These Brownies are super fudge-y and delicious! They take no time at all to bake and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry! It is also the most versatile recipe too! You can ice them or throw in candies, nuts and other goodies in the mix and then bake them. You can serve them warm a la mode – or even eat them at cold or at room temperature!
- 3 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 2 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 lbs) Butter
- 6 whole eggs at room temperature
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup all purpose flour
the first step is to melt your chocolate with your butter. I put them both in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for about 2 mins and 30 secs until the butter melts completely. Mix your flour and your baking powder in a small separate bowl. Once the butter and chocolate are finished, mix well until completely smooth.
The next step is to mix in your powdered sugar. I make sure I sift my powdered sugar first to ensure no lumps. I like to do this step before adding the eggs because it makes a nice paste and helps dissolve the sugar. Also, I can feel free to mix it as long as I’d like without worrying about over mixing since the flour hasn’t been added yet.
Next add the eggs and vanilla
Grease an non-stick baking pan very well! I use a butter flavored vegetable oil spray. Line the pan with parchment paper and spray that as well.
Bake at 350 for about10-15 minutes. Do NOT wait until the toothpick comes out dry. The way I test my brownies is to touch the top. If it leaves a light indent but feels firm I pull them out. They will continue to cook once they are out of the oven. If you over bake them they will not be fudge-y but very cake like and dry.
