This is the recipe I use when I want to make a small batch of brownies to satisfy a chocolate craving and don’t want to spend time melting chocolate, waiting for it to cool etc. My favorite recipe calls for a pound of butter and a pound of bittersweet chocolate and makes a large batch, but sometimes I want a quick brownie and this is the one I turn to. I use a plastic mixing bowl for easier clean up so I can melt the butter in the microwave and use one bowl to mix everything in (hate washing dishes!). The recipe uses coco powder (I like to use Valrhona coco powder) and melted butter which makes them very soft and chewy. You add sugar and eggs to the mixture and whisk it and then add flour and mix it. You can make it all in one bowl and use a whisk so you don’t need an electric mixer which also makes it quick. The tip is to take the brownies out of the oven just when they have a crumb clinging to a toothpick to keep them moist and chewy. Click here for the recipe….
