Death by chocolate brownies!

It sure is fun to surprise your kids with a light dinner followed by a mouthwatering dessert. Cool off the heat with freshly baked brownies, a dollop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel syrup.

Brownies and ice cream volcano at Rainforest cafe... any one ever tried them? They are one of the finest brownies I have tasted ever! So, from them on, I was on a mission to bake them, and no compromise, I wanted them to have loads of chocolate, and they had to be chewy. 

Now when something is on mind, I cant get to sleep without trying them. Have you ever felt like waking up at 2 in the night, to make a batch of brownies that you have been dreaming about all week? Welcome to my world! So here they are, nothing but... brownies..just the way they are meant to be.. chewy and rich with real chocolate.

This was my third go, juggling combinations and getting this perfect. The first two times, they were cakey, so I improvised on a few things until this heavenly brownie came about.  I believe, we do not need any baking powder or baking soda at all. The eggs will do that little rise you need in the brownie.

What you need: Makes about 28-30 brownies
1 cup / 2 sticks butter, melted
2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 cup dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.

Combine the melted butter, sugar, and eggs in a large bowl. Beat them all together on low until thoroughly blended.

Gradually stir the flour into the mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish. This is a bit of a task, as the batter is pretty thick.

Bake in a preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out a little gooey, about 15-17  minutes. Under cooking them by a few minutes will give them a chewy gooey texture. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares and devour them warm. Enjoy!
