Fudgie brownies studded with milk chocolate chips. These are dense, moist and just too good to only have one !
These are very easy to make and contain 4 hits of chocolate: unsweetened, dark, cocoa and milk chocolate chips! A quadruple whammy of goodness.
Not many pics today as I made these late last night and was too tired to snap as I went along.
WHAT YOU NEED
3/4 cup unsalted butter cut into chunks
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped
3 ounces dark chocolate chopped
1 tablespoon cocoa (Fry's works great)
1 1/2 cups fine white sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs at room temperature
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk chocolate chips
PREHEAT oven to 350F and grease an 8inch square baking pan
MELT butter, unsweetened and dark chocolate slowly in a double boiler until smooth
WHISK cocoa into melted butter/chocolate mixture and let cool 15 minutes
IN LARGE BOWL, combine sugar, vanilla and salt
ADD cooled chocolate mixture and stir until well blended
ADD one egg at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon or spatula after each egg addition
ADD flour, blending just until combined. I like folding it in with a spatula to reduce the possibility of overmixing
GENTLY fold in chocolate chips
POUR batter into prepared pan
BAKE for 35 minutes. Toothpick test in center should be almost clean
REMOVE from oven and allow to cool on rack completely
CUT into squares and ENJOY !
TIP: dip knife into hot water to ensure a clean cut. Wipe off knife of all brownie residue after each cut, dip in hot water and cut again !
These little brownies would also be delicious with a simple buttercream icing and topped with sprinkles or a candy heart to liven things up a bit :)
