Double Chocolate Brownies

It is pretty funny that if I ever made brownies, they were only from the box. Little did I know how easy they actually are to make from scratch. I love this recipe because it is super easy and double chocolate! What is great about them too is that they are not overly sweet and this recipe makes a great crumbly crust. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Enjoy!

Double Chocolate Brownies
Recipe from Family Circle
Makes 16 large brownies

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
4 ounces (4 squares) unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans (I left these out of the recipe)
1 bag (12 ounces) chocolate chips (2 cups)

Directions: Heat oven to 350°. Line 13x9 baking pan with nonstick foil, leaving overhang. In large glass bowl, heat butter and chocolate in microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes; stir until smooth. Let stand 5 minutes to cool slightly. Whisk in sugar, eggs, flour and vanilla. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes, until top is dry to the touch. Let cool completely in pan on wire rack. Lift brownie from pan with foil. Cut into squares and serve.
