People love my brownies! They are all my father-in-law wants for Hanukkah and his birthday, and I give them freely as Christmas gifts. I give full credit to the recipe, which my husband cut out of a magazine for me many years ago. They are very rich and dense and chocolaty. Plan on cutting them into pretty small pieces because a little goes a long way. They are also really good with vanilla ice cream. Oh man, I’m making myself hungry! Here, exclusively for my readers, is my “secret” recipe.
Deep Dish Brownies
- 3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease square pan. Mix melted butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; beat with spoon. In separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; mix with wire whisk. Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture; mix with spoon just until blended. Add chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 40-45 minutes.
**Do not over-mix. Do all mixing by hand.
**Do not over cook. Cook until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
