THESE ARE AMAZING.
I haven't done a dessert post in a while, and while I was trying to eat healthy.... you can only go so long without chocolate. This adaptation for brownies is so perfect. I admit, you have to like rich, fudgey brownies. I am not a big fan a dry, or cake like brownies. I want to feel like I am eating brownie batter. And chocolate chunks are a must in all of my baking, they are soooo much better than just chocolate chips. So with that being said, this is a sure fire way to gain a few pounds. Just in time for summer? LOL but seriously, someone come to my house and take these away from me.
Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies
3/4 cups butter
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 ounces dark chocolate squares
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8 pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl mix eggs, sugar and vanilla, whisking until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat 2 inches of water in a saucepan over high heat, and bring to a boil. Place large metal bowl on top of pot, add butter and 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate. Melt butter and chocolate together, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Once cooled, add cocoa powder and combine until smooth.
Add flour and stir until smooth.
Slowly add egg mixture into chocolate mixture. Beat together until just combined.
Using a large knife, chop dark chocolate squares into large chunks. Set aside with chocolate chips.
Add half of the chopped dark chocolate chunks chocolate mix into brownie batter.
Once mixed, pour 3/4 of mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and chunks, and pour remaining batter into pan.
Bake in oven for 25-28 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes before you eat the whole pan :)
This recipe made a little too much batter for a 8x8 pan, so put the remaining into a mini muffin tin and sprinkled with sea salt. For Double Chocolate Brownies with Sea Salt....I love salt and chocolate....one of my fav combos. Try it if you want!
