Originally I was planning to make brownie brittle, which is what everyone's crazy about these days. So I did an experiment yesterday, but my batter was too thick and instead of becoming thin and crispy, they turned out to be chewy and crunchy at the sides. Surprisingly, they turned out really good! So good I had to share the recipe on my blog.
This recipe is good for two 9"x12" pans
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups powdered cocoa
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven at 375 F. You can either line your 9"x12" pans with parchment paper, or grease the pans with butter.
2. In a large bowl, combine butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Mix them until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla one at a time. And mix mix mix.
3. Now that all your liquid ingredients are in the bowl, it's time to add the dry ingredients. Gradually add the flour, baking soda, and salt into the mixing bowl, stirring just to combine.
4. Add the powdered cocoa and mix until batter is well blended. Then finally add the chocolate chips.
5. Pour the batter on two pans and spread them out with a spatula until it's about 1/4" thick. That's just the right thickness to makes your brownies chewy.
6. Bake them for about 15 minutes. Wait for it to cool completely before serving.
And so after reading threads and comments on the internet, I later learned that your batter is supposed to be runny when you're making brownie brittle. Maybe I'll do that next time. But for now, I'm happy that this recipe was success in a different way. My sister's favorite part was the burst of melted chocolate chip flavor in every bite. You can also add nuts and toffee for more texture and flavor. And then let me know how they turn out for you when you bake them!
