  • 2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar plus more for serving
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet or milk chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 325° and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat.
  • In a sifter set over a bowl, measure and add the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Sift into the bowl and set aside.
  • Into a sauce pan over low heat, melt the chocolate and butter. Once melted, remove off of the heat and stir in the brown sugar and milk. When cool, whisk in the egg white and vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the the wet and using a rubber spatula, mix until combined.
  • Pour the brownie mixture onto the silicone mat and using an offset spatula, spread evenly and thin.
  • Bake on the middle rack of your preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until set and crisp.
  • Allow to cool completely before breaking into about 20 pieces an dusting with powdered sugar.


For the ultimate crispy brittle, divide batter among 2 pans and reduce the time by 5 minutes or so.
