  • 110g (or 1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup moist brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks, reserve some for topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C). Grease a baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, thoroughly mix the melted butter with both sugars.
  3. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Gently fold in the dry ingredients until just mixed. Avoid overmixing.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate chunks on top.
  6. For melted chocolate chunks on top, add them after baking, not before.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. If your oven runs hot, consider reducing the baking time to prevent drying out the bars.
  8. The bars are done when the edges are lightly browned, and the center is still soft.
  9. Allow the pan to cool completely before cutting into bars. Optionally, sprinkle with sea salt flakes for a gourmet touch.
