This recipe is so easy to put together (seriously, less than 5 minutes if you pull all the ingredients out before you start stirring) and I normally have all the ingredients on hand to make them.

Not sure if brownies are a Christmas treat, but I keep a few batches of these fudgy chocolate brownies in the freezer to pull out when I need something quick. No one has ever complained so I keep making them.

Now I whip up some batches of these brownies and cut them into squares then wrap them individually for lunches. I pull them out of the freezer as I need them. And when you need that extra somethin’ somethin’ with your chocolate ice cream with chocolate drizzle? Yeah, add a brownie or two to your bowl. Its just want you needed.

These brownies are the perfect addition to my meal plan, especially since they are freezer friendly.

Author Diana L.


  • 1 cup butter soft
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 aluminum baking pan with parchment paper. Spray the pan where the parchment paper does not cover with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract together until well combined. A whisk works well for this.
  3. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. You don’t want to over mix the batter.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  5. Cook in the oven for about 40 minutes, until the edges start to get crunchy and start to pull away from the side of the pan.
  6. Allow the brownies to cool completely before lifting the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper. Place on a large cutting board and use a serrated knife to cute your brownies. You can also place the brownies in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up before cutting.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Cut the brownies into squares and wrap them individually in plastic food wrap before storing in a freezer safe bag. Take the brownies out as you need them.
