The Ultimate Brownie Recipe

Chocolate Brownies



Need we say anymore?

For the last couple of summers 
we have been on the search for...

"The Ultimate Brownie"
and
I think we found it!


A crunchy top 
 

And a fudgy, moist, chewy center.


We didn't so much find it, 
but after trying
many, many, many
(did I say many?)
different recipes
Dakota came up with this one.

And it is good.
  And moist.
 And chocolate-y.
We started with this.

And added butter,
and sugar,
and vanilla,
and more things.
And came up with this...


  You could also drizzle it with fudge sauce.
and top it with chopped pecans.


Or fudge sauce, walnuts, 
and mini chocolate chips.





The Ultimate Brownie Recipe

1 stick butter
7- 1 oz. squares of semi sweet chocolate
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
3 eggs
1 & 3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup of flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt together the butter and chocolate squares.
You can do this on the stove
in a glass bowl that is 
resting on a pot of boiling water.
Stir until melted.
or
In the microwave at 2 minutes on high
stir and then 1 minute intervals
until melted.
Whisk in the cocoa powder.
Let this cool slightly.

Whisk the eggs until a golden yellow color.
Whisk in the sugar, vanilla, and salt.
Add the cooled chocolate mixture 
and whisk together.

Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon until combined.

Pour into a greased 9"x9" pan. 
We like to line our greased pan 
with parchment paper 
and spray the paper 
with cooking spray.
It makes it much easier to remove 
the brownies and cut them into squares.

Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes.
Let cool.
Then enjoy.


Now spotlight!!!
