This Recipe is UBER delicious, especially if you like brownies that are more on the cake side then the fudge side (which I do). I also like nuts and frosting on my brownies (don’t look at me like that, I’m a cake decorator!) So definitely try these out and let me know how yours turn out! Post pictures, comments, I wanna hear what you think!
Happy Brownie Eating!

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes
1.5 cups Ghiradelli 60% cacao chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla (real vanilla)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Spray 9×13 aluminum pan with pam
Melt butter and chocolate in microwave by heating in increments of 15 seconds. Stir in between heatings until completely melted. Do not overheat or chocolate will burn. Once melted, stir mixture until smooth then set aside.
In a large bowl (or kitchenaid mixer bowl) beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla on high for 8-10 minutes. Ingredients will be light and foamy. This is what makes the brownies so delish!
Fold in chocolate mixture, flour, salt and baking powder until mixed (do not over mix)
Pour batter into prepared pan. I sprinkle the chocolate chips and walnuts on top but you can mix them gently into the batter as well.
Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. DO NOT OVERBAKE! Its easy to do with brownies so if you have to put the brownies back in the oven, do at 3 minute intervals. They cook faster than you think!
When finished, place on cooling rack for 30 minutes to let chocolate set. They will still be warm but you can now enjoy your brownies or add some chocolate frosting on top like I did!
This is what I really thought of this recipe
