As chocolate fantasies go, these Double Chocolate Brownies are practically perfect: rich, moist, and incredibly delicious, yet amazingly easy to prepare! You can leave out the chocolate chips (but then they wouldn't be "double chocolate," would they?), or add chopped nuts, or top them with powdered sugar or your favorite chocolate frosting. This is a very adaptable recipe if you're feeling creative. Francine would love them!
3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips (your favorite: semisweet, milk chocolate, white chocolate or miniature)
Blend the melted butter, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the baking powder and salt. Add the flour and stir just until well-blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spread the batter in a greased 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350° F for 40 to 45 minutes or until the brownie is set in the center and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Do not overbake. Cool; cut into squares. Makes 16 2"x2" squares.
