Oh. My. God.

CORRECTION: I now make this with 2/3 cup less sugar because I found the original amount to be too sweet.  Don't cut down on the butter; you will lose the richness this recipe is great for.

  • 1 cup butter, melted

  • 3 cups white sugar (I will reduce this by at least 1/2 c the next time I make these)

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Combine the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into the egg mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate morsels. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove, and cool pan on wire rack before cutting. *** My toothpick did not come out clean...I think it was because of the chocolate chips (obviously they will be melted).  I considered it done when the edges were firm.  The center remained very moist and incredibly chocolaty, but this is why everyone loved it.
