Let's get chocolate wasted?

Brownies like chocolate chip cookies is a timeless recipe that delights everyone. Whenever there is an event where guests sign up to bring a dish, these two desserts are always part of the line up. They never get old. No one every says no more brownies.

One thing I have always failed at when experimenting with brownies is putting gummy bears in them. Add chocolate chips for a double douce of chocolate is my go too but gummy bears would be fun if I can master doing it right. Do you know how to add gummy bears to brownies? Add in the comments so I can try it.


  • 1cup of sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3/4 cup of flour

  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar

  • 2/3 cup of cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips

  • 3/4 tsp of salt

  • 2/3 cup of butter

  • 2 tbsp of water

  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 325°.

  2. Lightly spray a baking dish. Recommend using an 8x8 glass baking dish.

  3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl.

  4. Add sugar, salt and chocolate chips into the mixing bowl.

  5. Using a separate mixing bowl whisk egg, butter, water and vanilla.

  6. Slowly add dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and mix together until completely combined.

  7. Pour into lightly sprayed baking dishing using a spatula to smooth the top.

  8. Bake for 40 minutes.

  9. Using a butter knife or toothpick stick into the middle of the brownie. When you pull the butter knife or toothpick from the brownie and it comes away with only a few crumbs or no wet mixture your brownies are done.

  10. Let sit and cool for 2 hours.
