You want super chocolaty brownies? How about brownies that are borderline fudge? A taste so deep that you’ll think expensive fancy dark chocolate must have been melted down to make these treats? Well, if you like all of the above, these brownies are for you!

My brother and I love brownies, so I always play with different recipes, trying to get one that both of us will love. Usually I’d slice out the chewy corners, but with this recipe, any piece is perfect. Don’t worry when making it…the batter will look burned and gross at first. But stay with it! I promise that despite the lack of aesthetics in the beginning, once baked, you’ll fall in love. Make sure that your 9×9 pan is lined with parchment paper and sprayed with nonstick spray (for some added stick prevention).

11 tablespoons butter

1 ¼ cups sugar

¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

½ cup flour

¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a double boiler, melt the butter with the cocoa powder slowly. Add in the sugar and salt. Mix so everything is combined. The batter will look grainy, but don’t worry, that will change. Remove from heat.

Whisk in the vanilla extract and then one egg at a time, stirring quickly.

Stir in the flour until you can no longer see any white. Add ½ cup of the chocolate chips. Stir to combine.

Pour the batter into a prepared 9×9 inch pan (parchment paper is necessary!). Spread so it’s an even thickness throughout the pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.

Put into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until your desired doneness.

Remove the brownies by pulling up on the parchment paper. Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack, and then cut into squares.

Serve and enjoy!
