  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick, 113 grams), cubed
  • 3 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate (85 grams), chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (90 grams)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Optional add-ins: 1 cup chocolate chips (170 grams), nuts, candy pieces (113 grams)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square pan or line with parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan over low heat, combine the chocolate and butter. Heat until melted, stirring often.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sugar. Beat by hand for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in vanilla.
  • Add flour and salt and mix just until incorporated. Stir in the chips or other mix-ins, if using.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely for at least an hour before cutting into squares.
