Easy Fudge Brownies

One pot easy brownies – I could make these daily and be a very happy person; chubby but happy!  You can get these in the oven just as fast as a box mix, but these are much richer and chocolateier (yes that is a word).

I brought these into work and people were raving all day.  By far the best brownie recipe I have ever come across (this might sound dramatic but I have been trying different brownie recipes for years now).  I will use this recipe as a base from now on and add fun things like nuts, caramel, or anything else I find in my pantry.

They are super rich and taste like they are made with dark chocolate even though they are not.  They are not super sweet either; lots of sugar in them but not too sweet.  I am sure they are not recommended by your dentist, but what is…

All I can say is TRY THESE and DO NOT over cook them!

Yield: 16 brownie squares

1½ Sticks Salted Butter (12 Tablespoons) – I used unsalted
1 Cup Brown Sugar
¾ Cup White Sugar
3 Eggs – room temp
1 Egg Yolk – room temp
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
⅓ Cup Flour
1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sized pot, melt the butter on the stove top over medium heat.
  3. Remove from heat, then whisk in brown and white sugar until smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes.  Make sure its not too hot, you don’t want to make scrambled eggs.
  4. Add the eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
  5. Add the cocoa powder and flour and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pans and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes back with a few moist crumbs attached. Allow to cool or eat directly out of the pan because you have no self control (at least, that’s what I do.)
  7. Grab a glass of ice cold milk and enjoy!
