Recipe type: Brownies
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks butter, unsalted
  • 1½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, I used dark chocolate
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees
  2. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper. I just let the parchment paper it hang over the edge. It makes for easy grabbing. Then lightly spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  3. In a large pot; over medium heat, add butter and melt. Once melted take off the stove.
  4. Add sugar to the pot of melted butter and stir until completely combined. Add vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Add each egg one at a time. Stir until each egg is incorporated. Add cocoa powder and stir until incorporated. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix until well combined.
  5. At this time you can add nut and or chocolate chips if desired.
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in oven for 20 - 30 minutes, until; center comes out semi clean. I like to under-bake my brownies a pinch. My oven cooks quick, so I cooked for 20 minutes.
  7. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting. You can cut into 24 squares or you can use a 1½" heart shape cookie cutter to cut out little heart shapes. I used the brownie scraps to have with ice cream or to munch on.
  8. To store, you can freeze the brownies or cover with aluminum foil for a couple of days. Warm the brownies in the microwave for a few seconds and serve with ice cream. Yum!
