Crackly Fudge Brownies

Crackly Fudge Brownies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350.  Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with a sheet of parchment paper.

In a saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter.  Add the sugars and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shiny and the butter no longer separates from the sugar.  Remove from the heat.

In a bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs for 1 minute.  Add the cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and vanilla and beat until smooth (it will be very thick).  Add the butter/sugar mixture and beat until smooth, scraping the bowl down to incorporate all the ingredients.  Add the chocolate chips, and beat until melted and smooth.  Fold in the flour.

Spread into the pan, and bake for about 25-30 minutes, just until set.  Cool completely, then lift the brownies out by the paper and cut into squares.
