May I introduce you to my favorite homemade brownie recipe? These crinkle top brownies are just so incredibly delicious, have a slightly moist & fudgy core, and are filled with toasted nuts!

An absolute treat for all brownie fans! It is impossible to resist here, trust me.

And if you are not sold yet, making brownies at home is, in fact, so easy. You just have to whip together a few ingredients, bake it, and here you go.

I have been baking this recipe for years, and it always turns out perfect! No matter if made with or without nuts! Yet, I do love to add some toasted nuts for a nice crunch.

There is only one rule, quite a difficult one, to be honest: To make perfect brownies, you SHOULD leave them too cool completely for at least 1-2 hours in the pan before devouring them.

Sound difficult? IT IS! It’s damn hard to resist the seductive smell from the oven.

Recipe FAQ & Tips

How long does it stay fresh? Store leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Which is the best chocolate for this recipe? Choose between dark (semi-sweet) chocolate chips or a chocolate bar. 

Love super fudgy brownies? Reduce the baking time to 20-25 minutes.

Which nuts should I use? Tastes delicious with a mixture of nuts OR hazelnuts, walnuts, cashew nuts, or pecans nuts. The nuts taste best if you toast them beforehand in a skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes. The essential oils are released during the roasting process = pure taste!

Nut allergy? Skip the nuts!

Sugar: This recipe uses slightly less sugar than almost any other brownie recipe. If you love it super sweet, use ½ cup white sugar and ½ cup brown sugar. Although I recommend trying it with less sugar, they are still sweet and delicious, yet have slightly fewer calories!
