Popcorn Chocolate Brownies


Main Ingredients

  • 250 grams (9 oz) 70% chocolate
  • 250 grams (9 oz) butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (heaping)
  • 4 eggs
  • 250 grams (9 oz) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour (heaping)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 70 grams (2.5 oz) nuts


  • Double Boiler

    A double boiler helps melt the chocolate and butter evenly without burning. If you don't have one, a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water works just as well. Be sure to stir constantly.

  • Electric Mixer

    An electric mixer will whip your eggs and sugar to a fluffy perfection. If you're using a hand mixer, it might require a little more elbow grease, but the results will be just as rewarding!

  • Sifter

    Sifting the flour and cocoa powder ensures there are no lumps, making your batter smooth and your pastries flawless.

  • Baking Pan

    Choose a baking pan that’s the right size for the amount of batter. A standard 9x13 inch pan works well. Make sure to grease it properly to prevent sticking.


Step 1


Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler, add a pinch of salt to the chocolate.
Beat the eggs with sugar until fluffy and white.

Step 2


Sift flour and cocoa into the egg mixture.
Pour in the melted chocolate.
Add your favorite nuts.

Step 3


Pour the batter into a baking pan and bake for 27 minutes at 180°C (350°F).

Step 4


Cool for at least 15 minutes.
Serve with ice cream and popcorn.

These variations ensure everyone can partake in the deliciousness without missing out on the flavor and fun!


  • Why is my chocolate mixture seizing up?

    Chocolate can seize if water or steam gets into it, or if it's heated too quickly. Make sure your equipment is completely dry and melt the chocolate slowly over lower heat for best results.

  • How do I ensure my pastries are baked through?

    A simple toothpick test works wonders. Insert a toothpick into the center of the pastry—if it comes out clean or with just a few crumbs, your pastries are ready!

  • Can I replace the nuts with something else?

    Absolutely! Feel free to swap out the nuts for dried fruits, chocolate chips, or even leave them out entirely if you prefer. Customize to your taste!

  • What's the best way to store these pastries?

    Store the pastries in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the fridge for up to a week. For longer storage, you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.

  • Can I use a different type of chocolate?

    Yes, you can experiment with different types of chocolate. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate can be used to transform the flavor profile. Adjust the sugar quantity accordingly if you switch to a sweeter chocolate.

  • Is it necessary to sift the flour and cocoa powder?

    While it's not absolutely necessary, sifting helps remove lumps, ensuring a smoother and more consistent batter. It greatly enhances the texture of your final product.
