…sometimes you want to make brownies! I haven’t shared a recipe in a while, and so when a friend asked for a copy of this one, I realized that if I was typing it up, I may as well share it with you! This is one of those very low key recipes that is actually pretty handy for entertaining because they manage to look maybe a tiny bit more fun than a usual pan of brownies. My personal favoriteÂ is to make them in a foil-lined pan, fold the foil around them, and put them straight in the freezer. They slice super nicely when they are frozen too. Â Because the topping is outrageously rich, you only need a tiny square of brownie per serving. I can easily get 24 out of a 9×13 pan, and that is with my kids eating all the edges! So what I’m saying is try these!
Brownies: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and grease or foil line or both a 9×13″ pan. In a sauce pan over low heat melt 1/2 c. butter with a bag (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 c. sugar, 4 eggs, 1 1/3 c. flour, 1/2 t. baking powder, a shake of salt, and 1 t. vanilla. Â Stir in another cup of chocolate chips of any kind, and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes. When your brownies are cool, or frozen, cut into small squares that will fit into the bottom of cupcake liners. Â For topping, melt 1 stick of butter with another bag of chocolate chips (we like extra dark) until just smooth – do not overheat. Using a spoon, whollop a scoop onto each brownie, and swirl it around until it the outside edges cover the rough edges of the brownie. Top with some kind of accessory- really big colored sprinkles are my favorite, but do as the spirit leads you!Â p.s. these are especially great for big group/ open house type things – they always disappear quickly!
