Scrumptious Brownies!

I made these brownies tonight. I’ve made them before, but I think they were even better tonight – maybe just because I haven’t had freshly cooked brownies in a while. Regardless, these are absolutely delicious and easy to make! I have tried several homemade brownie recipes, and this is truly one of the best. Each time I have made these brownies I have added chocolate chips, but I would like to try other additions as well. If you have a chocolate craving moment, try this recipe. Be careful… our household of six can nearly demolish the entire pan in one sitting!
35 min | 10 min prep
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease an 8 inch square pan or line with foil.
  3. In a medium bowl combine melted butter and cocoa and stir until cocoa is dissolved.
  4. Add sugar and mix well.
  5. Add eggs one at a time and stir until well combined.
  6. Stir in vanilla, flour and salt until you no longer see any flour (do not overmix).
  8. Spread in pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
  9. DO NOT OVER-BAKE -- your brownies will come out dry. Adjust time/temp accordingly for your oven. If you do the knife/toothpick test, it should come out with moist crumbs, not clean.
  10. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
  11. For vegetarian omit the marshmallows.
  12. For double recipe, bake in 9x12 pan and add 5 minutes to baking time.

  1. I've been making these for a while now and they are some of our favorites! I like that I normally have all the ingredients on hand.
