Step 1: Ingriedents
- 1 cup unsalted butter (that's 2 sticks)
- 2 ¼ cups of sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 ¼ cups cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups AP flour
- Chocolate chips
Step 2: The Totally-Worth-It-Extra-Step
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. When it's melted, add the sugar and stir to combine. Let it cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring, then poor the mixture in a bowl. It should be a shiny and thick mixture.
Step 3: Time for All the Mixing
Add the flour and mix until combined. This part is tricky if you are mixing by hand like me—I kneaded the flour in with my spatula as to not have a flour bomb explode all over my counter. The batter gets very thick so it will really help burn some calories so you can eat these brownies.
Add as many chocolate chips as you like and stir them in. I just grabbed quite a few handfuls and threw them in the batter and left some to sprinkle over top. You can also add anything else into these brownies that you'd like; the first time I made them I added walnuts and I highly recommend that. The batter is thick enough that it would be really hard for the extra treats to sink to the bottom.
Step 4: The End Is Near
Let them cool and then dig in! They are so delicious!
