Easy Moist Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Making homemade brownies from scratch is just as easy as if you made them from a box mix...plus they taste 100% better. This recipe uses only a handful of ingredients and takes only a few minutes to prepare.

Moist Chocolate Brownies Recipe

4 squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter (not margarine)
2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your 8 x 8" baking pan with nonstick vegetable spray. (just give it a light coating).

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the unsweetened chocolate with your 3/4 cup of butter. Heat on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes in your microwave until the chocolate and butter are melted. I like to use my Tupperware nonstick silicone spatula for stirring the melted chocolate and butter. Stir in the granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until all ingredients are combined. Stir in the all-purpose flour and mix well.

Spread the batter into your prepared baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until done. Be care to not over bake! I usually remove my pan from the oven at exactly 25 minutes as they will finish baking in the pan. Let them cool completely before slicing into squares. Store your squares in an airtight container. (I store mine in the Tupperware Prep Essentials Snack-store container).

Just when I'm heading for lunch. This sounds so much yummier than my chicken noodle soup.

I am not a very good cook but, I MIGHT be able to make these.
But, who would care if they turned out like soup? I mean Brad & Cait would still eat them as long as they tasted ok.
I just have to wait until it cools off here. I am still running the A/C during the day so, no oven yet.
