    Truth be told, I was the ONLY one in my family excited about these. My husband shook his head no when I presented the idea. The kids… they started gagging and acting like I wanted to feed them dead bugs or something.

    But I just had a feeling they would be amazing.

    And for once, I was right! There is something really magical about all the rich ooey gooey chocolate paired with the rhubarb. It’s truly a match made in heaven!

    Here is a little video on how I put it together: (as reader Charlotte pointed out, I don’t have the part where I added the flour/cocoa mixture because I forgot to hit record. Sorry! But as always, the video is just a playful way to show you a bit about the recipe.)

    And here is the recipe!

    • 2 c 350g rhubarb, finely diced
    • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup or 113g unsalted
    • 1/4 c 45g mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1 1/2 c 300g white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tsp. McCormick® vanilla extract
    • 1/2 c 63g cocoa powder
    • 1 c 125g all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    1. Preheat over to 350 and prepare your 8x8 inch pan. ( I baked mine in a convection oven for 31 minutes.)
    2. In a saucepan, add butter and rhubarb and simmer over low heat until butter is melted.
    3. Add in chocolate chips then immediately remove from heat. Stir until all chocolate chips are melted.
    4. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Add a spoonful of the rhubarb mixture to the egg mixture to temper it. (you don't want your egg to scramble)

    5. Now add your tempered egg mixture to the saucepan of rhubarb and mix well.
    6. Add in cocoa, flour and salt and mix until just combined.
    7. Bake for 25-35 minutes in a prepared 8x8 inch pan, or until a toothpick comes out with minimal crumb

    So what was the final consensus?

    Everyone… even my non-chocolate liking husband… liked these. The kids loved them. Hubby thought that the rhubarb was the perfect compliment to the brownies. Everyone also remarked on how awesome the crispy top layer was with the ooey gooey center.

    I truly hope you will try these because I just know you will enjoy them!

    A big thank you the Travis & Molly for provided the fresh-from-the-garden rhubarb!

    This is brilliant! Your family is a lucky bunch (even if they didn’t realize it at first). Give me all the tart-chocolately-buttery bars please!

    That is a marvelous idea! What another great way to use rhubarb!

    I would never think to make something like this! Yum!!

    Watched the video twice. Never did see the flour added. I don’t see it mentioned in the directions.

      Oops!!! I just saw it in the directions. Amazing how we can overlook something. Sorry about that.

      It’s in the ingredients and directions. 🙂 I don’t have it in the video because I forgot to hit “record”. Sorry!

    I love love tarty fruit in my brownies so I am really excited about this recipe! The tops are perfect!

    I haven’t tried rhubarb yet! But this sounds like a good starting point with these brownies!! 😉

    Love the use of rhubarb! You are so darn creative!

    Rhubarb brownies?!!! I love these, Amanda!!! and am dying because I want to stuff 3 of these in my mouth! NOW!

    I LOVE rhubarb so I have no doubt these are amazing!

    Who would of thought, right? Hope you saved me a piece or two! Or do I need to make them myself, YES!

    Those brownies. Awesome!! 🙂

    I love that you used rhubarb in a non-pie dessert!

    I love this idea so much. I definitely need to give it a try.

    Fantastic idea, can’t wait to try!! Please clarify though, did you use a 9×9 pan or 8×8 pan? It says prepare 9×9 pan in step 1 of directions but step 7 says to bake in 8×8.

    I just sent this recipe to my dad! Not only does he LOVE brownies, but he grows rhubarb in his garden, so I feel like these are perfect for him!

    Wow that is an amazing idea! I’ve only ever had it stewed and made into jam,, but I’m definitely going to try this next year!

    Wow…I just baked it and it is amazone. Thank you!

      YAY!!! This is one of my favorite recipes of all time… but I have a hard time getting others to want to even try it! So glad you liked it!
