Milk Chocolate Brownies

Dense and chewy Milk Chocolate Brownies which are the perfect type of brownies for milk chocolate lovers.
I am usually not a big lover of brownies, mainly because I don’t quite enjoy the intense dark chocolate flavor. I have always been a milk chocolate girl. Be it chocolate cake, ganache or chocolate frosting…dark, rich chocolate flavor is a big no no for me.
I had saved this amazing recipe of Milk Chocolate Brownies from this superb website, Bake or Break last year and I just made it last week. And I made it thrice already. No, I didn’t have it all the three times. I made it twice for Fadal’s colleagues and once for us. I got rave reviews from everyone.This is just so good that even the dark chocolate purist will approve it. The entire credit for this recipe goes to Bake or Break as I followed the exact same recipe, no changes at all.
Since milk chocolate is the star flavor in these brownies, make sure that you use your favorite chocolate. I made it once with Ghirardelli, and 2 times with Galaxy Milk Chocolate, both were equally good (but I think I liked the one with galaxy a teeny bit more :D). I baked the brownies for a good 40 minutes because I personally like a cakey brownie more than a fudge one. But if you like fudge brownies, reduce the cooking time to 30 minutes.
  • 170g milk chocolate (I used Galaxy plain)
  • 114 grams unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • To check doneness of these brownies, you will not check by inserting the toothpick in the center, but from the side. Insert a toothpick halfway between the center and the side of the pan.  Once the toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, its done.
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 8 inch square baking pan with a parchment paper making sure that the paper hangs over the sides so that you can lift it later. Grease it.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter together in a microwave oven on 30 second bursts till the chocolate and butter gets nicely melted. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Add in the chocolate butter mixture into this and mix well until it turns smooth.
  4. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix with a spatula until just combined.
  5. You can add chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate into the batter at this point.
  6. Transfer this batter to the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the brownies look set and when a toothpick inserted halfway between the edge and the center comes out with few moist crumbs attached. If you want a more gooey type brownie, then bake for lesser time and if you want more of a cake brownie, let it sit in the oven for 35 minutes.
  7. Cool the brownie for 30 minutes.
  8. Cut it into squares and enjoy.
