• 200 grams (7 ounces) dark chocolate
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 250 grams (8.8 ounces or 1.25 cups) sugar
  • 125 grams (4.4 ounces or 1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 70 grams (2.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 10 fresh strawberries, sliced


  • 21*21cm (8.25*8.25 inch) Baking Tin

    Make sure it's the right size to ensure your brownies bake evenly. Line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

  • Mixing Bowls

    Use separate bowls for wet and dry ingredients to make mixing easier and more efficient.

  • Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Accurate measurements are key to perfect brownies. Don’t eyeball it!

  • Whisk and Spatula

    A whisk for combining ingredients smoothly and a spatula for scraping every last bit of batter.

  • Low Heat Saucepan

    Melt your chocolate and butter slowly to avoid burning. Stir continuously.


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C). Line a 21x21 cm (8.25x8.25 inch) baking tin with parchment paper. Ensure the parchment paper edges hang over the sides for easy brownie removal.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chopped dark chocolate over low heat, stirring continuously until smooth and well combined. To avoid burning, use a double boiler if you prefer.

Step 3

Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the sugar, mixing well to combine. Allow the mixture to cool slightly so the eggs don't scramble in the next step.

Step 4

Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly after each addition until the batter is smooth.

Step 5

Stir in the flour and salt until just combined. Be careful not to overmix to ensure a fudgy texture.

Step 6

Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and spread it evenly. Use a spatula to smooth the top if necessary.

Step 7

Sprinkle the milk chocolate chips over the batter and add the sliced strawberries on top. Gently press them into the batter so they don't move during baking.

Step 8

Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Be sure not to overbake to maintain a fudgy texture.

Step 9

Allow the brownies to cool completely in the tin before lifting them out using the parchment paper and cutting them into squares.
