I love chocolate.
I like hot cocoa in the winter and chocolate milk in the summer.
I like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
And, I like chocolate sundaes.
Today I’d like to share my recipe for Double Chocolate Brownies. They’re double chocolate because they have chocolate chips in the batter. I can’t take credit for these, because I found this recipe years ago on the bag of Nestle’s© Chocolate Chips. They always have the best recipes. And, no mixer needed. That makes them even better because it’s kinda therapeutic. I like to use my wooden spoons and spatulas, it feels so grandma-vintage-like.
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
¾ cups sugar
2 Tablespoons water
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 ounces chocolate chips
¾ cups flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9” square pan.
In a small saucepan combine sugar, water and butter. Bring just to a boil.
Lower the heat and add the vanilla and only 6 ounces (1 cup) of the chocolate chips.
Mix until smooth.
Remove from heat. I transfer this to another bowl and let this cool a bit because you will add eggs and I don’t like it to be hot when I add the eggs.
Add eggs, one at a time. This means, add an egg, mix, add the other egg, mix.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Blend the flour mixture gradually into the chocolate mixture.
Stir in the remaining 6 ounces (1 cup) of chocolate chips. Spread evenly into the greased pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool completely, (ha!) and then cut.
Enjoy. I do!
