I love chocolate.

I enjoy baking with chocolate.  I buy chocolate in large quantities.  I buy chocolate chips in 5 pound bags.

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

Ingredients

¾ cups sugar

2 Tablespoons water

1/3 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

12 ounces chocolate chips

2 eggs

¾ cups flour

¼ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

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!
