Thick, chewy and decadent–these brownies are good for any and every occasion.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (maybe a little more for sprinkling, if you like that sort of thing)
10 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 Tablespoons water
12 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Heat oven to 325. Line 9X9 baking dish with foil, making sure to leave overhang.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
In a saucepan, heat the butter, sugar and water.
As it starts to come to a boil, remove it from heat and add 6 ounces of chocolate chips and vanilla.
Stir until it comes together in a smooth mixture.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly.
Slowly fold in the flour mixture.
Add the remaining 6 ounces of chocolate chips.
Spread into the baking pan and bake for 40-50 minutes.
Towards the end of the baking time, check on the brownies. You want the center to be slightly underdone so that they keep their gooey consistency.
Cool completely and enjoy.
