Recipe : YUMMY Brownies!
These brownies turned out sooo good..... fudgy and yummy and a crispy top... and guess what? I'm even going to share my recipe. :-) I used a 9x13 glass baking dish but you can make this in a 9x9 as well, and metal is fine. A note I came across - apparently brownies store best when wrapped individually and kept at room temperature.
3/4 cup butter or margarine
4 ounces (4 squares) semi-sweet chocolate
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups white flour
chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare a baking pan by lightly greasing the entire inside. Optional - sprinkle cocoa all over the inside of the pan after greasing.
In a small saucepan, melt melt chocolate and butter together over medium heat. Let cool slightly.
Mix eggs, vanilla and sugar with an electric mixer until well blended. Beat on high speed for about a minute, then beat in the chocolate/butter mixture. (This extra beating is what will give you the crispy meringue-like top on the brownies.)
Reduce the mixer speed to low and add in flour, mixing just until combined.
Pour into prepared baking dish. Optional - sprinkle the top with chocolate chips.
Bake until a knife or toothpick inserted near center comes out clean, between 20-45 minutes depending on your pan size and type.
Allow to cool completely then cut into bars.
