So a few weeks ago, my friend Roan posted a recipe for Chocolate Chip Brownies on her blog. Of course I had to try them right away. I knew, based on the ingredient list, that they would be scrumptious. And they were!
But they were more of a "blondie" than a brownie. I wanted that texture, that consistency, but in an all chocolate brownie. So what did I do? I simply added cocoa to the recipe, and finally, FINALLY, achieved the perfect brownie. We've made them over and over since then. Mark has come to expect them on weekends!
One of the best things about this recipe is that it's SUPER easy. You can actually memorize the recipe after a few times of making it!
- 2 sticks butter
- 1 box brown sugar (2 1/4 cups)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 12 oz. (1 full bag) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream together butter, brown sugar, eggs & vanilla. Mix in flour & cocoa powder till combined well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for approximately 35 minutes, or until set in the center.
