Better than the box!

May 31, 2007

We had no sweets in the house tonight so I decided I had to bake. Well my go to dessert is brownies. I admit, I have always been a boxed brownie kinda girl. That is, until I discovered this recipe. I will never go back to the box!

Chewy Cocoa Brownies
(recommended by nestie Soon2BMrsN)

1 2/3 c. sugar
3/4 c. melted butter or margarine
2 tbsp. water 
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour
3/4 c. baking cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. chopped nuts
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 13x9 pan.

Combine sugar, butter, and water in large bowl.Stir 
in eggs and vanilla.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in medium 
bowl. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture. Add nuts 
and chocolate chips. Spread into prepared pan.

Bake for 18 to 25 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted 
comes out slightly sticky.
Makes 12 servings.

*I prefer my brownies without nuts so I ommit those.
Also, I was out of chocolate chips so I didn't add those either. 
It's a great basic brownie recipe even without 
those two ingredients.
