Brownies. Enough said.
Actually! I believe brownies are seriously one of the most versatile desserts out there. There are countless ways of making them and the extra goodness you can add to them such as nuts and marshmallows. My personal favorite are chewy brownies with walnuts, it’s hard to pass those up. Another favorite are the brownie and cheesecake combo, two of my favorites in one…yay! This particular brownie is wonderful too especially if you are looking for a basic cocoa brownie recipe, from here you can add what you heart desires. Of course my kids devoured them…so it’s safe to say it was a hit.
Yields: 9-12 servings Prep Time: 7 minutes Cook Time: 22 minutes
- 1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (melted)
- 1 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
- 1 1/8 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift flour and cocoa powder in a large bowl.
Combine the rest of the dry ingredients, salt and sugar.
Next, stir in eggs, melted butter, oil and vanilla extract.
Fold in chocolate chips.
*I used semi-sweet chocolate chips but any chips will work.
Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and lightly grease. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
When done, pull out the parchment and cut into squares.
*I cut the brownie into 3×3 and got 9 pieces, you can always make them smaller!
As you can see they are somewhat thin, if you prefer thicker brownies just double the recipe and bake them in the same 8×8 baking dish.
Enjoy them with a cold glass of milk!
