One-Bowl Chocolate Chunk Brownies

I absolutely loathe cleaning up the kitchen after I bake. With tons of pots, pans, bowls, spatulas, whisks, ramekins, and everything in between sitting in the sink, it can take forever to wash it all! DSC_0220

After seeing the gorgeous brownies in the photo above, you must think they require a bunch of bowls for mixing and whipping and fancy stuff like that. But you’re wrong. These babies are ONE-BOWL. Yes, it’s true. Only one single bowl is required to make a whole batch of chewy, gooey, chocolate-y brownies!

Up close, especially, you can see just how amazing it is that this recipe only uses one bowl. These brownies have everything you want: a crispy exterior, a rich, chewy middle, and chocolate chunks to spare! Mmmm… I might have to whip up another batch right now…

When the brownies came out of the oven and I let them cool for a bit, I used a handy-dandy powdered sugar duster from Crate & Barrel to sprinkle the tops. It totally adds another layer of sophistication and an air of fanciness to your classic bake sale treat!

The next time you’re scrambling to make the perfect sweet the night before a bake sale, party, or friend’s birthday, simply pull out one bowl 🙂 and make a batch of Juliet’s Sweets brownies – you’re sure to get rave reviews!
