I have to share this recipe with you! It’s too good to keep to myself. If you like chocolate, especially dark chocolate you’ll thank me later.
Years and years ago, the Mr and I wrote a brownie recipe. Then a few years later, I rewrote the recipe, making a few improvements. This week, I rewrote the recipe again and it’s deep dark chocolate brownie perfection!
My favorite ingredient in this recipe is what gives it the dark chocolate perfection. If you haven’t tried Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, pick some up next time you’re in the store. I first tried it last summer when the Mr requested a dark chocolate cake for his birthday. It was such a great cake I knew I had to attempt my brownie recipe with it…this week I finally did! And with Valentine’s Day coming up, what better time to try it!
Deep Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies
1/2 cup softened butter
1 c sugar
1tsp baking powder
1/2 c social dark cocoa powder
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/2 c flour
1/2 c chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter or spray an 8-inch square pan.
Cream the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.
Pour the batter into a greased pan and spread with a spatula, bake for 20-25 minutes. To check for doneness, batter should be pulling away from the side of the pan. The top should bounce back slightly and leave a finger print when you touch it. If you wiggle the pan, it will look loose like it isn’t set in the center. These are fudge brownies, you want them gooey. Set aside on a cooling rack until cool…Resist cutting until they are cool.
