We tried these brownies last night for F.H.E. I found the recipe on The Sisters' Cafe. I thought they were ok warm, but not great. Then I tried them this morning. WOW. They were so. much. better!! The flavor and consistency settled together and they were dense and chocolately and yummy! Best of all, they really were super easy. So when you make them, let them cool and settle before serving.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips (however much you want- just sprinkle them on top)
Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl melt butter in microwave, then stir in oil, sugar and cocoa. With a wooden spoon stir in the remainder of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Spread into a 9x13 pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. If your toothpick comes out clean you have cooked them too long! DO NOT OVERCOOK!
*note: I halved this recipe and made it in a square 8x8 pan. They turned out great.
