Doesn’t get better than homemade brownies. I’ve been playing around in the kitchen and have developed this recipe that is pretty darn close to the beloved box mix brownie. I tested them at room temperature and chilled. Both equally amazing. They are literally just right in every aspect!

Here’s what you’ll need to whip up a batch of your own. I used mini chocolate chips, but use your favorite chocolate chip. Up front in the glass bowls is flour, salt and sugar.

I had to refrain myself from licking this bowl clean. Best brownie batter ever! Pour your batter into a parchment lined 8×11 inch baking dish. You can use a 9×13 inch but they’ll be much more thin and you’ll have to adjust your baking time.  Same with a 8×8 inch. Thicker brownies and longer baking time. I find that this size pan was just right.

What’s The Best Type of Pan For Baking Brownies?

  1. Light colored aluminum pans are my favorite for baking brownies.  They heat up quickly without overheating, and then cools down quickly once removed from the oven.
  2. Glass (such as Pyrex) and ceramic have poor heat conduction.  I’ve used plenty of my pyrex pans for baking brownies, but I try to stick to my lighter aluminum non-stick pans.
  3. Dark colored aluminum pans are a very common material.  It work just fine for baking brownies, but since dark colors absorb more heat than light colors, keep a close eye on your brownies to prevent over baking.
  4. Edge Brownie Pans have become very popular.  It’s the pan that gives you an edge brownie piece with every square.  It’s a light aluminum pan, so I’m a fan!  Find them at most Walmart and Target stores.  Amazon is also a great place to find them.
