Ree Drummond makes a recipe for dark chocolate brownies that will appeal to chocolate fans

Drummond wrote about her dark chocolate brownies in a 2014 blog post on The Pioneer Woman website.

“Are you more dark chocolate or milk chocolate? ” she asked. “I have to say that I myself am more in the light/milk chocolate camp.”

She continued: “My dad, on the other hand, was always a dark chocolate addict. When I was growing up and my mom would buy these little bags of miniature Hershey candy bars, he would go straight for the Special Dark chocolate bars that no one no one else wanted.

Drummond went on to say that her dad’s favorite gift was “a box of good dark chocolates,” so she developed a dark chocolate brownie recipe her dad could enjoy.

“For these ultra rich, ultra decadent brownies, I basically adapted the usual brownie recipe that I’ve been using for years,” the Food Network host explained. “I did it in the saucepan rather than the blender, and added cocoa powder on top of the baking chocolate. Then, just before putting the dough in the mold, I added chocolate chips.

How to make Ree Drummond’s Dark Chocolate Brownies

Drummond showed how to make the brownie bites version of his dark chocolate brownies during an episode of The pioneer woman. She made the treat as part of a 6ft sundae dessert for a birthday party.

She chopped up unsweetened chocolate and added it to a pan with butter and melted the ingredients together. “Now these are very, very chocolatey brownie bites, so I’m going to add a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder as well,” the Food Network host explained.

After mixing everything, Drummond turned off the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes. She added sugar and stirred it halfway, then added vanilla and stirred, poured in eggs and flour and stirred halfway, then added chocolate chips halfway. sweetened and mixed the dough together.

The pioneer woman star poured the dough into a baking sheet. “If you don’t let the brownie batter cool before proceeding, the chocolate chips will just melt,” she noted. “And you still want to see the chocolate chip pieces in there.”

Drummond shared the secret to baking his brownies perfectly

While the dough provides all the decadence you can manage, there’s also a sweet spot when it comes to baking the dessert. Drummond baked the brownies in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes and checked them with a toothpick.

“If they’re too gooey/messy, put them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes,” her recipe says. “Let cool completely (important!), then cut into small squares.”

Drummond’s “cook’s note” explains how the brownies will firm up more as they cool.

“When hot, the brownies will seem too gooey/soft,” she shared. “As they cool, they will firm up. (Brownies are best several hours after baking or even the next day!)”

The full recipe is available on the Food Network website.
