Hi, everyone! I wanted to post a quick recipe for the most delicious brownies EVER! Well, at least in my opinion. I am not a cake like brownie person, and a lot of recipes I’ve used in the past have always disappointed (giving me a cake like rather than a fudgy brownie). I wanted a recipe that gave me decadent fudgy brownies. This recipe is it! Please note that these brownies are not for the faint of heart. This is not a healthy brownie recipe. This is the real deal. Yes, you can substitute with apple sauce, pumpkin, or splenda – but why? These are the brownies you make when you want to be bad, really bad. These are sinner brownies…. oooh, I think I just named my brownies! So, go ahead and give into temptation, just this once. Make these bad boys as directed! You will thank me for it!
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease an 8×11 pan. This is the perfect size pan. It makes the brownies at just the right thickness.
Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla into a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
In another bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, and salt. After dry ingredients are mixed slowly combine with egg mixture until blended.Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or chunks. Take spatula and begin to fold chips into batter. I do not mix right into the batter before I put into the pan because all the chocolate chips usually go right to the bottom. If you sprinkle on top and fold in, they distribute more evenly.Bake in preheated oven (350) for 35-40 minutes. Mine were perfect at 35 minutes. Keep in mind these are fudgy brownies. Don’t keep these in the oven longer than 40 minutes. Once removed from oven, let cool. Cut and serve. Extra yummy when served with vanilla ice cream on top! Enjoy!
