  • Author: Crosby’s Molasses
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 16 bite-size brownies 1x
  • Category: Candy & Sweet Treats


Units Scale
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • Sea salt (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by-8-inch metal baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth.
  3. Remove from the heat, add molasses and let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, cocoa and salt in a large bowl and stir until just incorporated. Add the chocolate mixture and stir until combined. Add the flour and fold in until just incorporated, about 20 strokes (no white streaks should remain).
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan (spreading it out and smoothing the top). Bake 30 minutes (until the centre is set). Remove to a wire rack, sprinkle brownies with sea salt (optional) while still warm and let cool at least 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven a littler earlier if you want them to be chewier.
  6. Cut into bite-size pieces ( 1 or 2-inch squares)

    Thanks for the recipe. These are excellent! The molasses really sets off the chocolate flavour even more. My kitchen smells amazing while they are baking!! Perfect for a chocolate lover!

    Delicious. I made these in a mini muffin pan for real one-bite brownies. Very easy. I’ll be using this recipe again.

    This is a great recipe – moist and chewy brownies that the family loves. I double the recipe and place batter into a 9 x 14 pirex dish. If you double it you’ll need to extend the baking time to about 45 mins ++….test the centre with a toothpick until it is clean.

    Hi Bridget. I live in Dubai and my gf’s mom brought me a big jar of molasses from Egypt as a gift and it been in my kitchen for a long bit. Was looking for ways to use it and found ur brownies. I just made them now and they are amazing. I had some dulce de lecee that I mixed with some Hungarian cream cheese, dolloped and swirled on the rope last minute before I put it in the oven. It was great as it cut in the sweetness of the brownies. I think molasses is my new secret ingredient :)

    nice recipe….I wish I had watched the video for mixing the eggs, sugar, vanilla and baking powder……didn’t follow that order so my baking powder did not really mix in

    turned out fine though, will try it again

    I made them and they are absolutely delicious. I had to leave them in for about 10 more minutes but they are still nice and chewy. Every oven is different.
