Enormous Delicious Fudge Brownies

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you know that 1) I love to bake and 2) I tend to stick with pre-packaged cake or brownie mixes. For the longest time I've been telling myself that it's just easier that way. Until today, that is.

I love food. I love desserts more. I really want to work at a bakery or restaurant. But what kind of place would want me, a woman, who uses pre-packaged mixes? So I decided to ditch the mix and make a pan of delicious brownies from scratch.

I am so glad I did. They took the same amount of time that a packaged mix would, but taste infinitely more delicious. I used the Wuolett Enormous Brownies recipe from their website. Here it is:

In a glass mixing bowl, combine:

• 3/4 - cups melted Butter
• 4 - squares un-sweetened baking Chocolate
Microwave Butter and Chocolate until melted (on high about 2 minutes)

Add:

• 2 - cups Sugar, then mix
• 3 - large Eggs, then mix
• 1 - tsp. Vanilla
• 1 - cup Flour, then mix
• 1 - cup large Walnut pieces and chunks of premium-grade Bar Chocolate (Gently fold in – don't over-mix)

Stir Sugar into Chocolate until well blended - stir in Eggs and Vanilla, mix in Flour, stir in Nuts and Bar Chocolate. Pour into a 9x13 buttered baking dish and bake 30-35 minutes and 350° (325° in glass pan), until toothpick in center comes out with fudgy crumbs (do not over-bake).

I had to bake them about 45 minutes, but that's because my oven stinks. I let them cool for about 20 minutes and then I dug in. OMG these are the most delicious brownies I've ever tasted. They are not too sweet but totally soft and chewy.

And to think I made them with my own two hands! And the best part is that they probably cost less per pan than the pre-packaged-nuts-included kind you can get at the grocery store.




I'm never making packaged brownies again. Now I have to cut them up into squares and freeze half of them. If I don't, my husband will eat them all in one sitting and all my work will be gone in a flash.
