The brownies you can't resist.

Ok I am officially caught up. Don't judge me.
I have set out on a mission to make things from scratch. Not because I am "Susie B Homemaker" but because I was tired of things not tasting delicious. I heard my Aunt Jane say once "That isn't even worth the calories I just ate." --So true, so true.
Adam and I both have a hard time eating out now or buying prepackaged foods because really they DONT taste the same. Honestly it doesn't take that much MORE time, just takes a little bit of planning. I thought I would share the BEST BROWNIES EVER. Don't believe me...try them.
I made these this morning...and doubled the batch. --Wait--Before you start making jokes about my pant size...Hear me out. My husband called me this morning and asked me to make some brownies for the bake sale at his work. Ladies!! If your husband is asking you to make something HE LOVES for a bake sale at HIS WORK, you KNOW he is proud. I did what any good wife would do...I made them. 
I have to admit I out did myself this time. Not going to lie. They were THE BOMB!
Here is what I did this time:
I double the batch.
 Turned the oven down 25 degrees and melted chocolate chips in with the butter and sugar. Here is the real recipe.
12 Tablespoons of REAL salted butter (don't cheat)
1 1/2 Cups sugar
2/3 Cup Cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs
1 Cup flour
**Here is the important part**
Brownies do not like to be played with. (that one is for you mom)
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease an 8x8 pan
Melt the butter and sugar in a sauce pan. Low heat don't burn it.
Beat your eggs in a separate bowl.
After sugar and butter are creamed together. Remove from heat and add Cocoa.
Add eggs.
Add vanilla
Fold in flour.
I love the way none of it really sticks together...its so cool to watch.
Make for about 30 minutes. (I say about because some of you don't like them soft. I DO!)
Enjoy. They are even better with a little bit of ice cream.
Let me know what you think when you try them.

    2. my last batch i cheated and made ghiradellis, but thats only because they were already in my cupboard. :) I'll try them this week! If i can duplicate your fabulous results, I will add these to my welcome gifts at the VCH! Right now I only do pumpkin bread, but these would be fun to give to the guests.

    3. I made them again yesterday...I highly recommend NOT using semisweet morsels. Use real chocolate. Just sayin.

  2. No choco chips but very delicious!!!!!
