What’s better than chocolate brownies? Double chocolate brownies. And what’s even better than those? Triple chocolate brownies of course! This recipe is for chocolate lovers only because it’s so chocolaty and rich. In fact, I think these are the best-tasting brownies I ever made!

An indulgent combination of cocoa powder and 2 kinds of chocolate chips infuses these brownies with richness, while vanilla adds a contrasting flavor. Just imagine how incredible your kitchen is going to smell while these are in the oven.

You need to be patient while they are baking and then wait for them to cool down a little. Once they start to pull away from the pan edges they’re ready to serve, so there’s no need to wonder when they’re done. Never has a brownie recipe been this easy, even for baking newbies!

You can serve them warm, paired with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. They’re a great comfort food choice and I guarantee if you love chocolate, then you will fall in love with these! Add a berry or two for garnish and perhaps a sprig of mint to add color to the plate.

When a chocolate craving hits me, oftentimes I pull out my white chocolate chip brownies recipe or another favorite of mine, like this chocolate cherry fudge. They are both so delicious. And easy to make too!

Main Ingredients

The ingredients to make triple chocolate brownies spread out on a table.

These brownies are all about the chocolate. In addition, you will need several other basic ingredients to prepare them. Let’s take a look at the key ingredients in this easy recipe:

  • Cocoa powder: For a chocolate flavor. This is just one of the chocolaty ingredients in the brownies, along with the chips. Make sure you’re using unsweetened cocoa or else they will come out way too sweet.
  • Sugar: To add sweetness. White granulated sugar is the typical choice for brownies. You could try brown sugar if you prefer it, however, or even some of each.
  • Chocolate chips: To add a stronger taste. I don’t think there’s any such thing as too much chocolate, which is why there are 2 kinds of chips as well as cocoa powder. Use semisweet and milk chocolate chips or swap one kind for white chocolate chips if you’re a fan. If you’re using white instead of semisweet, you might like to use less sugar in the recipe since white chocolate brings its own sweetness.
  • Vanilla extract: For adding a contrasting flavor. A touch of vanilla contrasts beautifully with the rich chocolate taste. You might like to tweak the flavor of the dessert though by subbing coconut or hazelnut extract instead. I bet a few drops of orange extract would be amazing!

Instructions Overview

First, you need to melt the butter and then mix in sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Next, you can add the flour, salt, baking powder, and chocolate chips.

Once everything is well mixed, all that’s left to do is bake the triple chocolate brownies in the oven.

As long as you can beat ingredients together you can make these brownies like a professional baker!

Common Questions

How should I store these?

They keep for a couple of days in an airtight container. I recommend you keep them on the countertop since they dry out too fast in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze them?

Yes, you can freeze these for up to 3 months double-wrapped in foil. Thaw them in the refrigerator overnight.

Is it possible to make these ahead?

They can be prepared in advance, but bear in mind they will only keep for about 2 days so don’t make them too far ahead.

What should I serve with them?

Ice cream or whipped cream is always great with homemade brownies. You might like to garnish them with fresh berries or a sprig of fresh mint.

How do I reheat these triple chocolate brownies?

Wrap them in foil and then give them about 10 minutes on your oven’s ‘warm’ setting.

Chopnotch Tips

  • Since this recipe is all about chocolate, make sure you use the best quality ingredients. This means the best quality cocoa powder as well as the chocolate chips. You will be glad you did when you taste the finished product.
  • Feel free to add other ingredients to the batter if you wish. Walnut halves or chopped caramel candies would be great in there.
  • Bear in mind a little goes a long way. One small square might not look like much, but believe me, it’s very rich!
