Copycat Starbucks Brownies Recipe:

We like to go to Starbucks for their yummy coffee and their desserts. My kids always want to get their Chocolate Brownies but with my large family that gets expensive. So I decided to make them at home.

I love to come up with copycat recipes for our favorite restaurant recipes and I am glad I decided to make this copycat brownie recipe. The ingredients are simple and everything combines in one bowl making this an easy recipe to make.

There is no need to make a box brownie mix, when you can make brownies from scratch with this copycat recipe. These brownies are rich, fudgy, full of chocolate and taste amazing.

How to Make Starbucks Brownies: 

  • Prepare oven and baking dish – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8X8 baking dish with parchment paper.

Mixing the ingredients together

  • Top with Chocolate Chips – Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly on top and gently press them down into the batter. 
  • Bake Brownies – Bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (make sure it’s not inserted into a chocolate chip).  
  • Cool, Serve and Enjoy – Cool the brownies on a wire rack for 2 hours before cutting them and serving them.

Tips for Starbucks Double Chocolate Brownies:

  • Cocoa Powder – Make sure when adding the cocoa powder to the mixture that there is no lumps. You may need to sift in the cocoa powder to the egg mixture.
  • Chocolate Chips – We used chocolate chips in this recipe, but you can also use chocolate chunks. We recommend staying with semi-sweet so the chewy brownies are not to sweet. You can also use dark chocolate chips.
  • Oil – When we make this recipe, we stick with the unsalted butter ingredient. We do not recommend using vegetable oil or canola oil.
  • Brownies to Cool – After the fudgy brownies are done baking, allow them to cool before serving.
  • Brownie Batter – Do not overmix the batter and combine only until well mixed. It will be thick but this is normal.
