I love brownies. I think they are my husband's favorite chocolate dessert, especially if I add chocolate chips into them. I have a great brownie recipe I use all the time. However, watching Dessert First with Anne Thornton recently she shared her brownie recipe and I have to tell you, WOW! These are the most fudgy decadent brownies I've ever had. It is almost like eating fudge but in a brownie. They are so rich that I honestly only could eat one, and usually I never stop at just one brownie. I really really enjoyed these and definitely will be making this again and again. I think they may have been a tad too rich for my husband but I personally think the richer the better. Warm from the oven they reminded me of a warm gooey molten lava cake but a bit thicker. Definitely worth trying!
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, plus more, softened, for pan
1 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs, at room temperature
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Once melted add in the cocoa, sugar and salt and stir until the sugar has dissolved completely. It should start to look a bit like the start of fudge. Turn off heat and allow to cool a bit. Add in vanilla and eggs and whisk until combined. Pour flour into the chocolate mixture and whisk until just combined. Add in the chocolate chips. Grease a pan, roughly 5x5ish or to make it easier to get the brownies out line with parchment paper or aluminum foil and then grease that. Bake 20-25 minutes or until edges are done, the center will still look a bit underdone. If you want to cook it more that is fine, I like mine still a bit gooey. Then cool completely. I prefer to refrigerate mine until completely set. Slice and serve. YUM!
