I have no idea why these are called boyfriend brownies but I came across the recipe and between the two bags of chocolate chips in the recipe and the clever name, I knew I had to give the recipe a try.

How Do The Boyfriend Brownies Taste

They are fudgy in the center with chewy edges and studded with chocolate chips. They are not quite as fudgy as some of my other brownie recipes, such as The Best Turtle Brownies, Loaded Oreo Cream Cheese Brownies, or The Best German Chocolate Brownies, but they are by no means cakey.

Those other brownie recipes are closer to eating straight up fudge, whereas the boyfriend brownies are not quite to that extreme.

They are quite thick and have a crackly top which is always a bonus for me.

You get a bit of texture from chocolate chips that are stirred into the batter.

How To Make The Boyfriend Brownies

Simply melt together butter, sugar, water (or coffee if you want to enhance and complement the chocolate flavor even more), and stir in a bag of chocolate chips until they melt.

Add eggs, flour, and stir in another bag of chocolate chips before baking the brownies.

I recommend underbaking them by just a touch because gooey and a fudgy reigns supreme for me when it comes to brownies.

The longer you bake or overbake them, the faster and more prone to drying out in the subsequent days they will be.

If you don’t care about neatness, I would dig into them as soon as they are sufficiently cool and top them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. There’s nothing better than warm brownies with ice cream.

Yield: 15
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 47 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 57 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water or coffee
  • two 12-ounce bags semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F, line a 9×13-inch pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup, and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. To a medium saucepan, add the butter, sugar, water or coffee, and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking nearly continuously until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved (it’s okay if it’s still slightly grainy).
  3. Turn off the heat, add 12 ounces of chocolate chips, and whisk to combine until chips have melted. Transfer the mixture into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the eggs, vanilla, and whisk vigorously to combine until smooth and shiny.
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and gently stir to combine; don’t overmix.
  6. Add the remaining 12 ounces of chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  7. Turn batter out into the prepared pan and bake for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs but no batter; don’t overbake because I think the brownies are better when fudgier and not overbaked an drier. Allow the brownies to cool for at least 30 to 60 minutes before slicing and serving if you want to slice them neatly. Brownies will keep airtight at room temp for up to 5 days.

  2. These brownies need to happen in my kitchen! They look amazing!

  3. Wow! These look delicious–super fudgy and soooo chocolatey. Ice cream sounds perfect on top too. I think this just gave me a big brownie craving!!

  4. OMG! I just made these and holy moly these brownies are the bommbbbb! I always keep Ghirardelli brownie mix on hand but I’ll never need that again. Your recipe is off the charts. Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe :)

  6. These sound great. Can’t wait to try them. One question: why transfer everything to a bowl and have to wash one more thing? I’d just add all the additional ingredients to the same pan the chocolate is in!

    • Well it depends how big your saute pan was that you were using to melt the butter and chocolate. Mine was not big enough to mix up the entire recipe in, thus the transfer.

  7. These brownies were exceptional… they were LIGHT, and both cakey and fudgy. I made several small changes. Rather than put foil on the bottom of the pan and spray, I buttered the pan and floured it. The first add of chocolate to the butter, sugar and coffee (USE STRONG BLACK COFFEE), I used 10 oz of semi sweet and 2 oz of bittersweet. Then instead of adding a full tsp of baking soda, I used 1/4 tsp baking soda and 3/4 tsp of baking powder. I cut the sugar by 1/4 cup. I also added chopped walnuts. This was ready in 45 mins. The aroma was wonderful and the brownies even better than anticipated. I have a great brownie recipe that I’ve been making for years … not anymore! This is my new go to brownie recipe. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

  8. Made a half batch today because I didn’t have enough chocolate chips and they were yummy! Not sure if it was because I halved the recipe but they baked kind of weird with a big hollow section in between the top layer and the rest of the batter in the middle so that when I went to test it with a toothpick it all caved in. But they still tasted delicious and I would want to try it again!
