When it comes to brownies, there seem to be two camps. The fudgy or chewy brownie camp, and the cake-like brownie camp.

Chewy Brownies from The Foodie Army Wife

I am of the chewy camp, and these are my favorite brownies.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking pan, and set it aside.

In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup Baking Cocoa.


1 1/2 cup Flour


and 1 1/4 tsp Salt.

Give it a stir, and set it aside.


In a small saucepan, place 1/2 cup (1 stick) of Butter.


To that, you will add 1/4 cup Shortening.


Melt them over low heat. Once they are melted, remove them from the heat so it can cool slightly.


In a mixing bowl…put 3 Eggs.


Add 2 cups Sugar


and 1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla


Beat these together and add the butter mixture.


Now, add in the dry ingredients, about half at a time.


Be sure to scrape the bowl and get everything combined.


To the batter, you are going to add 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped Nuts…however much you like, and whatever kind you like. I prefer Pecans.



Spread the thick chocolaty goodness into your baking dish.



Spread it even, and then bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

And enjoy!

  1. I just came across this recipe via Pinterest and decided to give it a try. They came out great! I used a 9 inch round cake pan because I couldn't find my 9 x 13 lol only thing I changed was the salt I used less. And added mini chocolate chips instead of the nuts. Great brownies thank you!
