  • saucepan
  • wooden spoon
  • whisk
  • large bowl
  • medium bowl
  • 9×9 inch (23 x 23 cm) baking pan
  • parchment paper


  • ¾ cup (175 ml) unsalted butter
  • 1 2/3 cup (390 ml) granulated white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (125 ml) milk
  • 1 ½ cups (375 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 ml) cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 1 cup (250 ml) semisweet chocolate chips
  • Optional: ½ cup (125 ml) walnuts or pecans for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 9 x 9 inch  (23 x 23 cm) baking dish with parchment and set it aside. 
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl and set it aside. 
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once boiling, add the sugar and stir with a wooden spoon. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir to combine. The mixture will be very thick – it is okay if it is not fully incorporated. 
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Add the milk and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Add the milk mixture to the flour-butter mixture and whisk all ingredients well. You will get a thick and glossy batter. 
  5. Add the chocolate chips and stir to incorporate. 
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and top with nuts. 
  7. Bake for 35 minutes. When done, the edges will appear cooked through and the middle set. Allow brownies to cool and set for 20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
