These Dark Chocolate Brownies are one of my family's favorite.
The recipe makes an 8 x 8 pan, so it's perfect when you don't want a lot of dessert hanging around.
Using dark chocolate cocoa takes down the sweetness and makes for a delicious decadent treat.
You can just tell how moist these are. You can't see it because this is a center piece, but
these bake up with that perfect crust around the outside edges.
And then, add some vanilla bean ice cream to start melting down over it.....Oh My!
Dark Chocolate Brownies
1/2 cup of butter, melted
1 cup of sugar
2 lg eggs
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup Special Dark 100% cacao (I use Hersheys)
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Heat oven to 350*
Lightly spray an 8 x 8 baking dish and line with parchment paper.
Whisk together cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Melt butter in a medium size bowl. Stir in sugar along with eggs (I like to use a fork and break mine up/sightly beat in a small bowl) and vanilla.
Add flour mixture and stir until just combined. Don't over mix.
Bake for 20 - 22 minutes.
