Today I’m sharing a recipe for brownies because lets face it, Valentine’s Day deserves some chocolate even if you hate it…there’s no arguing with me on this because we all know it’s true. My plans for today include working a 9 hour shift and then watching a scary movie at 10pm with some friends so I’m optimistic about it.
Anyway, I figured I would bake something for all of my lovely ladies at work today and brownies just seemed like the perfect thing, so here’s the recipe –
For this recipe you’ll need:
- 1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened chocolate
- 2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chip
In a small heavy saucepan or microwave-safe dish, melt unsweetened chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. In a small mixing bowl, combine egg and sugar. Stir in the chocolate mixture and mix well. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder; stir into the batter until just blended
From there you’ll just spread your batter into a greased pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let them settle for a few minutes and then take them out to cool on a wire rack.
That’s pretty much it. It’s super easy so even those of you who are not fabulous bakers can definitely pull this off.
I hope your valentines day is full of fun moments.
