Brownies. And that is All.

Hello Everyone!
I have emerged again from my hole called homework, and decided to post about this wonderful brownie recipe I made today.  I have always been boxed brownies biggest fan.  Even though I have friends who claim they will give me cancer, I do not cease to buy these delicious boxes of who-knows-what-is-in-them brownies.  However, sometimes I do not have brownies in a box, and still crave the gooey chocolate stuff we named brownies.  Thus, I reverted to looking up "Gooey Home Made Brownies" and found Karly's Blog.  She posted the recipe which I then proceeded to print and create.


Obviously since this was a wonderful recipe, I chose to share it with y'all.  So here you are-- a wonderful brownie recipe to add to your collection.  
**Side note, I used almost 1/2 cup less sugar than she called for... and they still tasted amazing.**



1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.
In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer
, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until well combined.
Spread into prepared pan (batter will be very thick and sticky) and bake for about 30 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.
