Triple Chocolate Brownies 
(adapted from SugarySweet’s recipe). 


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate 
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (room temperature) 
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips 
  • 1/2 dark or milk chocolate chips (depending on your preferred sweetness) 
  • Optional: extra 1/4 cup chocolate chips for drizzling 


  1. Grease a regular or mini muffin tin. Set aside. 
  2. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. On medium heat, melt the semi-sweet chocolate and gradually add in the butter, stir until smooth. Be very careful, keep the heat on medium-low—once you burn it, or it begins to curdle, you can’t go back! 
  4. Pour the melted chocolate and butter into a large bowl and mix in the brown sugar and egg until combined. Stir in the vanilla. 
  5. Preheat your oven now to 350F. 
  6. Gradually add in the flour mixture. 
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips. To make sure they don’t all sink to the bottom, toss the chocolate chips with a dusting of flour before adding them into the batter. 
  8. Fill the regular or mini muffin tins up about 3/4 of the way full. 
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes. 
  10. Once the brownies are completely cooled, start making your chocolate drizzle by melting 1/4 of your extra chocolate chips. 
  11. Fill a regular sandwich bag or a piping bag and drizzle across your cooled brownies. For a pop of Easter colour, use white chocolate and add a few drops of food colouring for a whimsical touch. 

Happy Easter! 

Decadent and easy to make, these triple chocolate brownies are perfect for any occasion.
