Make It Yourself: Brownies

April 13, 2012

Once you’ve made brownies from scratch it’s hard to go back to the original version. They are ooey, gooey rich and delicious. The best part to me is that I can have 1/2 the portion I did with a boxed brownie and feel completely satisfied. Unlike box brownies, these stay chewy down to the very last one.

Ingredients (source)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325°

Line a 9×13 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray very, very generously with cooking spray. Melt chocolate and butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat. Remove from heat and whisk both sugars into the chocolate mix. Add in eggs, one at a time and then add vanilla. Whisk until combined. Stir in flour and salt until evenly incorporated and pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake 35-40 minutes until center is set and a toothpick placed 2 inches away from edge comes out clean. Let brownies cool completely before cutting into squares.

**If you want to make milk chocolate brownies, use 2 cups milk chocolate morsels instead of 1 cup milk and 1 cup semisweet.
