Easy Dark Chocolate Chunk Brownies that take just a few minutes to prep and have a deep chocolate flavor with rich dark chocolate chunks.Easy Dark Chocolate Chunk Brownies are five of the most beautiful words in the English language. No melting chocolate in double boilers, no fussy recipes. This batter comes together so quickly you will feel like you barely put in more effort than a box mix.

You know how sometimes you can have different levels of recipes? Like you have a quick version and a more indulgent, complex version? My Fat Witch Bakery Caramel Brownies are the intense, roll up your sleeves and dirty 4 or 5 bowls brownies and these are done with one bowl (assuming it is microwave safe to melt the butter) and a whisk. The caramel ones take about 45 minutes to prepare before baking, these take maaaaaaybe 5 minutes?

Do you guys have high and low effort recipes? Don’t worry though, the flavors here are still amazing! The brownies and soft and tender on the inside, crunchy on the outside and with enough chocolate to make anyone happy. You won’t miss the “I’ll just buy a box mix and make them in a hurry” feeling because these brownies take just a few minutes longer to prepare and taste about a hundred times better.

    1. It’s very dangerous! I’m lucky I’ve got so many other things I need to make or I’d go back to this constantly!

  1. Oh wow – these look amazing, and I just love how quick they are to prep! I also really liked all your great ideas and suggestions for variations! The dried fruit is such a fun idea, and the honey roasted nuts sounds amazing! Such a terrific post!

  2. We definitely have high and low effort recipes here, too – sometimes the low effort recipes are even better! I love that brownies as gorgeous as these ones are so easy to make.

    1. Presentation definitely counts for something! Although they were only pleasant to look at for a few hours before my family gobbled them down… 🙂

  3. These are the best chocolate brownies I have ever made (I tried a lot of recipes). So delicious, just the right amount of sweetness. Perfect! Next time I’ll try it with nuts. Thank you for sharing this with us ?
