  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Mix in the eggs. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans if using. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan and the top appears dry, 35 to 40 minutes.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These were okay. Like another reviewer said I have had better brownies from a mix. The batter was delicious though. Read More

This was a wonderful brownie gooey in the middle and crunchy around the edges. I used a 9x13 pan and I am so glad I didn't double the recipe it was still pretty thick. I used 3/4c pecans and 1c chocolate chips. I cooked it for about 45 minutes when the top cracked it was perfectly done. My friends and I all raved about these brownies. I will definitely make them again. Read More

These are the best brownies I have ever made - very moist chewy and "fudgy". I live at 10 500 feet and they turned out great at 38 minutes. Read More

I live in Quito which is 9895 ft above sea level. Brownies are one of the most difficult treats to make here. But these passed the test. Not only against the altitude but with all of my High School Home Ec students. Thank you for contributing this recipe! Read More

Oh my goodness I made these the other nite & I live near Boulder CO and have always had difficulty perfecting the art of baking at high altitudes however this recipe has converted me for sure!! I did follow the recipe exactly though used semi-sweet mini chocolate chips instead of the regular and the brownies disappeared within a matter of days at our house next time I might try dusting some powdered sugar very lightly on top these are sublime and to me taste extremely similar if not better than those of a local bakery called Breadworks that is known for its exquisite brownies now I can indulge at home as these are very inexpensive to make & amazing!! A!! Thank you!!! Read More

Mile High Excellence! As directed I made 12 cupcake brownies. Filled about 3/4 of cupcake tin with batter. Covered with chocolate icing. Moist delicious and only a slight sink in the center. Notes - Allow melted butter to cool before adding the rest of the wetmix. Preheated oven to 400 then turned to 350 after putting in pan. Ovens drop temp quickly (50deg./10 sec.) with the door open. Do not open oven door while baking. Loss of heat pressure will cause collapse. -- Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I live at 8 228 feet and have all but given up on baking. That being said I have made these brownies 3 times with rave reviews. It's so nice seeing these come out of the oven without a big crater in the middle. They are super fudgy and chewy with that nice crackled top I adore. Not only that they are easy to whip up if you need to bring something to a party. Read More
