How to Make Brownies From Scratch

  2. Mix until combined and the chocolate is perfectly melted.
  3. Slowly add the sugar in little by little. Before you add anything else you need to let the eggs and sugar rise and turn pale yellow in color.
  4. Add some of the sugar mixture into the chocolate, so it cools off.
  5. Once it is at room temperature, add the chocolate mixture back into the standing mixer bowl with the rest of the sugar and eggs.
