2-Ingredient Chocolate Brownies Recipe: Moist, Airy & Totally Irresistible

Brownies should be their own food group, right? We think so! While a box brownie mix is delicious (no shame in the box!), we love a good homemade brownie recipe. This easy brownie recipe is one we especially love because it has only two ingredients. Two!

All you need for this moist chocolate brownie is semisweet chocolate chips and four large eggs. The eggs are separated and serve two purposes in this dessert recipe: the egg yolks add richness to the chocolate and the egg whites add lightness to the finished batter. The chocolate is melted in the microwave, cooled slightly, then whisked with the eggs yolks and a little water. The egg whites that have been beaten to stiff peaks are gently (gently!) folded into the chocolate mixture, poured into a pan and baked. More chocolate chips are sprinkled on top.

Serve these two-ingredient chocolate brownies for dessert or a sweet snack any day of the week – and any time of the day. They're also great for potlucks, cookouts and family get-togethers.

Recipe Notes

  • The 1 2/3 cups chocolate chips is about one 12-ounce package.
  • Be gentle when folding in the egg whites. You don't want to deflate them.
  • Try using dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips in this brownie recipe.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put 1 1/3 cups of the chocolate chips into a bowl. Microwave on high until chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes, stirring one time. Remove and let the chocolate cool for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Stir together the egg yolks with 2 tablespoon of water, then add to the melted chocolate. Whisk well. Set aside. 
  3. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently start to fold the chocolate into the egg whites until all is combined. 
  4. Pour the batter into a 8x8-inch cake pan that's lined with parchment paper that comes up over the sides (this will help you remove them from the pan later). Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  5. Remove and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips. Put back into the oven for 2 more minutes. Remove and spread the chocolate to cover the top or just leave them as they are. Let the brownies cool completely before removing and cutting into squares.

There are no bad brownie recipes but this one is especially amazing!
Elisa Schmitz
Wow, this is truly spectacular. Love that you only need two ingredients to make some seriously decadent brownies! #yum
I don’t get people giving ratings or good ratings and they haven’t even tried the recipe yet and of course the picture looks good there a professional
I love brownies and I love easy but these were a huge disappointment. They tasted like a chocolate flavored dish sponge except not as good. Do yourself a favor and don't use this recipe.
Donna John
We're sorry the recipe didn't work out for you. Maybe you didn't whip the egg whites enough? Again sorry you were disappointed with the results, but hope you'll check out our other brownie recipes. 30seconds.com/search/brownie%2...
