Fudgy Skillet Brownies

Rating: 3.5 stars 59
Enjoy a homemade treat in less than an hour with a recipe that uses the same skillet to melt the chocolate and bake the brownies. Then scoop them right from the pan.

Peanut-Butter Swirl Brownies

Rating: 3.5 stars 423
Dollops of peanut butter filling are spooned onto brownie batter; pulling a knife back and forth through both results in a marbleized look.

Fudge Brownies

Rating: 4 stars 80
The right ingredients make this decadent classic healthier, but every bit as delicious: Pureed sweet potatoes add moisture, sweetness, and a fudgy consistency; whole-wheat flour is a perfect choice for dense, bold-flavored brownies; natural, unsweetened cocoa powder packs far more antioxidant power than other forms of chocolate.

Coconut-Chocolate Swirl Brownies

Sweetened condensed milk adds an unmistakable richness to the coconut batter for these swirly treats. When marbleizing the coconut and brownie batters, make sure the butter knife reaches the bottom of the pan.

Rum Balls

Rating: 3.5 stars 596
These rum-infused brownie balls are perfectly-sized treats for adults.

Chewy Brownies

What's gooey on the inside, crackly on top, and supremely delicious all over?Our fresh take on this crowd-pleasing dessert. Unsweetened chocolate and brown sugar impart a rich, well-rounded flavor, while adding a bit of oil to the batter results in the addictively chewy texture that makes this version an instant classic.

White Chocolate-Gingerbread Blondies

Rating: 3.5 stars 219
Blondies are made even more irresistible, thanks to cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

Cherry-Almond Brownies

Rating: 3 stars 12
Warm from the oven, these brownies are a chewy, gooey treat. When refrigerated, they cut into neat bars and will keep, tightly covered, about a week.

Slow-Cooker Triple Chocolate Brownies

Rating: 3.5 stars 430
Think beyond stews: Uncover the sweet side of your slow cooker with these crowd-pleasing brownies.

Butter-Pecan Blondies

Rating: 4 stars 9
Blondies prove that pantry staples like flour, brown sugar, butter, and eggs can be spun into pure gold—and without a mixer, at that. Amp up their flavor with a touch of dark rum and a tumble of toasted pecans, and a new favorite is born.
