So today was National Chocolate Day (can you hear angels singing? ) and I have decided that it is my favorite holiday. Other than Christmas and National Coffee Day. Ha Ha!! I decided that such an important day had to be commemorated and celebrated appropriately. What better way to celebrate a day all about chocolate than to make a batch of homemade brownies. Now not just any ole brownies, no sir. Hulk brownies. I do not know where that name came from, I only know that when I saw these on pinterest, it was love at first sight. I pinned them from a blog called Buns In My Oven. I don’t know but I like her style and she was dead on about these fantastic brownies. I strongly suggest you whip up a batch ASAP. You will not be disappointed. You don’t have to wait for National Chocolate Day to roll around again, there is something to celebrate in every day. And what better way to celebrate than with brownies?
1 cup or 2 sticks of butter
2 1/4 cup of sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 T. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a small saucepan, melt your butter completely and then add the sugar and continue cooking, never letting the mixture come to a boil. About 2 minutes on medium heat should do it.
Pour the butter/sugar mixture into a large bowl or bowl of your standing mixer. Beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips.
Spread this deliciousness into your prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out fairly clean cool and then cut into squares. shake some powdered sugar onto those babies if you so desire. And then pour a glass of milk and enjoy!!!! I bet you will see why this is my favorite brownie recipe…I bet it becomes a hit in your household too.
