Double Chocolate Brownies

This  brownie recipe, designed for the smaller household, are incredible.  This recipe is a keeper.  Adapted from Taste of Home’s Cooking for One or Two

Double Chocolate Brownies

  • 1 square or 1 ounce packet of unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 TB butter (do not substitute)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup AP flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a loaf pan (8″x4″).

Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate in small saucepan or in the microwave. Stir until smooth (don’t overcook!).  In a mixing bowl, combine the egg and sugar, stir in the chocolate mixture and the vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) and gradually add to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the nuts once the mixture is fully combined.  Spread in a loaf pan and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. . Bake for 350º F for about 17 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Cool. Makes about 8 wonderful brownies.

Note: As I think about it, you could also bake these in a mini muffin tin but it won’t take nearly as long to bake! I might try that soon.  I am ready to make another batch! ☺
