Easy Chocolate Brownies Recipe

If you are looking for an easy homemade brownie recipe, then I suggest you give this one a try! This particular recipe is a big seller at my daughter's school bake sales every time I make them because they are super chewy and moist!

Easy Chocolate Brownies Recipe

12 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
2/3 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups granulated sugar
4 medium eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix chocolate, vegetable shortening, medium eggs, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add in the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk chocolate chips and mix until well blended. Grease a 9 x 13" baking dish. Pour brownie batter into baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Do NOT over bake! You want them to be moist and chewy.
