  • 5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/4 cups Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 lg Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Chocolate Frosting* optional, but awesome!


  • Heat oven to 325° F.
  • Line the bottom of a 8"x8" baking pan with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl (about 25-30 seconds).
  • Add the sugar and stir.
  • Add the oil and cocoa powder. Mix well. Let cool a few minutes if very warm.
  • Whisk in the vanilla and eggs.
  • Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Add the batter to the prepared baking pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until the brownies look set and a knife inserted into the middle comes out with just some moist crumbs. Try not to over bake. It's better to slightly under bake to get that fudgey consistency.
  • Let cool completely, then frost with a chocolate frosting*.


*You can use a store-bought prepared chocolate frosting, or try my Chocolate 1-Minute Icing recipe.
