Chocolate Chip Nut Brownies

I had posted a brownie recipe earlier. You cannot have enough brownie recipes in your repertoire. This is from a recipe book ‘Chocolate’ by Christine McFadden and Christine France. These brownies and gooey and fudgy. Do try! It is a really simple, easy and a quick recipe. I whipped this up in 10 minutes and then into the oven.


  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, chopped into pieces
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF / 180ºC.
  • Lightly grease a shallow square 8-inch pan
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of warm water. (You can also melt it in a microwave, but keep mixing every minute.)
  • Mix oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in the melted chocolate and mix until smooth.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • Fold in and mix thoroughly.
  • Stir in chopped nuts and chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly to the edges
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is firm and crusty.
  • Cool and cut into pieces. Enjoy!

    Hi Preethi

    yes, we all remember your famous brownies and we miss it. What did you apply on the top- topping. Dark chocolate is 90% or 50%. I want to try making it.


    1. Thank you. I usually use 70% dark chocolate. I have not used frosting on the top. Let me know how it turns out. Enjoy!
