Ditch the box brownie mix and give your family a treat with these decadent brownies! Made in our 9 x 13" USA Pan cake pan and topped with a dusting of powdered sugar. Or, serve warm with ice cream for a special treat!
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Serving Size: 24 brownies
Ingredients2 sticks unsalted butter
8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon expresso powder (optional)
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Melt butter and 8 ounces of chocolate over double boiler or in microwave. Careful not to burn!! Whisk eggs together in separate bowl. Add in sugars, salt, vanilla and mix well. Add chocolate/butter mixture and stir. Stir in expresso powder and flour. Stir in chocolate chips. I like to make a parchment "sling" in our USA Pan 13 x 9 pan. Just line with parchment and let ends hang over. This way, once brownies are cool, you can lift entire batch out and cut easily. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Once cooled, remove brownies and cut.
