fudgy dark chocolate brownies

I do not love chocolate.  But I do love brownies!

Fudgy, chewy, preferably warm-out-of-the-oven brownies.

Weird?  Yes.  But I’m OK with that.

These brownies are especially good, almost as easy as a boxed brownie mix, and so much tastier!

Try them… you’ll never want go back to the boxed kind!

I like to make these peppermint-y, because that’s what I like.  You can do that too, by substituting the vanilla extract for peppermint, or whatever flavor you’d like!

Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies Recipe

3/4 cup dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted & divided (1/3 cup + 1/3 cup)
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350degrees F, and butter a 9×13″ glass baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cocoa and baking soda.  Stir in 1/3 cup of the melted butter until smooth.  Stir in the boiling water until the mixture is smooth and thick.  Stir in the sugar and eggs with the remaining 1/3 cup melted butter.

Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the flour, tossing to coat.

Into the chocolate mixture, stir in the remaining flour, extract and salt until just smooth.  Stir in the flour-coated chocolate chips and spread the mixture into your prepared baking dish.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges start to pull away from the pan.  (Better to under-bake than to over-bake these!!)  Cool completely in the pan.  Enjoy with a big hot cup of coffee, or a cold glass of milk!
