I have a confession to make... I've NEVER made brownies from scratch... until today! The ones from the box are just so good. Especially the Ghirardelli ones. Anyway, I found this recipe and knew I had to give it a try. I'm pleased to tell you that these brownies are absolutely delicious!
- 1 cup butter
- 2 1/4 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9"x13" baking dish. In a saucepan, melt the butter and then add the sugar. Cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Do not let the mixture boil.
Place the butter mixture, cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla into a large bowl. Mix until combined.
Stir in the flour and chocolate chips.
Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
