If there is one thing that gets requested more than the rest, it's got to be brownies. Whether it's this version with normal cocoa powder or the dark chocolate version they are always gone quickly. Good thing too...I like brownies myself. Get them away from me... Who am I kidding? I know damn well I'm going to eat some brownies. I indulge too...that's why they are cut so small; so I can trick myself into thinking I've eaten three brownies, when I've only eaten three bites. I'm sly like that. Good thing I am also forgetful.
Cutting them small also allowed me to put them on a skewer along with strawberries, blueberries, and marshmallow when I was asked to bring a dessert to a Memorial Day get-together. Get it, red strawberries, blue blueberries (never eat blueberries which aren't blue...life lesson), and white marshmallows? They mimic the colors of the American flag (for those readers who aren't from around these here parts). Where do brownies come into play in the color scheme? Who the hell knows, but really, who the hell cares? Oh wait...flag poles are installed in dirt...brownies make up the dirt. There, riddle solved.
p.s. Despite how awesome I might appear online, mistakes happen. If you happen to spot one on this recipe, save your fellow cooks a disaster and let me know by using the contact form.
Easy Ultimate Fudge Brownies
- Preheat oven to 350 degree.
- Grease a 13x9 pan (I use a pyrex glass pan greased with butter).
- In a glass dish, melt the butter in the microwave for 1-2 minutes
- Using a mixer, combine the melted butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Mix until creamy.
- In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Sift using a wire whisk or sifter.
- On low speed, alternate adding in the eggs and dry mixture to the butter and sugar. Do not over mix.
- Place the brownie batter into the greased pan.
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter and, using a rubber spatula, gently press them down into the batter.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes or until the top is slightly crispy.
- Allow them to cool before cutting.
