Best Brownie Recipe- EVER! :)

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Hi! Happy Tuesday!! you love brownies?? If you do- then keep reading, because I am going to share what I consider to be the BEST brownie recipe!!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 X 11 pan (I use a Pyrex baking dish) with cooking spray.

This is where it gets fun- because this recipe is totally one where you can dump all the ingredients in at once.  You don't need a mixer to make these brownies!!

In a mixing bowl, dump the following ingredients-
1 cup flour
2 cups white, granulated sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips (and an additional 1 - 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips)

Mix well together and pour brownie batter into your 9 X 11 pan.
The batter will be THICK!
Bake your brownies for approximately 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  You do NOT want to over bake them!! Over baking can take any dessert from super delicious to hockey puck status in just a few extra minutes too long in the oven!! :)
At the 30 minute mark, put a knife in the middle of the brownies- if it comes out clean- they're done! If not- let them bake for a couple minutes longer and check again.  
Once you have taken the brownies out of the oven, sprinkle your remaining chocolate chips (I like to use a mix of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips) all over the hot brownies.  Let the chocolate chips sit on top for about 5 minutes- then they will be melted enough that they can be spread into an "icing!"  Once you have your chocolate chips all spread out- you can add some fun sprinkles (my family LOVES sprinkles- including my husband!:) Or you can just leave them plain.  Either way- the brownies will be delicious.
In my opinion, since these brownies are so fudgy and dense, I recommend letting these fully cool and set up for at least 3 hours.  When I make these to bring to a party or cookout- I make them a day ahead.  These also freeze beautifully!! When I make them for my family, I always freeze half of the brownies.  It is so easy to take just a couple out of the freezer before dinner, and then they are thawed and super yummy by the time everyone is ready for dessert!

Are you a "brownie" person?? I hope you enjoy this recipe if you make them!! 
Also- if you have a favorite brownie recipe- share it with me!! You can never have too many brownie recipes in my opinion!! :)

Hope you have the best day!! It is SUPER hot here today- our goal is to keep from melting! HA!
