Just in time for valentine's day, I give you these delicious chocolate brownies. Everyone prefers their brownies a little bit differently- some like them chewy and fudgy, others crumbly and cakey. With this recipe I tried to find a middle ground between these two extremes, and I am pretty sure I succeeded.
These little squares aren't so fudgy that they make your teeth hurt, but they are most definitely brownies and not cake. And my personal preference is for chocolate chunks in brownies- I just love getting little bits of pure chocolate in every bite. So make these for your friends, fam, or your significant other, and I promise that every kind of brownie lover will be happy.
Chocolate Chunk Brownies
Makes 9 large brownies
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 ounces chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine butter and unsweetened chocolate. Melt on high in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds to ensure the chocolate does not burn. Once melted, stir in sugar and set aside to cool slightly.
Beat eggs into chocolate mixture with a whisk until well combined. Stir in flour, vanilla, and salt until just combined. Stir in about half of your chocolate chunks. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chunks.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and brownies have puffed up slightly. Let brownies cool in the pan for about an hour before slicing and serving!
