This chocolate lovers’ sundae starts with a decadent and fudgy bittersweet chocolate brownie that’s loaded with dark chocolate chips. We also top it with dark chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate-covered nuts for the full effect.



  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚ F. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with foil or parchment paper, leaving an overhang on 2 sides. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Combine the butter and 12 ounces chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, until melted and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in both sugars until dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat, then whisk in the eggs and vanilla until fully combined. Whisk in the flour mixture until the batter is completely smooth.
  3. Spread the batter evenly in the baking dish, then scatter the remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips on top. Bake until the top has a slightly matte finish and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 30 to 35 minutes (these are fudgy brownies). Transfer the pan to a rack and let cool completely (or let cool 15 minutes and serve slightly warm).
  4. Slice the brownies and serve with chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate-covered nuts and/or other sundae toppings.
