AKA: The Orgasmic Brownies
Truly, the best brownies I've ever made. This is my stand-by recipe for whenever asks for brownies, because, again - FABULOUS.
3/4 cup cocoa
½ tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted and divided
½ cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan
Stir together cocoa and baking soda in a large bowl; stir in 1/3 cup melted butter. Add boiling water; stir until mixture thickens. Stir in sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup butter; stir until smooth. Add flour, vanilla, and selt; blend completely. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes, or until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool completely in pan on wire racks. Frost if desired. Cut into squares.
