  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips divided (215g)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar (125g)
  • 3 Tablespoons Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 2 large egg whites room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate melting wafers optional (125g)


  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In large, microwave safe bowl, combine butter and 1 cup (170) of chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir well. Return to microwave and heat for 15 seconds at a time (stirring after every 15 seconds) until chocolate and butter are completely melted and combined.
  • Stir in cocoa powder and then sugar (mixture may be thick, that's OK).
  • Add egg whites and vanilla extract, stir well.
  • In separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Gradually stir flour mixture into chocolate mixture until completely combined.
  • Stir in milk and water until evenly combined.
  • Divide the batter between the two prepared cookie sheets, pouring half onto one sheet and half onto the other.
  • Use a spatula to spread the batter very thinly (think the thickness of a potato chip) and evenly (try to keep the edges even, otherwise they will be more likely to burn). Sprinkle each half with 2 Tablespoons (22g) of the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake (it's best to bake the sheets one at a time) for 15-17 minutes. Keep a close eye on the brownie brittle so that the edges don't burn. If your oven does not bake evenly, I recommend turning the pan halfway through baking. 
  • Remove from oven and immediately use a large knife or pizza cutter to cut shapes into the brownie brittle.
  • Allow the brittle to sit, undisturbed, until cool.
  • Break brittle along the cut lines that you made with knife/pizza cutter.
  • Set pieces on wax paper or cooling rack and melt your dark chocolate chips or melting wafers at 15-second increments (stirring between each) until completely melted.
  • Use a spoon or knife to drizzle chocolate over brownie brittle pieces (you may also transfer the melted chocolate to a small ziploc bag and snip a small hole in one of the corners and drizzle the chocolate that way).
  • Allow the chocolate to set and harden before serving and enjoying.
