perfect & simple brownies

these are so, so easy and foolproof, but i couldn't not share them. this was my first time using this recipe and i'm not sure why it took me so long! i found it via pinterest.

if you like fudgey brownies with just the right layer of crisp, you will never need another recipe in your entire life. yes, i mean that. i italicized it, after all (salinger & i would get along).

you will need...
  • 1 + 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4cup flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip 

in the original recipe, the quality of the chocolate is stressed, and this is so important! because the recipe is so simple, the chocolate itself really shines through. i used ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder and ghirardelli chocolate chips -- so be sure to splurge for some nice chocolate, no hershey's!

preheat your oven to 325 degrees. no need for a mixer -- toss everything into a bowl and stir until just combined. be sure not to mix it too much. add in your chocolate chips, grease your pan 8x12 pan and voila! i baked mine for exactly 30 minutes and then let them cool.

i'm never making brownies from a box again. these literally come together in minutes and are absolutely the best i've ever had! enjoy!

recipe via cook like your grandmother.
