  • Baking pan
  • Parchment paper or cooking spray
  • whisk
  • Large mixing bowl


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 8 oz coarsely chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 cup molasses
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Melt the butter and chopped semi-sweet chocolate in a medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and pour into a large mixing bowl. Cool until slightly cool, about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8"×8" or 9"×9" baking pan with parchment paper or lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • Whisk in the sugar and molasses into the chocolate mixture. Add in the eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth after adding each one. Whisk in the vanilla and then fold in the flour, cocoa powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt.
  • Once fully combined, fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out without batter sticking to it.
  • Remove from oven and let brownies cool completely. Once cooled, lift the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang and place on a cutting board. Slice into squares and frost, if desired.
