These jumbo-sized treats are a brownie lover’s dream with bittersweet chocolate and milk- and white-chocolate chips. Plus they're convenient; ready to serve, no portioning required—easily portable too. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Cookie Perfection" (Clarkson Potter).


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into large pieces

  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 ½ cups sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup (6 ounces) milk-chocolate chips

  • 1 cup (6 ounces) white-chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place six 4-inch shallow paper baking cups on a baking sheet. In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pot of simmering water, melt butter and bittersweet chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until combined. Whisk in cocoa and salt. Fold in flour until combined. Stir in all chocolate chips.

  2. Fill each cup three-quarters full with batter. Bake until set and a tester inserted into centers comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. (Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.)

Cook's Notes

For a nutty version, stir 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans into the batter with the chocolate chips. To make squares instead of cups, bake the batter in an eight-inch square pan, lined with buttered parchment, for 35 to 40 minutes, and then cut into 2 1/2-inch squares.
