  • 1 1/2 cups butter softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cream together the softened butter and sugar for a full 5 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla into the mixture, and beat for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the cocoa, salt and flour, this time mixing until just combined. Do not over mix at this point.
  • Fold in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips.
  • Spread the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan.
  • Bake at a 350° for 30-35 minutes. They are cooked through when a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs attached to it. If it comes out completely clean the brownies have been over baked.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan.
  • Store at room temperature in an air tight container for up to 4 days.


You can double the recipe and bake in a cookie sheet or half the recipe and bake in a square 8x8 pan.
