This brownie recipe is so simple (ONE pot!) and so delicious, it is definitely classified as one of my ultimate go-to brownie recipes. I have made it dozens and dozens of times and it is unbeatable when topped with ice cream. I have many favorite brownie recipes (how can you choose just one?) but this is definitely in the top faves. Every brownie is different and every brownie lover has their ultimate brownie – these beauties are fudgey and moist. Since they are made with chocolate chips as the base, you can tailor the flavor to your liking – if you prefer dark chocolate, then by all means use dark chocolate or semi-sweet chips, but if you like a more mild chocolate flavor, pour in milk chocolate chips.
*7/09 – I have edited this recipe to include a bit of salt and vanilla. They were good before, but now they are GREAT!*
- 1 12-ounce bag chocolate chips (use the kind you prefer)
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 large eggs at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate chips. Stir constantly and remove from heat when chips are fully melted. In the same pot, blend in the sugar and vanilla. Then add eggs, blending fully one at a time. Add flour and salt and beat until air bubbles form in the batter.
- Pour into a greased 9 X 13-inch pan (this recipe works great doubled and poured into a large 11 X 17-inch rimmed baking sheet). Bake for 20 minutes. Turn heat down to 325 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes.
