Brownie Crisp

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Crisp and intense, the best part of the brownie! You can add a multitude of toppings such as salt, caramel, chocolate chips (mini), nuts, sprinkles, etc. You may as well double the recipe because they disappear fast."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and espresso powder together in a bowl; beat in egg whites. Stir flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Mix flour mixture into egg mixture until batter is combined. Spread batter as thin as a slice of American cheese onto the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until batter is nearly cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven; cut a shallow square pattern into the batter with a sharp knife. Place back into the oven; bake until batter is crisp, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely; break into squares.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you under-bake them, or spread them too thick, they will have a chewiness rather than crispness.
  • Alternately, you can bake for 25 minutes; cool on baking sheet and break into pieces.
