There is something outrageously decadent about making an easy brownie recipe from scratch that you'll never go back to buying box brownie mix ever again. From scratch, brownies can be sometimes tricky to make and usually there is a high expectation from the brownie lovers. When you think of a brownie, everyone will probably describe its texture as chewy and dense which is the only important part about a brownie. To make a perfect batch of dense and fudgy brownies, it's important to follow a few steps such as your oven temperature. Sometimes oven temperature can vary, for instance, it could be 10 to 15 degrees hotter than it shows. Therefore, always ensure to adjust your oven temperature to the right setting. It is perhaps a good idea to invest in a thermometer to be able to set your oven at an accurate temperature. To achieve a moist and chewy texture in brownies, always add an extra egg or two. You can tell if the brownies are done when you notice the sides of the brownie batter shrinking away from the pan. Since brownies tend to harden up too quickly, it is important to watch the baking time. When the brownies are still hot, the center usually tends to be gooey, but it will harden up once cooled. It's ok when an inserted toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs sticking to it. However, if it comes out clean, then that means the brownies are over baked and might harden up once they cool.

For a healthier version, you can use dark chocolate chips in the place of regular ones in this recipe. Dark chocolate is a potent source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health and contains fiber and iron. Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips is a good vegan brand for the chocolate in this recipe. If you want you could add nuts or use white chocolate shavings as a garnish.
