These are so rich and chocolatey! The recipe calls for cocoa powder, which lasts longer and is a little less expensive than baking chocolate. Use Dutch-processed cocoa powder when possible. Great for any time, any season!

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: at least a dozen

Source: Recipe courtesy of my mom


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup walnuts (optional)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. Melt butter and shortening over low heat.

  3. As soon as it is completely melted, whisk in the cocoa powder and beat till smooth.
  4. Stir in the sugar and remove the mixture from the heat.
  5. Break four eggs into a separate bowl, to catch any bits of shell, and then thoroughly beat into the sugary mixture. It should become smooth and glossy.
  6. Stir in the vanilla, and then stir in the flour and nuts (nuts optional).

  8. Pour into a greased and lightly floured 13 X 9 inch pan. Gently push the batter to fill the edges of the pan and make light swirls over the top. This is what creates that nice, paper-thin crisp on the top.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  10. If you want to dress up the brownies, Sift a little powdered sugar over small templates. You can also cut out a snowflake/flower pattern from a small circle of paper (which is what I did). Hold the template in place on each individual brownie while you sift the powdered sugar 1-2 tablespoons at a time over their tops. Gently lift off the templates, making sure not to displace any sugar.

  12. Enjoy!

If you live in a humid climate, serve the brownies with powdered sugar immediately.
