Fudgy Brownies

Two  years ago, my friend Cara got me a book called Perfect Pies. It has all kinds of recipes for some delicious pies but the one that caught my attention was a brownie recipe. I always felt that a really great brownie recipe is a must for any baking enthusiast (which I am) and was excited to try it.

It was a little more time consuming than just running out and buying a box. My grocery store didn't have unsweetened chocolate but I ended up finding some at Target. The chocolate frosting recipe was from my KitchenAid mixer book so I was little nervous the flavors wouldn't go well together.

I am glad to say they went great together! They were so good and gooey without being overly sweet. The Husband said they were better than his moms which is a huge deal. As always, the pictures do the food absolutely no justice. I will post the frosting at a later time.

Chocolate Brownies
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
12 tbs. salted butter
1 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
4 large eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter together. You will have to really keep an eye on it and stir constantly. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside.

2. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and gradually add the sugar. Gradually add the dry mixture to the egg mixture.

3. Stir the vanilla into the chocolate and then add chocolate mixture to the batter. Once combined, add chocolate chips and stir again.

4. Pour the mixture into a 9x13 pan and cook at 350 for 24 minutes. The recipe says 24 minutes but I did 20 because I like them gooey.
