1. They are really easy to make and they only have a few ingredients.
2. They are chewy, soft and amazing.
Into a parchment paper lined 9x9 baking dish... try to smooth it as much as you can. It's not easy because it's a super thick batter.
Basically, 20 minutes later and this is what comes out.
Wanna know a secret? This is how I test my brownies to see if they are done. Fork- into the set up batter.
When the prongs come out like this- completely clean, you know that it's good to go. Let them set up for a bit, then cut 'em up.
The Best Brownies
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whip butter, sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing well with each egg. Beat in flour and cocoa until well combined. Add in salt and baking soda with mixer as well. Stir in chocolate chunks. Pour batter into the lined baking dish and smooth until evenly spread. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until completely set and a tester fork comes out smooth. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
