Chocolate Chip Brownies

Chocolate Chip Brownies

Chocolate chip brownies are one of life's great delights! 


If you agree with me, I've got another great brownie recipe for you to try. 


When it comes to brownies, there are all different types.  You've got crunchy, soft, fudgie, fluffy, iced, dense, with or without nuts, you name it.


I love them all!  :)


This weekend we had some friends come over to spend the day with us.  They know well my love of chocolate, and the delightful Emily (aged 16) made up a special batch of brownies to tempt me.

They were so, so good.  I'm embarrassed to admit that I ate three large brownies on Saturday.


I simply couldn't help myself! 


Emily got this chocolate chip brownie recipe from another teenage friend and then played around with it a bit to get it just the way she liked it. 


I asked Em to take a few photos and pass the recipe on to me so I could share it with YOU, and she agreed.  So, without further ado...

How To Make Chocolate Chip Brownies

Any time you get ready to make a recipe, it's always "best practice" to pull out all of your ingredients and tools needed to be sure you have everything on hand. 


This makes the process a lot easier and you can whip up a batch of brownies in just minutes (apart from the baking time, of course). 


Here's what you'll need to create Emily's brownies with chocolate chips:

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 cup of cocoa powder (sifted)
  • 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips, buttons, or melts (more or less as desired)


***Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).  You can adjust the temperature slightly up or down to get the level of crunch you prefer on the crust or to allow for an oven that runs hot, etc.

In a large bowl, add the ingredients one at a time, giving a good stir between each addition.


For best results, sift the cocoa powder into the bowl, but I have to admit that sometimes I just plop it in without sifting.

Once you've got a stiff mixture of the liquid and powder ingredients, it's time to stir in the chocolate chips.


You can add extra chocolate chips if you're like me and enjoy that extra dimension.  ;)

Line your brownie pan with baking paper (or lightly butter the pan if you prefer).


Drop your brownie mixture into the pan and press it down with your fingers to spread it evenly throughout.

Pop your baking tray into the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes until done.

You can poke a knife or skewer into the center of the brownies to see if they are done.  It should come out mostly clean.


Allow your brownies to cool, cut them into squares, and then watch them fly off the plate!

This brownie recipe results in a kind of fudge brownie.  It has little secret bits of chocolate chunks with a nice dense and moist consistency.  If that sounds like your kind of brownie, this is your kind of recipe. 


Give it a try and let me (and Emily) know what you think.  :)
