  • cup all-purpose flour* (82.5 grams)
  • cup unsalted butter (75 grams) in 4-6 pieces for easier melting
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate* (112 grams) finely chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons milk (45 ml) or cream
  • cup cocoa powder (30 grams)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


Heat Treat the Flour

  • In the Oven: Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Sprinkle the flour on top. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes. If it looks burnt or smells burnt, do not use it.
  • In the Microwave: Add the flour to a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute on 75% power, then remove from the oven and stir. Microwave again for 1 minute, or until it reaches 165F on a thermometer.

Make the Brownie Batter

  • Add the butter and finely chopped chocolate to a heatproof bowl.
  • Microwave for 45-second intervals on medium power, stirring between each interval, until smooth.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat in the sugar and vanilla extract. Beat for 2 minutes.
  • Beat in the milk.
  • Sift the flour and cocoa powder (if they're lumpy), then stir in the flour, cocoa and salt.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.


  1. Heat treating the flour is absolutely necessary. Raw flour can contain harmful bacteria, such as E.coli.
  2. I used 50% dark chocolate. Anything between 50-70% works well, or semi-sweet chocolate. 
  3. Mini chocolate chips can left out, substituted with regular chocolate chips, sprinkles, mini M&Ms or whatever you prefer. 
  4. Store brownie batter in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  5. Nutrition information is an estimate only and based on the recipe being divided into 8 equal servings.
