Uber Chocolate Brownies

Printable Recipe

All I have to say is, thank God for awesome dessert websites like MBA. She had a Valentine's Day dessert round-up and I found an awesome brownie recipe here. I, of course, tweaked it to what I had in my pantry and used a different sized baking dish because my 8x8 has something else in it. Ya'll have got to check out the original recipe here. I must admit, mine taste amazing but hers look absolutely gooey and delicious!

This brownie looked simply amazing and it was so easy to make, too. It's in the oven cooking and this will be the first "bad" thing I've eaten since my Whole30 Challenge. I wanted to treat myself to a homemade brownie. I was not going to sit down with a few oreo's and call that a treat. I haven't ever frozen left over brownies so I'm going to try it this time, because, gosh-darn it, there will be left overs! The best part about these brownies is they don't make you feel sick to your stomach from it being too sweet. It's a great recipe!

Ayden wanted ice-cream so that's what he got. Me, I'd rather just have the brownie and leave the dairy out!
1cup all-purpose flour
1tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1/2cup butter (unsalted. = 1 stick)
1/4cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
*For the middle of the brownie*
3/4cup-1cup chocolate chips
Preheat over to 350F.
In a large bowl, stir the flour, salt and baking powder together.
In a microwave safe container (I used a 2-cup glass measuring cup), melt the butter and 1/4cup chocolate chips. I did 1 minute and it melted together just fine. Stir until the chocolate has completely melted. If needed, zap it another 10 seconds.

Stir the sugar into the butter/chocolate mixture.
In another small dish, scramble the eggs and vanilla and then mix thoroughly with the butter/chocolate/sugar mixture.

Once thoroughly combined, incorporate into the dry mixture but don't over mix.
Spray an 8x8 pan and add 2/3 of the mixture then sprinkle the 3/4-1cup extra chocolate chips. Cover with remaining brownie batter.

Bake 20-30 minutes until the top is set. Toothpick test won't work well here since there's chocolate chips in the middle.
Don't forget to let your cute kid lick the bowl!
