Mother's Day Chocolate Cocoa Brownies with Ghirardelli Chocolate SQUARES

Servings: 9



  • 9 Ghirardelli SQUARES, either Milk Chocolate Caramel or Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel
  • 3/4 cup Butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 cup Light brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs, large
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cup Ghirardelli Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 cup All-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Remove from microwave, stir in sugar, and melt both for 30 seconds.
  • Stir again and melt for 60 seconds more. Remove mixture from microwave and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Once cooled, place into large mixing bowl and add in eggs, vanilla extract, and salt. Last, fold in cocoa powder and flour.
  • Pour batter into a parchment lined 8"x 8" pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool for 15 minutes before lightly pressing 9 Ghirardelli SQUARES into the tops of the cocoa brownies. The squares will magically melt just slightly so that they stick to the tops of the brownies.
  • Cut into 9 brownies and serve!
