The Perfect Recipe to Celebrate National Brownie Day

Brownie lovers, rejoice! December 8th is National Brownie Day! What better way to celebrate this sweet day than by whipping up a batch of irresistibly fudgy brownies using our imported couverture chocolate from our Eleven o’one line.

When it comes to baking the perfect brownie, the quality of the chocolate is non-negotiable. Enter Eleven o’one Couverture Chocolate, our specially curated line of premium European chocolate known for its rich flavor & smooth texture. This line offers five varieties of Belgian Chocolate offering a little something for everyone. 

For this delicious recipe, we’re opting for our Eleven o’one Sixty Dark Couverture Chocolate to give our brownies a rich, decadent, dark chocolate flavor with its 60% cocoa content. 

For those eager to celebrate National Brownie Day with us, let’s dig into this foolproof brownie recipe!

Brownie Recipe:


  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Microwavable bowl
  • Silicone Spatulas
  • 8x8 or 9x13 baking pan (8x8 pan will give you a thicker brownie)
  • Parchment paper



  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Grease & line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt your Eleven o’one Sixty Dark Couverture Chocolate & butter together in 30 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, but not harden.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together your sugar & eggs until well combined. Add the vanilla extract & mix well.
  4. Gently stir the melted chocolate mixture into the egg-sugar mixture until fully incorporated.
  5. Sift the flour & salt & fold them in until just combined. 
    PRO TIP: Be careful not to overmix.
  6. If desired, add chopped nuts, chocolate chips or our Eleven o’one Salted Caramel Flakes into your batter for extra texture & flavor.
  7. Pour the brownie batter into your prepared baking pan & spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes. To check if they’re ready, insert a toothpick into the center of the pan & if the toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, they are ready!
    PRO TIP: Given the irresistible gooey consistency of brownies, your toothpick will not come out completely clean, so be sure not to over bake!
  9. Allow your brownies to fully cool before cutting to enjoy! 

Pair these brownies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra special treat! You can also top these off with a delicious ganache made with the same delectable couverture chocolate!
