16 brownies


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, plus additional for greasing pan

  • cup cocoa powder

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 8x8-inch metal baking dish with butter.

  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Whisk in cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir in eggs, 1 at a time until incorporated. Add flour and stir until just combined. Scrape mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for at least 45 minutes before cutting.

Cook's Notes:

There isn't salt in the original TikTok "recipe," but we suggest adding ¼ teaspoon kosher salt when you stir in the cocoa powder.

Use the paper butter wrapper to coat the pan! Usually there's a bit of butter stuck to it that's perfect for this purpose!
