It makes perfect sense that adding a can would make brownies so rich and fudgy. Serve them on their own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.
Making the Brownies
This recipe is super simple to put together. All you need is a mixing bowl and a spatula.
Starting with melted butter means there is no waiting for butter to soften and no electric mixer required. Plus it makes stirring easy. There is no need to get a workout stirring the batter!
The recipe calls for brown sugar because I like the depth of flavor it brings. However, you can used granulated sugar if that is all you have on hand.
I used a standard cocoa powder in these pictures. If you like a darker chocolate color, feel free to use dutched cocoa powder or black cocoa powder.
For a cakier brownie, you can increase the baking powder to 3/4 or even 1 teaspoon. However, one of the joys of this recipe is how fudgy they are. So you may want to try one of my other brownie recipes instead.
You can also use your favorite kind of chocolate chip. Little Dude prefers milk chocolate, so that is what we used. However semi-sweet, dark or even peanut butter chips would be delicious.
If you only have a 9×9-inch pan instead of an 8 inch square, you can use that instead. The brownies will just be a little bit thinner and will take a couple less minutes to bake.

Yes, brownies freeze well. Just wrap them well with plastic wrap or place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.
