Once you taste these brownies, you’ll want to abandon boxed brownie mix. These brownies are chocolaty, moist, easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious. If you’re a true chocolate lover like me, you won’t be disappointed. It’s another fabulous recipe from allrecipes.com.
½ cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons water
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8×8 inch square pan.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the chocolate mixture. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies set up. Do not overbake! Cool in pan and cut into squares.
My Notes: I suggest that you temper the eggs before adding them to the warm chocolate mixture or allow the chocolate mixture to cool a bit so you don’t end up with scrambled eggs in the batter.
I used a 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips, melting the 1 ½ cups as the recipe calls for and adding the extra ½ cup to the cooled batter so I could have chocolate chunks in the brownies. (If you do add the extra chocolate chips, toss them in a teaspoon of flour to coat them so they won’t sink to the bottom of the pan.)
