Fudgy Brownies

I'm pretty darn picky when it comes to brownies- I often prefer the boxed ones.  These were a cinch to make and tasted great! I think next time I'll mix in the nuts with the batter, though.

Fudgy Brownies

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I used dark, my favorite)

  • ½ cup flour

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8-inch square glass baking pan; set aside

  2. Measure out ¼ cup of the chocolate chips and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, and salt; set aside.

  4. Add the remaining chocolate chips to a medium bowl with the butter. Melt in microwave until the chocolate and the butter are melted. Add the vanilla to the bowl and stir to combine; set aside.

  5. Add the eggs and sugar into a clean, large bowl. Whisk until thick and pale yellow. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture.

  6. Add a spoonful of the flour mixture to the ¼ cup chocolate chips; toss and set aside.

  7. Fold in the flour mixture and remaining chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Evenly sprinkle nuts over the top, if using, and press gently into the batter.

  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the center is set. Let cool completely before cutting
