Aren’t we lucky that brownies exist? Then we are blessed with chocolate chip fudge brownies. Yay!
When I was a kid, I saw the movie Willy Wonka and was mesmerized by the idea and decadence of a candy factory where someone liked Willy Wonka lived. For some time after seeing the movie, I would have a recurring dream where I somehow got to visit the Wonka factory. I remember vividly jumping into a vat of chocolate sauce and drinking the chocolate, eating flowers that were really candy and meandering all over the candy factory in sheer delight. Of course, now I wouldn’t want to jump into a vat of chocolate sauce; how messy would that be?
The love of chocolate has stuck with me though and I love finding a good brownie recipe.
One thing I love about this particular brownie recipe is that there are chocolate chips spread throughout. I suppose it’s like brownies that have walnuts, except these have chocolate chips.
I baked these in a 9 x 11 pan and although you can see the chocolate chips in the photos, they are cooked all the way through. Some brownies are good when just a little underdone and a little gooey. I baked these so that they were chewier (but not underdone and a little gooey) if that makes sense. If you prefer more cake-like brownies, simply use a smaller pan, like an 8×8. So good either way!
I usually have a cup of tea in the mid-afternoon most weekdays and this will be the perfect accompaniment.

- 3/4 cup butter 1 1/2 sticks
- 4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. If using a glass plan, preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Prepare, grease and flour your baking pan.
In the microwave, place unsweetened chocolate and butter in a glass measuring cup or glass bowl and heat until almost melted. Stir to melt remainder. You could also melt in saucepan on stove over low heat.
Place eggs, sugar and vanilla in large bowl and using an electric mixer blend until light colored and combined. Stir in the chocolate/ butter mixture and blend. Next, add the flour and blend. Gently blend with a spoon or spatula. Do not overbeat.
