Serves: 16


  • 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 3⁄4 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chunks


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-inch baking pan.
  • In a medium bowl using a stiff wire whisk, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another medium bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla and cream together using an electric mixer or by hand until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in the eggs, working each 1 in completely before adding the next. Scrape down mixing bowl; add the flour mixture. Beat just long enough to incorporate. Mix in chocolate chunks. Transfer the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth with a spatula.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool at room temperature at least 1 hour. Cut into 36 pieces. Will keep refrigerated for 1 week or in freezer for up to 6 weeks.
