Death By Chocolate!

Posted by Annie on Jun 7, 2012 in Activity |

We’ve been experimenting in the kitchen for the past couple of weeks. I think I’ve been watching too much of the Food Network because yesterday I made carrots with cherries. It wasn’t bad but it was different. The guys gobbled it up.

Last night I made Chocolate Chip Brownies. They were so chewy and moist and deeply satisfying that  I just had to share.

Chocolate Chip Brownies

  • 5 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 1- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2/3 cup self-rising flour
  • 4 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional: Add 3/4 chopped walnuts or pecans

1. Preheat  oven to 350 degrees, lightly grease a round or square 8 inch pan. Melt the chocolate in a  heat-proof  bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.

2. Beat the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Stir in the melted chocolate, the beat well until evenly mixed and smooth.

3. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl,  fold in  throughly. Stir in the chopped nuts and chocolate chips,  pour into the prepared  pan and spread evenly to the edges.

4. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until top is firm and crusty. Do not over bake. Note: The toothpick test doesn’t work well because of the melted chocolate chips. Cool in pan before cutting into squares.

*High altitude adjustment: Bake at 325 degrees.

You have to really like chocolate. I’m going to try it without the cocoa next time and see if that doesn’t help, but the texture is the best I’ve ever had. If you love chocolate you’ll love these.
