  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips milk or semisweet, divided


  • sprinkles, toffee bits, crushed Oreos, crushed candies, chopped nuts optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-x-11-inch baking dish and line it with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, oil, and both sugars and whisk well.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix for another 2 minutes.
  • In another bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder.
  • Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in ¾ cup chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth out until even. Top with remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips and any other desired toppings and bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the middle no longer jiggles.
  • Let sit in the pan for 10–15 minutes, then remove from the pan and let cool completely before cutting.



Make Ahead: Brownies will last 3–4 days in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last up to a week if stored in the refrigerator.
Cutting Tip: Do you ever have trouble cutting your brownies into clean lines? Sometimes the brownies will tear or bunch up if you are trying to cut them with a regular knife. Try a plastic knife next time and it will cut through the brownies like butter. So smooth, and way less mess!
