Cocoa Brownies #Choctoberfest 2018

This post was sponsored by Imperial Sugar.

Yesterday I mentioned it’s #Choctoberfest! What’s #Choctoberfest, you might ask? Well, this is the annual fall celebration of chocolate recipes. Of course, we love chocolate recipes all the time, but during #Choctoberfest, I join over 100 other bloggers to post yummy chocolate recipes and talk about sponsors, who give away some awesome prizes. Check out the amazing giveaway here

With two small kids there is never a shortage of things to do. Laundry. Picking up toys. Making meals. Snuggles. You get so caught up in the now I sometimes forget about the bigger picture.  My world is where my kids are and what they are doing. Now. This second.  I forget things around the world continue and existed way before my little ones came along. Take Imperial Sugar for instance. 

In 1843, along the banks of Oyster Creek in what would later become Sugar Land, the Williams brothers built a mule-powered sugar mill, began grinding sugar cane, and a Texas legacy was born. The Imperial Sugar Company is the one of the oldest continuously operating companies in the State of Texas and was founded by one of the original 100 families brought to the state by Stephen F. Austin.

For 175 years, Imperial Sugar has been a trusted name in family kitchens all across the south. Sweet things happen when people come together in the kitchen, and that’s why Imperial Sugar has been at the heart of family traditions and celebrations for generations. We’re the secret ingredient in family-favorite recipes handed down from one generation to another. Home cooks know that when you bake with love and Imperial Sugar, that’s when memories are made.

Imperial Sugar provides high-quality sugar and sweetener products and over 100 years of time-tested recipes. Our family of products includes granulated sugar, light and dark brown sugar, free-flowing sugar, powdered sugar, sugar shakers and Steviacane® (Stevia + sugar blend). Imperial Sugar products are 100% pure cane sugar, non-GMO and provide consistently delicious results.

I used brown sugar in this recipe. In all of the brownie recipes I have made over the years I never, ever used brown sugar.  What was I doing?!?!  These are fudgy and gooey in all of the right ways.

Cocoa Brownies

by Emily Morris
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Keywords: bake chocolate brownies
Ingredients (16 brownies)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
  • 8 ounces melted butter
  • 11/4 cups cocoa, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.

In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it's done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it's mostly cool.
