Triple Chocolate Brownies

Yield: 8-inch square pan

Author Maryanne Cabrera


  • 8 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 5 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, paked
  • 3 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup extra dark chocolate chips*
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all four sides of pan.  Lightly grease with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, add butter, coconut oil, chopped unsweetened chocolate, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Fill a medium pot with about two inches of water. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Place bowl over pot of water (making sure bowl does not touch water) and allow ingredients to gently melt. Stir as needed to ensure even melting. Add sugar and brown sugar. Mix until sugars have been thoroughly incorporated. Remove bowl from pot. Allow mixture to cool slightly before stirring in whisked eggs and vanilla.

  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to melted chocolate mixture and mix until there are no longer any dry streaks of flour. Add extra-dark chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. Fold to combine. Be careful not to over mix.

  4. Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Smooth into an even layer. Bake for 28-30 minutes until the surface of the brownies are set and a toothpick inserted in center of brownies comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool in pan for 15-20 minutes. Lift brownies out of pan using parchment overhang. Transfer brownies to wire rack to cool. Once cooled, slice brownies into desired portions. Store brownies are room temperature in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

  • I used this 8-inch square baking pan.
  • Warm brownies will be difficult to slice into clean portions. Wait for brownies to cool to room temperature. 
  • I used these 63% extra dark chocolate chips.
  • Use any mixture of chocolate chips to equal 1 1/2 cups (milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, mint chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, etc)
  • Overbaking the brownies will result in a dry, cakey texture. It is better to err on the side of underbaked.
