Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Brownies

Yes, you read that right πŸ˜‰ My parent’s 43rd wedding anniversary  was this past Wednesday and with my birthday coming up this Sunday I decided to kill two birds with one stone…celebrate on Saturday! So at my dad’s request I made these really fudgy and according to G–Man they are the BEST brownies I have made yet! High praises!! πŸ˜‰

I found the recipe over at Sweet As A Cookie blog, super easy recipe! I used Ghiradelli’s Double Chocolate hot cocoa mix, but you can use any hot cocoa you have on hand.


G-Man’s favorite hot cocoa



1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1/2 tbs. vanilla extract

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 3/4 cup hot chocolate mix

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Grease and line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment; set aside. (not necessary, but it helps brownies easily remove from pan.)

In a microwave safe bowl heat your butter until melted.

Once your butter is melted stir in the vanilla and two eggs; set aside.

In another bowl whisk together hot cocoa mix, flour, salt and baking powder.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until combined.

Mix in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.

Bake for approximately 35 minutes (don’t worry if it still looks raw).

Allow to cool. 

This recipe is definitely a keeper, hope you give it a try and share the recipe with your friends! I’m absolutely sure your Valentine is going to love these!!


Ha, yeah there’s a bit of the corner missing. That’s where G–Man dug in πŸ˜‰
