Dark Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are a joy.  Dark, rich and gooey they are a delicious chocolatey treat.  Enjoy on it’s own or with a generous dollop of vanilla ice cream on top!

2 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
2 sticks unsalted butter
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoonful vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoonful baking soda
Pinch of salt

Heat oven to 350F

Grease a 13×9 pan.

Heat the butter and chocolate very gently in a pan over low heat until melted. 

Set aside to cool a little.

Whisk the eggs and sugar together for approx 3 minutes.

Add the vanilla extract to the chocolate mixture and combine.

Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and gently but thoroughly combine.

Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into the chocolate egg mixture and fold in gently.

Pour the mixture into the pan and place in the oven for approx 20 minutes.  The mixture should wiggle in the middle when you remove it from the oven.

Leave to cool thoroughly in the pan before cutting into squares.
