These brownies are great! I'm usually a fan of box brownies because of their texture and taste, but this recipe surpasses the box mixes, hands down. This recipe makes seriously fudgy brownies with a nice crispy crust, crunchy corners and edges (the best part), and a chewy center.
As I said before, the ingredients are nothing out of the ordinary (except perhaps the fleur de sel I sprinkled on top of my batter).
The first step is melting the butter and the chocolate.
Once you get this "chocolate soup," let it cool for a few minutes.
Next, add the sugars to the chocolate.
Then add the eggs, one at a time, ensuring that the mixture is homogeneous after the addition of each egg. Then add the vanilla extract.
Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, and salt together. Cocoa powder can be lumpy, so the main objective is to break up the chocolatey clumps while mixing it with the flour.
Add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture, carefully folding everything together.
When the dry ingredients are just barely mixed with the chocolate, throw in the chocolate chips.
After the chips are mixed in, pour the batter into a 9x9 pan, lined with parchment paper. Then put it into the oven for about half an hour.
The result is a nice fudgy brownie.
Corner piece, you're mine!
I feel like vanilla ice cream goes well with a lot of things. Fudgy brownies are no exception!
