Fudgy, Homemade Brownies from Scratch

My dear Miss Mabel continues to bake and cook up a storm in the kitchen this summer.  Recently, she made this delicious recipe of fudgy, homemade brownies after her daddy requested some homemade, chocolatey goodness ;)


3/4 cup dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted & divided (1/3 cup + 1/3 cup)
1/2 cup boxing water
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup flour
2 cups chocolate chips


1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9 x 13" baking dish and set aside.

2.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cocoa and baking soda.  Stir in 1/3 cup of the melted butter until smooth.  Stir in the boiling water until the mixture is smoothened thick.

3.  Stir in the sugar and eggs with the remaining 1/3 cup melted butter.  Stir in the vanilla and salt until just smooth.

4.  Dump in the flour and chocolate chips at the same time and stir until just combined.

5.  Spread the batter into your prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges start to pull away from the pan.  (Always better to under-bake than to over-bake brownies!)

6.  Cool completely in the pan.  (Brownies freeze great for later if there are leftovers!)

We never have leftover brownies in our house!  ha ha!
