Wednesday's Wonderings

Everyone needs brownies sometimes! 

At those critical moments in life that call for a warm gooey pan of brownies, you hope you have a mix in the cabinet.  On those horrific occasions when you find you are out of brownie mix and just NEED that fix you might begin to wonder if you could possibly make some from scratch that taste as good.  I finally found this recipe and it's the closest thing to chewy brownie deliciousness from a box that I have ever made!  Now I NEVER buy the box mix.  I always have the ingredients in the house for those "chocolate fix" kinds of moments.  

·         3/4 cup white sugar
·         3 tablespoons butter
·         3 tablespoons water
·         2 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
·         3 eggs
·         3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
·         1 cup all-purpose flour
·         1/4 teaspoon baking soda
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
1.     Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease an 9x13 inch pan.
2.     In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the chocolate mixture. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. It's hard to stir and will be lumpy but they come out great!
3.     Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies set up. Test with toothpick for done-ness, a couple of inched from the edge, but not in the center. Do not overbake! Cool in pan and cut into squares.

Now, go make some deliciousness in a pan!
