and as a woman that needs chocolate, it's handy to have options.
i think we've all eaten chocolate chips straight from the bag out of pure desperation, right?
just say yes.
well, tonight was no exception.
i just needed these brownies.
and after you make them, you'll need them, too.
without further ado, i give y'all my go to homemade brownies ...
what y'all will need:
1 3/4 cups nestle chocolate chunks, divided
1/2 stick of butter
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
caramel ice cream topping (optional)
the making part:
preheat oven to 350'
grease and sugar 8 x 11 baking dish (9 x 13 will work as well)
melt 1 cup of chocolate chunks and butter in saucepan over low heat until smooth.
remove from heat.
in mixing bowl, combine eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla and baking soda.
add melted chocolate.
pour batter into prepared pan.
sprinkle with remaining chocolate chunks.
note: you could also sprinkle 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, if you wanted, but these are perfect without the nuts.
cross my heart.
bake 25-35 minutes or until middle of brownies are set.
cool almost completely.
warm brownies are perfection.
eat two of them.
call me in the morning.
