Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate brownies are a weakness.
I collect recipes for them like some people collect souvenirs.

This one is handwritten by someone, in my large, random, recipe pile. I gathered this along the way somehow, but neglected to note from who or if I liked them!

Note: After making this batch, it is confirmed, they are yummy!

1 Cup butter
3 ½ oz unsweetened chocolate
4 Eggs
1 Cup sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
1 ½ Cup flour
½ Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp salt
1 Cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate. Cool.
3. Beat 4 eggs until creamy
4. Add sugar, beating constantly
5. Add vanilla and cooled chocolate
6. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
7. Add chocolate mixture to flour mixture
8. Spread in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan

  1. These look awesome and simple to make. I am on a diet, so they look even better! Thanks for linking to What'd You Do This Weekend.


  2. Jay, this really does look like the perfect brownie recipe, and I'm glad it makes a 9X13 pan. When I make brownies, I'm going to need more than a dinky 8X8 pan! :) The chocolate chips sprinkled on top are the perfect finishing touch. Thank you so much for sharing these at Treasure Box Tuesday! ♥

  3. Looks yummy! I recently posted a brownie recipe myself! The chocolate chips definitely give them the extra pop.

    Thanks for linking up at Gingham & Roses!
    Hope to see you back next week!
