What are 100 Hour Fudgy Brownies? They're brownies that take 100 hours to prepare (with a TON of butter and chocolate). And this video is easily the prettiest, most relaxing, sexiest, and most delicious brownie making video you will ever see. Ever. Like...ever!

Alvin Zhou's YouTube channel is full of cooking and baking. Tuesday night, I was over at my sister and brother-in-law's and they both insisted I watch this video. Not only is it an amazing video to watch, the recipe looks amazing, and the subtitles are funny.

From the video...

I rarely make brownies, but when I do, I like to spend lots of time on them! Espresso infused brown butter, two kinds of chocolate, fluffy whipped sugar, and cold brew make them intensely rich and extremely fudgy. Even though the entire process takes 100 hours, I think it's worth it!


2 sticks unsalted butter (225g)
1 tbsp espresso powder (6g)
Coffee ice cube (30g)

4 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla paste (15g)
2 1/4 cups white sugar (450g)

1/2 cup dutch-processed cocoa powder (45g)
1 tbsp espresso powder (6g)
1 tbsp kosher salt (9g)

8 oz melted 75% cacao chocolate (225g)
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (215g)

3.5 oz chopped milk chocolate (100g)
3.5 oz chopped 75% cacao chocolate (100g)
6 oz chopped 75% cacao chocolate, for topping (170g)

Baked in a 9x13 pan.

Note from me:
The 100 hours actually makes quite a huge difference in the end. Out of curiosity, I've actually baked off a batch immediately to compare to the 100-hour batch, and it's not nearly as delicious to me. It's kinda like watching a movie in 480p while your friends watch it in 4K - still good but could probably be a lot better. (Source)
