Dark chocolate brownies

I was never a fan of dark chocolate as a kid, but I am now!

Today, for the first time in a while, the treat request was for dark chocolate brownies, with chocolate chips baked in. My mom has been adding chips to brownies for a long time and theyare always a big hit. I never thought about adding chips. I always threw in pieces of candy or oreos. A while back. I baked brownies that contained a mini Oreo inside a chocolate chip cookie. It has been a while,since I have done that. I used dark chocolate chips for the brownies (although you could use semisweet). I opted for semisweet chipa for the mix-in (feel free to use another flavor or nuts or coconut)

What’s better than a brownie?

Remember to preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking (gives your oven time to cycle through to get to the right temp). Also, use a spoon to,scoop your flour into your measuring cup. And if you don’t have chocolate extract, use vanilla or another flavor (I have almond, mint, and cookies n cream in my collection)

  • Ingredients
  • 1 1/3 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1,tsp chocolate extract
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking pan with foil and spray with baking spray. In a microwave safe bowl, melt dark chips, sugar, water and butter in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Beat in eggs and extract. Mix in flour and salt. Fold in semisweet chips. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes (toothpick inserted in,center comes out with a few crumbs. Cool completely. Store in covered container. They should stay fresh 2 to 3 days.
