My brownie recipe is based on a recipe from my grandmother—what makes them so yummy is all the buttery goodness along with the surprise of miniature chocolate chips.


2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
1 stick butter (not margarine)
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
¾ C all-purpose flour
½ t baking powder
½ C chocolate chips (I prefer the miniature ones)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a saucepan, heat chocolate squares and butter over very low heat. Stir while melting and once melted, remove from heat.
  3. Mix in the sugar, then the eggs.
  4. Blend the flour and baking powder together and then add to the mixture in the saucepan.
  5. Add the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour into a greased baking pan, about 8x8x2 inches (I use a Pyrex glass pan).
  7. Bake for 25 minutes; test with a toothpick. The toothpick should come out clean while the brownies still look a bit moist. This is good.
  8. Let cool and then cut into 16 pieces.
Of course you can always eat more than one piece at a time.
