Double Chocolate Nut Brownies Recipe

I love chocolate brownies and bake brownies often for my family. To keep my brownie fetish interesting I like to use a wide variety of brownie recipes and this particular one is one of my favorites. It will make approximately 2 dozen brownies.

Double Chocolate Nut Brownies Recipe

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup peanuts, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is heating up grease a 13" by 9" brownie pan. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt 1 cup of the semi-sweet chocolate chips at 15 second intervals until melted, stirring in-between each interval. Remove from the microwave and pour the melted chocolate into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the large eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and baking soda until all ingredients are well combined. Fold in the chopped peanuts. Pour the brownie mixture into your prepared baking pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until done. Let the brownies cool and then cut into bars.
