Hunka Chunka Chocolate Brownies

The 4th of July calls for ice cream. Ice cream to vanquish the blazing Texas sun.

Lots and lots of ice cream.

But sometimes, ice cream gets lonely and needs a hunky companion…

Behold the most dapper dessert of all: a chocolate chunk filled hunk named Mr. Brownie! 😀

I came across this awesome recipe, but was lacking a few of the ingredients, so I made some substitutions. They came out fantastic! Enjoy!!

Hunka Chunka Chocolate Brownies

Gluten free

(adapted from this epic recipe)

Ingredients:

13 squares Ghirardelli 100% cacao chocolate

1/2 cup ghee or butter

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350*F.

2. In a bowl, melt ghee and 6 squares of the chocolate in the microwave. It took my microwave about a minute and 30 seconds. Stir well.

3. Add in the honey and stir until it’s a smooth consistency.

4. Stir in the beaten eggs, flour, and vanilla. I used about 20 drops of vanilla stevia.

5. Break remaining 7 squares of chocolate into tiny chunks. I put them in a plastic bag and used a hammer 😀

6. Fold the chunks of chocolate into your brownie mixture.

7. Spray an 8×8 pan with nonstick Pam and bake mixture for 20-25 minutes. Depending on your oven, this will vary, so be sure to do the “toothpick” test and bake until the toothpick comes out clean after poking it in the center.

8. Cool and cut into 9 brownies.

Enjoy plain, crumbled in a smoothie, or topped with ice cream and sprinkles! You could also add walnuts, chocolate chips or pecans to bring in another texture element. They have a rich flavor with hints of intense dark chocolate from the chunks. Very dense and delicious! Hope you enjoy!!

  1. I flipping love how simple this recipe is. YOU GO, Z! 😀
    And even though I won’t be celebrating the 4th of July this year (I’m in another country, foo. lol xD), I’ll probably still make this and enjoy it with ice cream when I get back. I don’t know what’s happened to me, but lately I’ve gotten super addicted to sugar, lol.
    Thanks for being the enabler to my addiction. I appreciate it. 😛 ❤
    ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY, SWEET ONE. 🙂
