Brownie Recipe (don't worry: it's not healthy!)

You know how some days you just need to throw "healthy" out the window and eat something chewy, fudgy, and chocolaty? Well, these brownies meet all of those needs!

This recipe is easy, cheap, quick, and only dirties one mixing bowl. If you line the baking dish with parchment paper, you don't even have to clean the baking dish! This recipe has never failed me, and it always gets rave reviews from friends.

They also freeze great! I make a batch and then wrap them individually in saran wrap to store in the freezer. When birthday parties come up for my daughter, we grab a brownie out of the freezer for her to have at the birthday party.


Ingredients:
4 ounces of unsweetened Baker's baking chocolate
1 1/2 stick of unsalted organic butter
2 cups white organic sugar
3 organic eggs
1 cup white wheat flour
(Optional: bag of chocolate chips)


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Microwave unsweetened chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl for 2 minutes or until butter is completely melted (stir frequently to make sure you don't accidentally burn the chocolate!)
  3. Stir in the sugar.
  4. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  5. Fold in the flour and, if using, the chocolate chips.
  6. Line a 2 quart glass baking pan with parchment paper. 
  7. Spread batter into pan
  8. Bake on the upper-middle rack of the oven for 20-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with fudgy crumbs. (NOTE: the shape of your baking dish will impact the length of cooking time so start checking the brownies around 15 minutes)
  9. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then cut immediately using a serrated knife.
