We had a great day hanging out at the house for my man, the homebody. He asked me, "What would you do if it was Mother's Day?" and of course I say, "Hike down to Haputo Beach". With Chris, that's not gonna happen! He preferred to relax at home, take a nap, clean the van with his new shop-vac (his daddy day gift) and eat the yummy homemade brownies that I made for him.It was a great day!
Here's the recipe to the best brownies you will ever eat!! I've always made them from a box and decided to make them homemade today. Boy I'm glad I did but my waistline isn't!
Yummiest Brownies EVER!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, baking powder, and chocolate chips. (Note: if you toss your chips with a teaspoon of flour they won't stick to the bottom of the pan.) Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.
