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.

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.

Loaf-Pan Buckeye Brownies

To satisfy a serious chocolate craving whenever the mood strikes, bake a half-batch of brownies in a standard loaf pan. Inspired by buckeye candies, these treats are run through with a ribbon of rich peanut-butter cream that takes on a caramel flavor in the oven. 

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.
