I love love love brownies. They are probably my favorite chocolaty dessert. I have tried countless brownie recipes and I never found one that was as good as the boxed brownies that I haven been eating for years. Good news… I’ve finally found a recipe that is BETTER than boxed brownies. That’s right, you read that correctly. Every recipe I previously tried was either too dry or too cake like. This recipe is perfect! They’re gooey, chocolaty, moist and they will keep you coming back for more. I can honestly say I will never make boxed brownies again. These were honestly the best brownies I have ever tasted.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbs. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with shortening; set aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter over low heat. Once butter is completely melted add in sugar and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour sugar mixture into a large bowl. Beat in cocoa, salt, baking powder, vanilla, eggs. Mix until combined. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until well combined. Spread brownie batter into prepared pan (batter will be very thick). Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
Cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!
