-side comparisons included, like this one below:

overhead shot of chewy brownies, no chocolate chip brownies, powdered sugar brownies, and cooled butter brownies

Note: the amount of time it takes for your mixer to beat the eggs and sugar will vary. You’re looking for the mixture to become lightened in color and really thick. This can take anywhere from 3 to 8 minutes depending on your machine.

Want fudgy brownies? Add an extra egg yolk!

As you may know, eggs not only act as a binding agent in baked goods but they also add structure, richness, and enhance texture. This recipe calls for three whole eggs plus one egg yolk. Why the yolk?

The fat in the yolk creates a rich, moist, fudgy, chewy texture that just melts in your mouth. I love adding an egg yolk to my cookie recipes too to get them really chewy. Try it!! Also be sure to use large eggs. I was so pleased when I discovered I was able to add an egg yolk and STILL get that tissue-thin crust on top. Beating the eggs and sugar is pretty magical.

Which flour to use for brownies?

All-purpose flour is the way to go here. Cake flour makes these brownies way too tender and light. To make chewy fudgy brownies, we only need to use a little bit of flour. Any more flour will create tougher or cakier brownies.

If you want to be super accurate and weigh your flour, which I highly recommend, 3/4 cup equals 94 grams or 3.3 ounces. Otherwise be sure to use the spoon and level method to measure your flour to avoid dry brownies.

IMPORTANT: How to tell when brownies are done baking?

Bake these brownies in a 350°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes. There will absolutely be moist crumbs attached to a tester by the end of the baking time. That’s what we want. The brownies will continue to set as they cool. This recipe must be served after they’ve cooled to room temperature completely. In fact, they solidify into even more fudgy brownie bits if you chill in the fridge before slicing and serving.

If you prefer less rich and gooey brownies, add 5 to 10 minutes to the baking time.

Use a METAL PAN for this recipe!!

Glass and ceramic pans will not work for this recipe. They take longer to heat up and will prevent the center of the brownies from cooking before the outside edges are too hard. You’ll be left with gooey gummy brownies instead of perfectly fudgy brownies. This is my favorite pan to use for brownies.

Learn more in my Glass vs. Metal Baking Pans article.

How to cut brownies perfectly:

Science has shown our visual perception of food actually influences how tasty we perceive food to be. If you want to get perfectly clean, neat, and even brownie slices, check out my How to Cut Brownies Cleanly in 5 Steps article. Don’t worry – even if you don’t follow all these tips, your brownies will taste just as delicious.

How to store brownies:

The brownies definitely taste best the day they are baked, but can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature or up to 4 days in the fridge. They are even more fudgy when they’re chilled.


This brownie recipe is written exactly the way it is for very specific reasons, as noted in the explanations above. If you try to reduce the sugar, use a sugar substitute, use a butter substitute, or make this recipe vegan the results will NOT be the same. Feel free to add in nuts, chocolate chips, toffee bits, or anything else to the batter.

How to make
Ultimate Fudgy Brownies

Yield: 9 large brownies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Ultimate Brownies are ultra thick, fudgy, chewy, and chocolaty with a crackled crust on top. It took over 6 batches to get this recipe JUST right!


  • 1 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces (113 grams) high quality unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 sticks (170 grams) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 3 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (94 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8-inch metal baking pan with foil or parchment and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Do NOT use glass or ceramic baking pans for this recipe, they will not allow the brownies to cook through the center.

  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate, and butter. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Continue heating in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until the mixture is melted and smooth but not scorched. Remove from the microwave and let cool slightly.

  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs, egg yolk, and sugar on medium-high speed until light and thick and ribbony, about 3 to 5 minutes or more depending on your mixer. Beat in the vanilla extract.

  4. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir in the cooled chocolate butter mixture. Gently fold in the flour and salt until combined.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake until a tester comes out with moist crumbs still attached, about 35 to 40 minutes. Do not overbake the brownies as they will continue to bake once they’re out of the oven.

  6. Let cool completely to room temperature before slicing. Serve at room temperature or chilled for an even fudgier texture.

    Very rich. A little more challenging to make. The are much lighter in texture than most brownies.

    Yum! For some reason, the first time I made this, they turned out really dry. However, this time they were excellent! I’ve been weighing my ingredients lately with excellent results. These did NOT let me down!! They were so delicious! I loved the fudgy texture.

