The Chocolatiest Brownies I’ve Ever Made

chocolate-brownies-025

What do you make for a chocolate lover upon his return from a 3.5-week- work trip to a country with very limited amounts of chocolate? Why, the chocolatiest brownies you could fathom, of course! Ordinarily I would contest the amount of chocolate my boyfriend would ideally like in his brownies but this time I knew I had to go all out. He was chocolate-deprived and who was I to deny him?

The recipe starts with margarine. Cube up two sticks and let it melt.

Now, add your chocolate. The original recipe called for 4 ounces.  I upgraded to 6 ounces of good quality chocolate.

Once that mixture of chocolate and margarine melt out, remove from the heat and add your sugar.

The amount of sugar does seem like a lot but what are brownies without sugar? Just do it.

Now it’s time for the eggs. One at a time, folks!

And last but not least, add that precious flour, the final ingredient that transforms this chocolate egg mixture to brownie batter. Yummmmy!

Wait! Did I say final ingredient? Scratch that. These  are supposed to be the chocolatiest brownies ever, which means lots of chocolate chunks (or chips) are very necessary. How could I forget?

Finally, scrape your batter into a 13×9-inch pan and top with more chocolate chunks! Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35+ minutes (depending on your oven, ours decided it didn’t like baking at normal speeds so it took longer).

And voila! Brownies! Do a little toothpick check and then do a little dance for the chocolatiest brownies ever. They’re sure to impress any chocolate lover, unless  you are my boyfriend.

D: “The brownies were good.”
Me: “Oh good! I’m glad you liked them. Were they chocolatey enough?”
D: “There is no such thing.”

    I don’t know if your site OR your recipes are any good: I can’t get past the floating squares which take up half my viewing area, want me to buy what I do not want, and have NO “close this” available. I know you want to make money with your blog, and you should, but pick less intrusive and annoying advertizementshy
