Basic Chocolate Brownies
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tspn vanilla
3 large eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips/chunks
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
Line an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Add the vanilla and sugar to the melted butter. Stir well.
Mix in the cocoa powder.
In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl and whisk in with the eggs until well combined. Stir in the flour and chocolate chunks, but do not over mix.
Pour batter into the previously prepared baking pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
Let the brownies cool for about 15-20 minutes. Remove parchment paper (with brownies) from the pan. Peel away the parchment paper and cut the brownies into serving size pieces and store in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days.
These were really scrumptious! After two or three days (when they start to dry up a little round the edges) we just crumbled them up into vanilla ice-cream...mmmhmmm...!!
