These brownies are so easy to make and so easy to eat! I seriously can't stop making them (or eating them). They don't take a lot of time to make and there is nothing like a good dose of chocolate in the form of a brownie (especially after my little ones (growing and not so little anymore) are sleeping soundly in their beds).
Easy Homemade Brownies
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon table salt
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 350F degrees. Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment, extending it up two sides, or foil. Spray the parchment with a nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium heatproof bowl over gently simmering water, melt chocolate and butter together. Remove from heat when a few small pieces of chocolate remain and stir until chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Whisk in sugar and then eggs, one at a time. Next add the vanilla and salt. Stir in flour and scrape batter into prepared baking pan and spread until even. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool and cut into squares.
