Perfect 'Small Batch Fudge Brownies' Are an Ideal Treat for Two

Small batch brownies are exactly the thing we didn’t know we needed today. We never seem to have any trouble finishing a big box of brownies, but we would prefer to avoid the challenge. TikTok content creator @freshbeanbakery shows us how to make chewy and chocolaty homemade brownies for two.

You can avoid all the shame by making a petite batch of brownies, instead of the whole box.

Wow, those look every bit as fudgy and delicious as a full batch. We love learning about these portion-controlled, scratch-made recipes. It’s so nice to whip up a homemade treat without having enough to feed an army. This fabulous recipe uses 1/4 C. butter, 2 Tbsp of cocoa powder, 3/4 C. chocolate chips, 1/2 C. sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/3 C. flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsp. espresso powder. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 8x4 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This recipe is so darn easy, and those brownies look so amazing!

The audience was thrilled to learn about this easy dessert idea. Viewer @zeinab commented, “I made these the other day, and they came out amazing, thank you!!” Good to know! Another TikTok fan, @HannahWatson added, “I love that you mostly post small batch cooking, because my husband and I never need recipes that are 12 portions, for example.” We agree with her completely!

This is a perfectly decadent treat without the debauchery. It's the kind indulgence we've been looking for!
