Brownies, as They Should Be

Added by rainydaygal on May 28, 2010 in Brownies and Bars, Desserts


  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • 1-½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Water
  • 2 packages Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (12 Ounce Packages)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 325F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and mix to combine. In a large saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and water. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in one package of the chocolate chips and the vanilla extract. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Slowly blend in the flour mixture, and then add the remaining package of chocolate chips and the chopped nuts.

Pour into a greased 9×13″ pan* and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to over-bake, and make sure that your toothpick is coated with uncooked batter and not melted chocolate chips if you’re going to continue baking longer. Let cool at least 2 hours before serving.

Note: To make a half-batch, use a greased 9×9″ square pan and bake for 25-35 minutes.
