Brownie Recipe with Cocoa Powder

These delicious cocoa brownies will remind you of good old-fashioned treats. This won't be a good day to be counting your calories. Either kind of Cocoa powder works just fine for this recipe. I much prefer the dark Cocoa powder and have included it in this recipe. I'll bet you this one will bring them coming back for more. Chopped almonds or chopped walnuts make this brownie a sure winner. Personally I prefer walnuts in my brownie recipe with cocoa powder.

Cold milk goes perfect with this cocoa powder brownie treat. When the kids get home from school, they will appreciate these brownies too.

MMMMMMMMMMM! Another sweet treat that I beg ya to find anyone who doesn't love ‘em!
My auntie Tori used to make wonderful homemade brownies with cocoa powder, and chewy brownie too that would knock your socks off. The very thought of eating all those super yummy mouthfuls makes me salivate.
There are lots of variations to this brownie recipe with cocoa powder, so if ya want, you can get real creative, but they all start pretty much the same.
I’m hungry, so let’s get right to baking these little beauties!


First butter and flour a 9 by 13 inch glass, or metal pan REAL GOOD!

Preheat oven to 310 degrees, (DO IT NOW so your oven will be ready when you are.)

An’ make sure your oven racks are IN THE MIDDLE, (Why? Because Cocoa Brownies aren't too good when they turn out doughy on top, an’ burnt on the bottom, that’s why.)

Sift all dry recipe ingredients (Makes it all mix better).

Brownies with Cocoa Powder Ingredients:

4 large fresh eggs
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
8 ounces butter, melted
1 -1/4 cups special dark cocoa (unsweetened)
OR regular cocoa powder works fine
2 tsp. vanilla extract
for mint flavor (optional 1 tsp. peppermint extract)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2/3 tsp. kosher salt

Brownie Recipe with Cocoa Directions:

In a large mixing bowl and electric mixer; beat the eggs till fluffy.

Recipe Note: Sift all dry recipe ingredients.
Add brown sugar, white sugar, melted butter, special dark cocoa powder, vanilla, flour, and kosher salt. Mix well till all are combined.

Pour cocoa brownie batter into your greased and floured 8 inch baking pan. Bake brownie at 310 degrees for 40 minutes or so. Check by inserting a tooth pick in the center and see if it comes out clean. When cocoa brownie is done, remove from oven, let cool completely before cutting.

This dark cocoa powder brownie recipe makes about 16 big brownies.

Comments about this Brownie Recipe with Cocoa Powder.
There should be in the headlines reading, (Dark Cocoa) way good cocoa brownies.
Howdy all, everyone seems to have a favorite brownie that they love, but are these brownies better with the dark cocoa? I sincerely hope so, I'm always on the hunt for real good brownies.

I have tried the cocoa brownies made with brown sugar and butter. Blondies and Cocoa brownies are both the tops.
Debbie Fernandez Folsom Sacramento California Mar 27, 2009 11:33AM

I think this brownie recipe with cocoa powder has distinction. I would describe it a more cake than fudgy brownie. If I could spell better, I would be better able to describe this cocoa brownie recipe.
Chief Bakers Man North Dakota April 28, 2009

Indeed these are dark cocoa good!! Most people rave over good fudge brownies, but I will say that they are too often wet and sloppy. I like it best when my brownies are cooked all the way through, chocolate flavored, or better yet, dark chocolate flavored, and of course chocolatey.
This cocoa brownie recipe is made perfect from scratch, and that is not easy to do. My advise, give these cocoa brownies a try.
Bob Brown Salem Oregon June 15, 2009

Has anyone really tried this cocoa recipe? Let me see, cocoa or dark cocoa, perhaps this would be the best way to make them good and chewy. Normally I always make the cocoa brownie recipe with the special dark cocoa powder, it sure is an easy recipe to follow this way. This one was not too cake like or not too fudge like, cocoa is the name and chewy and cake like at the same time.

OK, I do plan to give coco brownies a try. I was going to bake a pie, but what the heck. I'm sure everyone will like cocoa brownies instead. There I did it. The batter looked great, glossy, shinny, very dark brown with the dark cocoa, and it came out great. Cocoa chocolate to the max.
Bob Newbib North Place Idaho Aug 28, 2009

Every notice how they put recipes on all the products, like, flour bag, cocoa box, and even the sugar bag has a recipe. I can usually trust recipes by DeerLake Cookie recipes. They try hard to make theirs in larger type and there is a easy recipe PRINT button on every brownie recipe. I may make this cocoa brownie recipe to be my new standard for a brownie recipe. It is way good!
Windy in the Wind Dallas Texas Oct 27, 2009

Now this cocoa brownie is just the way I like mine. I used some real butter and then put in a bit more of the kosher salt. Note, there is another one called magic brownies that is perhaps even a better cocoa brownie recipe choice than this one. Be brave new cooks out there, ya know it is safe to add other kinds of chocolate to these brownie recipes. Try adding some ghirradelli, a sweet chocolate bar, or some dark chocolate bars you might already have at home. Semisweet chocolate pieces also work as another ingredient for any brownie recipe.

Deerlake Cookies to Share Coffee Cup

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
