The Best Brownies Ever - The Leftovers Club

Hello!  How is everyone?  Enjoying the spring?  We are, Milton is so glad that we can go for walks again, I think he missed the geese.  And I missed the sunshine and not wearing eleventy billion layers every time I walked out the door.  Spring is magical.

You know what else is magical?  Getting random treats in the mail from your brand new interwebs friends!  The Leftovers Club allows you to do that; you get paired up with another blogger and then you exchange treats.  Total win for everyone.  And this month, I was paired with Noha from Sugar and Garlic.  Definitely check out her blog - everything looks amazing!  I can't wait to see what she has in store for me.

I asked her what she might like and she said she was good with anything chocolatey, so I thought I'd keep it simple and make brownies.  I don't think I've ever made brownies from a recipe other than my grandmothers, so that's what I went with.  They really are the best, so why mess with perfection. Except I did; I've always been "strong-willed" (that's the PC term for does whatever the F she wants...), so no one is surprised.  But this time there was a good reason - I didn't have quite enough unsweetened chocolate, so I added some extra chocolate chips.  Definitely didn't want to risk them not being chocolaty enough.  No worries, Noha, that's not a problem!

The Best Brownies: 

2 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate
2 Sticks Butter
2 Tablespoons Cream
3 Eggs
2 1/2 Cups Sugar 
1 1/2 Cups Flour 
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Cup Chocolate Chips 

Pre-heat the oven to 350 and grease a pan super, duper well.  

Melt the bittersweet chocolate and the butter.  While that's melting, mix together the cream, eggs, and sugar.  When the chocolate and butter have melted, add that to the sugar, cream, and eggs mixture.  I have never waited for it to cool or tempered it in anyway and these have always turned out fine, so don't worry!! 

Then, add the flour, vanilla, and chocolate chips.  You can also add nuts if you're into that, but I'm going to take a few of these to a birthday party of a nut allergic person.  Seems rude to try and kill him at his own party?  

Bake at 350 for 30-45 min, until a fork comes out clean.  It's pretty easy to overcook them, so I try to check frequently.  

There are, as usual, amazing.  Usually, there are no chocolate chips and instead another ounce of bittersweet chocolate, but I think these turned out just fine.  Make sure you have a big glass of milk or a large bowl of ice cream to go with! 

Check out what my friends made :)