    Wow! This was so freakin amazing, and really easy too! I baked mine for 40 minutes and was worried when the top totally sank/caved, but I think that’s normal? It was so delicious, my fiancé went back for seconds and thirds (I cut them into 16 squares).

    Decadent! I thought they were done at 35 minutes, but should have left them in for 40 minutes. Although, they were sort of a lava brownie, which is truly not a bad thing! Really delicious!

    • #
      Tessa — May 27, 2021 at 9:14 am

      Oh no, they definitely shouldn’t be like lava! What type of pan did you use, Becky? Also, do you have an oven thermometer?

      • #
        Becky L Rudella — May 28, 2021 at 7:43 pm

        I just saw your comment and question about my oven thermometer, Tessa, and I noticed that only two stars were marked. Ugh! I had every intention of rating these brownies with 5 stars! Even though my toothpick test seemed like they were done at 35 minutes, I really knew they should have continued to bake for 40 minutes. They didn’t completely implode like lava, they were just not firm. However, they were absolutely delicious and probably beat out the chewy brownies – not sure . . . it was a close competition. I strongly recommend this recipe to chocolate connoisseurs!

        • #
          Tessa — June 1, 2021 at 3:46 pm

          Phew! I’m so glad that was an error haha! I’m sure if you baked them a bit longer, they would have been perfect 🙂 So happy they still tasted delicious!

    The Ultimate fudgy brownie was really sweet, stickier and more fragile than the chewy brownie recipe that I made for this challenge. My family loved both recipes but personally the chewy brownie is my favourite. The crackly crust in this brownie was too crumbly that it was hard to hold in your hand and eat without leaving crumbs everywhere. The chewy brownie is going to be my go to recipe. My family will be happy to whichever I make.

    • #
      Tessa — May 26, 2021 at 8:53 am

      These are definitely more fudgy and richer than the chewy brownies! I’m sorry your crust was super crumbly! I wonder if maybe your brownies were slightly overbaked? So glad you joined this month’s challenge and tried both recipes!

    These brownies are very moist! I used half cup semi-sweet and 1/2 milk chocolate morsels so the brownies weren’t as rich. They turned out delicious and I’d definitely make them again perhaps even trying different morsels.

    These are my go-to melted chocolate style brownie! I love how thick and fudgy they are and they have such a rich chocolatey taste. I’ve tried lining the pan with both (ungreased) parchment and (greased) foil and I find the parchment much easier to deal with after they’re baked. This recipe is a keeper for sure!

    • #
      Tessa — May 25, 2021 at 9:20 am

      So happy these are your go-to! Parchment or aluminum foil is completely fine, I’d spray the parchment next time for even more ease, but I’m glad you’re using what works best for you! 🙂

    You don’t know how much you need to have your favorite vanilla ice cream in the freezer until you bake these brownies. Oh my. Dare to cut these while they are still warm and gushy with a perfect scoop of ice cream on top! :-).

    If you’re looking for a perfect brownie to cut and bring to a party these are not them…try the Chewy Brownie recipe. Those are really good too!

    It’s really hard to find the perfect FUDGY brownie recipe for my very-humid country… And this one is still a no for me….. :'( After succeeded with Tessa’s chewy brownie recipe, I’d like to give this a try.

    It turns out that the outside of the brownie looks good, but the inside is still raw; like eating melted chocolate. I measured all the ingredient with kitchen scale, use the oven thermometer, even added the baking time to 1 hour total, the inside is still very raw. I guess it has to do with the very humid condition of my country, so I’m thinking of adding a few tbsp of flour/cocoa powder in my next try; to dry out those runny chocolate in the middle.

    I love the unique process of making these brownies. 100% best texture when cooled in the fridge. Very rich and satisfying. Fun to make 🙂

    An ode to my pants:
    I’ll never fit into you again, because of these. AND REGRET NOTHING.
    Holy momma. BEST EVER. I’m usually on team chewy when it comes to brownies, but I might be a covert.

    So, I haven’t really found a recipe I don’t like from Handle the Heat, including multiple different brownie recipes. That said, I think this Brownie recipe is THE best mix of textures ever in a brownie. The crinkle top is fantastic, and the fudginess of the brownies themselves is just amazing. Very well done!!
