Brownies Deluxe

Printable Recipe

I suppose no one can really have too many brownie recipes. This is the one that happens to be a family favorite at the moment. They are not too fudgey, and not too cakey, but right in between. They're just right! This recipe does get half of its chocolate flavor in the brownies themselves, from semi sweet chocolate chips. If you would prefer not to use the chocolate chips, double the amount of unsweetened chocolate.

2 (1-oz) squares unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1  1/3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2-3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Melt together the chocolate and shortening in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in the sugar. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. pour into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

Chocolate Frosting

2 tbsp butter
2 (1-oz) squares unsweetened chocolate
3 cups pwd sugar
5 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla

Melt the butter and chocolate together. Beat in the pwd sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Spread on brownies.
