I went to watch the NY Giants season opener Sunday. And that means — Tailgating! I was asked to make something sweet, and there is no bigger crowd pleaser than brownies. Check out these delicious brownies – made from scratch. Try it just once, and you will be amazed at how much more yummy they are then the boxed variety.
1 cup of butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (like Hersheys)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 generous handful of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Add sugar, vanilla and eggs. Whisk until blended well. Sugar should melt / dissolve mostly. Do not let it boil – you will get scrambled eggs – (simmering is okay).
Measure out flour, cocoa and salt in a large bowl. Mix to combine. Stir in butter and sugar mixture to combine. Fold in mini chocolate chips.
Pour into a 13 by 9-inch pan sprayed with PAM. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool. Cut into triangles. Enjoy!
