If you’re an edges-only brownie fan, then Chewy Chocolate Brownie Bark just kicked those often contentious “Can I have the corner piece?” conversations to the curb.
This quick and easy recipe needs little explanation beyond its title: It’s chewy. It’s chocolatey. It’s a brownie. And it’s got that bark-like crunch. Throw it all together and you have a slightly crispy, most definitely chewy, chocolate chip-topped masterpiece that makes it impossible to stop at just a taste.

- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 Tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 cup chocolate chips, divided
- Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until they're light and frothy. Add the sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder (optional), oil and vanilla, whisking until smooth.
- Whisk the dry milk powder into the egg mixture, then whisk in the flour mixture, just until combined. Stir in ½ cup of chocolate chips.
- Pour the batter onto the parchment paper. Using an offset spatula, spread the batter as thin as possible, and then sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips atop the batter.
- Bake the bark for 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven, and using a sharp knife, cut it into squares. (Do not separate the pieces.)
- Return the bark to the oven and bake it for 5 more minutes.
- Remove the bark from the oven and allow it to cool completely on the pan before breaking apart the pieces.
