Chewy Chocolate Brownies

I haven't used this recipe in a long time and I pulled it out last night for a young woman activity. After they were done I remember that they are WONDERFULLY DELICIOUS!! If you like chocolaty, this is the brownie for you.


2/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
2 c. (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips over hot, not boiling, water. (I just put the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 2 minutes) Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat well. Slowly stir in melted chocolate. Blend together. Gradually add flour mixture to chocolate mixture stir until smooth. Stir in remaining chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Spread into a buttered 8 " square baking pan. I have used a 9x13 pan, just don't cook it as long.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Cool. You can dust with powdered sugar.
