These dark chocolate brownies are super thick, chewy, gooey, moist and rich with chocolate flavor. Using dark cocoa powder is optional, but adds a deeper chocolate flavor then classic cocoa. Additionally, a few tablespoons of fresh brewed coffee, takes it to the next level. If you are a chocolate lover like me, then these are for you. Eating these reminded me of the scene from the movie "Bridesmaids" where they are at a restaurant eating chocolate cake and Lillian (Maya Rudolph) says " I don't need dental work!" showing a gob of chocolate covering her tooth giving the appearance that one is suddenly missing. I'm not gunna lie, I try to replicate this scene all the time. I hope you enjoy these drool worthy brownies as much as I did.

Thick Brownie Batter, Pre and Post Bake

- Preheat your oven to 350F.

- Spray and line with parchment paper an 8 X 8 baking pan. (do not use a pan larger then this or they may end up over baking) - Whisk together your dry ingredients and set aside.

- In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.

- Combine the wet and dry ingredients together, just until blended. Will be very thick. (do not over mix) - Pour into your prepared baking dish. Spread evenly in the dish using a spatula, then bake for 40 to 50 Minutes.

- You know it is done when the brownies start to pull away from the sides of the dish.


- Insert a toothpick and when it comes out with a few crumbs attached, it is ready. (Because brownies are sticky and moist, the tooth pick will not come out clean. If it does you have over baked them).

- Allow to cool in the baking dish for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely before cutting.
