Key Ingredients

Before you make these amazing brownies you want to make sure you have everything you need.

  • Unsweetened Chocolate: This is 100% cocoa which means it’s pure chocolate with no added sugar it the best chocolate for brownies.
  • Brown Sugar: Using brown sugar helps make these brownies chewy and fudgy. Plus the molasses in brown sugar works well with chocolate.
  • Cocoa Powder: Another layer of chocolate never hurt nobody. This will reduce the amount of flour needed in the recipe but also add depth of flavor.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate: This will add a nice treat as you bite into these amazing brownies. Feel free to use milk chocolate or dark chocolate as a swap.
  • Pecans: I don’t think its a brownie if they don’t have nuts in them so pecans is a staple in any brownie recipe. Feel free to use walnuts as a swap.

How do you make triple chocolate brownies?

Here’s how you whip up these incredible brownies.

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place foil or parchment paper in an 8 x 8 pan; foil should hang over slightly. 

2. In a bowl, add unsweetened chocolate and butter, cook in the microwave for 1 minute, stir to combine. 

3. In a bowl, mix eggs and brown sugar on low speed with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Pour in melted chocolate and vanilla, mix until combined.

4. In a small bowl, stir flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt, pour into batter and mix on low speed for 30 seconds until flour is combined. Add in 2/3 of pecans, 2/3 chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons of heath toffee bits, mix for 15 seconds. Avoid over mixing. Pour the batter in the pan, spread out evenly, sprinkle the remaining pecans, chocolate chips, and heath chocolate toffee bits over the batter. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes until a small crumb is left on a toothpick. Remember there are chocolate chips in the batter; the toothpick will come out with some chocolate on it. 

5. When brownies are finished baking, cool for 10 minutes before lifting out of the pan and cutting.

What happens if I overmix the batter?

Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing adds too much air to the triple chocolate brownies and will give them a cakey texture. That’s fine but today we’re making the perfect blend of fudgy and cakey brownies.

What happens if I overbake the brownies?

Don’t overbake the brownies. Fudgy brownies are slightly under baked. When you remove the triple chocolate brownies from the oven the edges will have begun to pull away from the sides and the center will be gooey.

What’s the best way to cut brownies?

Cool before cutting. Actually, the best way to get a clean cut is to place the triple chocolate brownies in the freezer for 15 minutes after they cool. However, cooling for 10 minutes at room temperature will still do the job.

What makes brownies fudgy?

Fudgy brownies have more fat to flour than cakey brownies. Fudgy brownies will have more butter and chocolate in the recipe. Cakey brownies will have more flour to fat and will have the baking powder to help the brownies rise.
