Step 7986 Shot
Step 2

In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the unsalted butter, vegetable oil, water, granulated sugar and chocolate. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and continue to microwave in 15-second increments until the chocolate is completely melted.

Step 7989 Shot
Step 3

Stir in the Dutch-processed cocoa powder. 

Step 7988 Shot
Step 4

Whisk the egg whites until frothy. 

Step 7990 Shot
Step 5

Add the egg whites and the vanilla extract to the melted chocolate mixture. Mix until combined. 

Step 7991 Shot
Step 6

Add the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, nonfat milk powder, baking soda and salt. Combine until a smooth batter forms.

Step 7992 Shot
Step 7

Divide the batter between the two sheet pans. Use an offset spatula to thinly spread the batter to about ⅙ inch thick. Evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter. (See notes 1.) 

Step 7993 Shot
Step 8

Bake for about 10 minutes. Rotate the sheet pans and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the center is set and firm. Remove the brownie brittle from the oven. Use a pizza cutter to score the brownie brittle while it is still warm. If the edges have burnt, use the pizza cutter to score the edges to break off and discard.

Step 7994 Shot
Step 9

Let the brownie brittle cool completely before breaking it into pieces. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk. Enjoy!

Step 7995 Shot

Notes:

  1. It is important to evenly distribute the batter so the brownie brittle bakes evenly. Uneven spreading may result in burnt edges and soft centers.
