What is brown butter? Well, brown butter happens when you cook butter over low heat until it melts, then it boils and as it cooks it turns a light golden brown color, hence the name. The golden brown color gives the butter a richer, nuttier flavor. Adding brown butter to sweet and savory dishes adds a huge depth of flavor to your recipe, especially to baked goods.

These brownies have 3 kinds of chocolate and tons of brown butter flavor. Browning butter is SUPER easy, I promise. You can see this post for a tutorial but basically you add your butter to a saucepan and heat it over medium low heat for several minutes, stirring occasionally, watching it closely, until it turns a rich amber color. If you’ve never done it before you just have to be careful to watch it as it starts to change color because it goes from butter color to burned pretty fast. You want a rich amber color.

(Whenever I use the word “amber” does anyone think of Jurassic Park? I can’t think about that word without thinking of the little mosquito in the block of amber at the beginning of the movie.)

ANYWAY, best brownies in the WORLD right here.

These Brown Butter Brownies are my FAVORITE BROWNIES ever!! They're gooey and perfect and the brown butter inside gives them a unique flavor. Plus - 3 kinds of chocolate!
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 24 brownies
Serving Size


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13" pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, about 6 minutes, until it becomes brown in color. It will foam, reduce, then foam again. Once it’s done cooking the foam is a light brown and it will dissipate after you remove it from the heat. Once it starts to brown, keep stirring so it doesn’t burn. Once it gets to an amber color, turn off the flame.
  • Add both baking chocolates to the butter and stir until the chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, and cocoa and stir until combined. Stir in flour.
  • Pour brownie batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for 20-24 minutes until a toothpick along the edge comes out with just a few crumbs. This results in very fudgy dense brownies. Cool before slicing into bars.
  • Optional: Add 1 cup of chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or other chopped candies to the batter before pouring into the pan to bake.

  1. Those brownies look just perfect, although I was convinced as soon as I saw the words brown butter and brownie in the same title!  They couldn’t possibly be bad!  🙂
