Toffee Crunch Brownies

Somedays you just wake up and your brain screams, BROWNIES! Today is such a day. But not just any brownie, today calls for a toffee crunch brownie. These brownies bake up super moist and chewy because brownies are not meant to be cake. Am I right?

Line a 13×9-inch pan with parchment paper, or aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside. In a large microwave bowl, melt 2 sticks of butter. Stir in 2 cups sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. 👩‍🍳TIP: Do not cool the butter. A warm batter will wake up the cocoa.

Add 4 eggs. 👩‍🍳TIP: I crack an egg into a ramekin and whisk it with a fork adding one egg at a time to the batter and mixing well before adding the next egg. This gives you a nice glaze texture to the outside of the brownie.

Add 3/4 cup cocoa; mix in until all the powder is blended. Add 2 cups flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, beat well. Fold in 1 cup chocolate chips.

Spread brownie mix into prepared pan.

Sprinkle with 1/4 cup toffee bits and gently press into batter. Bake at 350°F for 25 – 30 minutes. I love the smell of these brownies baking in the oven. Cool slightly in pan before removing to cool completely on wire rack. Store in covered container at room temperature.

A one-bowl brownie that is everything a brownie should be: chocolaty, fudgy, and delicious. Perfect for sharing with co-workers, friends, and neighbors. – Ella💙

    Not for nothing, but brownies are USUALLY not ma thing. I always find myself tinkering with the basic blueprint, because on their own they ain’t supply my sweet tooth with its highest love.

    But . . . this! This here is genius. Toffee (an absolute favorite) AND crunch? You are the queen of flavah and you prove it all the time. Big props to you on this one! 🙂

    1. Thank you, M! You have a true gift with words and have lifted my spirits with your kindness. I am so glad you enjoy them!
