These mouth-watering squares of brownie goodness are sure to hit the spot.

The recipe for these delicious fudgy brownies comes from Tom, a chef working at a chalet we rented a few winters ago in Argentiere, France.  Tom was a miracle worker.  We had eight kids in our group, and he was able to get them all not only to eat pasta with a mushroom sauce, but had them coming back for seconds!  He was kind enough to share his brownie recipe with me.  To tell you the truth, he didn’t have much choice.  I was swooning in the kitchen over them and wouldn’t leave until I knew the secret.  These brownies can be whipped up in a matter of minutes, so enjoy!

Tom's Scrumpalicious Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 50-55 mins
Yields: 18


  • 1 1/4 cup butter (2 1/2 sticks or 250g)
  • 11 oz. chocolate (300g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar (450g)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (200g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate or toffee bits (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F/fan (180°C/fan). Butter and flour a large baking dish (9x13 inches), or as I prefer, just line it with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate together, stirring constantly.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together, then add the vanilla extract.
  4. Add the chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Add the flour and salt and mix until just smooth. Poor into the baking dish and sprinkle with toffee or white chocolate, if desired.
  6. Bake about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Be sure not to overcook!


A note on the chocolate. I used 60% cocoa for this recipe, but feel free to use whatever you prefer. For melting, I use a makeshift double boiler. I place a metal bowl with the chocolate and butter over a pan of boiling water and stir constantly. Alternatively, you can use a microwave to melt the chocolate and butter together. The key is not to burn the chocolate, which happens rather quickly. Always take the ingredients off the heat before all the chocolate is melted and keep stirring. The chocolate melts from the residual heat.
