I love this brownie recipe. It is my reliable, tried and true, go to recipe. Who needs a boxed brownie when you can make them better?!
Heat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 8x8 square pan. Heat 1/4 c of butter and about 6 ounces of chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted. Once melted, remove the saucepan from the stove. Continue to add the following to the saucepan- 3/4 c of sugar, 2/3 c flour, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp baking powder and 2 eggs. Stir all these ingredients into the melted chocolate and butter with a wooden spoon until well combined. Once your batter is smooth, stir in another 1/2 c of chocolate chips. Spread the batter into your pan and bake for 30 minutes.
Once you make these from scratch you will never use boxed again!!
