If you're like me and get those unexpected chocolate cravings then, this is the recipe for you! It's no fuss, all flavor and everything you need is in your cupboard. *Tip: I highly recommend using good quality baking chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder. I always stock up on Scharffenberger, Guittard and Ghirardelli chocolate whenever I go to my local market. This recipe is versatile and you could mix in nuts, chocolate chunks or candies.
Have a chocolate craving? Here's the recipe!
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Melt the butter over low heat in a medium-sized saucepan.
When it's melted, add the sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and pinch of salt, and then stir into the pan; when mixed remove from the heat.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the vanilla extract and then mix into the brownie mixture in the pan.
Stir in the chocolate chips and quickly pour and scrape into a foil-lined baking pan, spreading the mixture with a spatula, and cook in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a rack to cool a little before cutting.
